Primetime Serial Program

My new PIC programmer showed up. This one's a PIC-PG2C serial programmer. Messed with it for about an hour before I got it to program a 16F648A using IC-Prog. What I learned:
1. Can't use a 40-pin ZIF socket with this programmer. The inner and outer rows of pins have different pinouts.
2. IC-Prog should be configured for a JDM with nothing inverted.
3. Using the Direct I/O setting with XP is bad.
