Good day all!

As I'm strolling around usenet for a while, this seems a more or less  
active newsgroup, so I'll try posting this in here:

I'm using the PICs of Microchip, at the moment the 18F2550 because of its  
USB port. It's speed is (above) 20MHz, which is more than enough to see if  
someone is in the shower and to close the curtains then. Even for the  
secondary speedmeter for the car its great, and you can read out the logs  
really easy. But I do have following problems:
The guy who programmed the GUI for the USB readout and the program for the  
USB connection moved away and isn't able to make some new stuff when I'd  
need it. Maybe someone knows how to programm a protocol and how to  
interact PIC with a PC!?
The costs of a 2550 are about 8 quid (Euros in fact). I think there are  
more, lets say cost-effective microprocessors on the market? Somewhere?

Anyone knows another good board for microcontrollers? Would be greatly
