Hi, Gene,

this unit is really old, but good. I used it first time on SuSE 5.1 on a 
really ancient FreePascal version. But I must say, it simply worked. =D

The only problem is that it is running without buffers and all this fancy 
stuff which FOSSIL had, and at that time I was a novice on Linux. But if you 
are interested in, I can search for my wrapper I wrote at that time, It made 
life a little bit easier to me.

Yes, Microchip is a good choice. I love this PICs. And if you wish, buy 
MikroPascal (http://www.mikroe.com), this is a fully featured PASCAL COMPILER 
(!!!) which creates code for PICs! -- Really excellent.

have a look on my web site, you can see there a prototype of a handheld data 
recorder I built. It consumes - including the SD-CARD - 2-3mA only, so you can 
imagine how long it runs with one battery. (http://www.hantsch.co.at then 
choose  -> Entwicklungen  on the left. But everything is in German
