  • I agree that they are different, but if you are looking for a 555 substitute for time savings, the Picaxe is cheaper than the Mini, and way WAY easier than an AVR. The Picaxe has a free programmer, and you can build your own programming cable from things you have laying around the house. BASIC is a snap for anybody. It's easier than Python even. Also, I've never used a decoupling cap or crystal with a Picaxe.

  • You list the Arduino Pro Mini for $10, but for $2.95 you can use the Picaxe 08M2, which is easier, cheaper, and has the exact same footprint as the 555.

No public wish lists :(
