Charter of newsgroup

Is this an appropriate newsgroup to submit questions regarding PICs?

I haven't been able to find any newsgroups listed as such that are 
provided by my ISP.

No. This is the 555 newsgroup. And sometimes politics. And cooking, don't forget the cooking and recipes.

Sure. There are plenty of people here who can answer questions about PICs -- as you don't mind occasional comments like: "I'd rather plunge rusty 10d nails into my eyballs that use a PIC processor." ;) -- Grant Edwards grante Yow! .. I at feel... JUGULAR... visi.com

There is no pic newsgroup. Some poorly-run servers carry a spurious piclist newsgroup (gated to a mailing list?) that has not been created according to the Big-8 procedures, and is not propagated by well-configured servers. pete -- pete@fenelon.com "I once coaxed a dog into a library" - Tommy Saxondale
