I ordered a few, and was immediately informed they were on back-order....

Well, did everybody order and get one/some of 
these?
 
I was pretty excited for a while. Eventually I figured 
out the parts had only 1K or 2K of program space, and a few bytes of RAM. I 
figure it has to be disappointing to develop any C programs for them as they 
would almost be out of resources before the initialization was 
done.
 
I also thought maybe this was a $4.30 USB to serial 
cable. But then i wasn't sure because it looked like it went to the JTAG rather 
than the serial port. So I didn't bother to order one. Then they were all back 
ordered.
 
Any body got experience to report?
 
Randy

  Nevermind, I'm an idiot.

      Had this link sent to me yesterday:

http://hackaday.com/2010/06/22/ti-makes-a-big-bid-for-the-hobby-market/

I've 
      used PIC and AVR a great deal but not MSP so at that price point I ordered 
      one straight away just so I have something to experiment with. 
      

Cheers, 
Dave.
