FPGA success

So Finally!!! I have a working FPGA!! I am using 57% of the slices in the LX25 at 200MHz and she is running hot. Had to hurry and find a small heat sink. It took longer than I thought but progress is very fast now that I have a way to debug with a serial connection and a picoblaze on board monitoring what is going on!! It only took me 8 months to communicate ANYTHING with it (sarcasm), and another 2 to produce a design that produced real and useful data. Now I am having a ball trying to get it to go faster and faster with clock speeds and design (pipelineing). Every free moment I am dreaming up stuff to put on the thing.

Once, I get to version 1 of the design I will post it. I already have my first picoblaze/serial connection design posted on my personal web page.
