Wow. I wanted to make a temperature and vac pressure controller to use in the Maximite, standalone PIC based computer that I built from a kit a while ago. I wanted to be able to monitor the temperature and switch heat lamps on an off as well as keep the vac pressure within a range rather than at a set point.
Although I spent 5 years studying electrical engineering I can't design electronics to save my life so I thought I try outsourcing it via freelancer.com. Its the first time I've used it and after posting it up last night I now have 10 bids on the project from 6 different countries from people who've done electronics design up to military hardware levels!!!! Wow!!! Stay tuned for the outcome..
