How is it going?

I mainly hack around with PIC based microcontroller. Seems that most if not all of my projects have LEDs in them. Not sure why that is...

You can see a few of my projects here:

Nothing wrong with LEDs...

I like to make things with LEDs as well, although I know NOTHING about microcontrollers and such - basically, I can hook lights up to a battery and a switch, but that's about it.

Any advice on where to start for learning about microcontrollers and such?

Best thing to do is buy a few PIC chips, a programmer and make a few basic programs.

I would suggest starting with a chip such as the 16F628. If you are looking to get one or two chips get them from Randy at Glitchbuster , his shipping rates are very good.
