Internet Personal Messenger V2

Hi everyone!

This is it: The IPM2 project has started. If everything works out right, it will become an Aduino-based internet-enabled message display for the living room. As to its planned features, these are listed here:
The push mode, user interaction and a basic chiptune player are already implemented in version 1 of the project, in which the cheaper ENC28J60 ethernet controller was used. However, this one used up so much of the microcontroller's RAM that the poll mode couldn't be realized. And so, we're starting off with a new NIC.
The NIC is already here and seems to work fine:
I'll tell you whether it supports simultaneous operation as server and client in my next post, where you'll also find the sources for the example I'll create.
Bye for now!
