 From the description, he wanted to learn more about the PIC USART, 
which is admirable.

But, if there is such a thing as negative geek or hacker cred, this 
would qualify.  It isn't particularly novel, doesn't expose 
functionality in any interesting way, etc.  I mean doing it in one 
thing, but youtubing the end product, and putting the source on github 
seems like overkill.

Of course, this author is a guy who wrote a FAT library in AVR code (and 
then pitched it and modified a better FAT library to add LFN and FAT32 
support) just so he could learn about the format.  Maybe I should 
include myself in the same negative cred category.
