I just ordered (and received) the 28X which has 8/8 input/outputs and 600 lines of code storage. Very cool. I'm planning to use it to replace some very old "quizzing" hardware in our teen church group. You should see the gear they are using! The box was made in the late 70's and uses transistors, lamps to create the logic. The PICAXE will replace the entire internals with just a few LED's and some resistors. AWESOME technology. I'll take some pictures of the insides of the old units, they must be seen to be believed. (9 - 9volt batteries power the unit)

Peter Anderson, (The same person you got the kit from) has many items in stock even though he doesn't list them on ebay. As they say, if you don't have, it's because you didn't ask... He's been very helpful with requested items.

Seem to be struggling a bit with this at the moment, which might require some reading up on how to use solderless breadboards!
My problem is that I cant seem to write to the picaxe. I hook it up to the serial port, give it some power and the software successfully detects what picaxe I am using. thats great. My problem is when I try to clear the memory or upload a program to it I get an error saying cable not connected or something similar.
as far as I can tell the serial port connector is connected to the right pins. any ideas?
