comment Why is it called General Purpose Processor
In the future, you may not want to accept the first answer so quickly. You might get a better answer given a little more patience.

comment What is a pulse width modulation for DC motors really?
@newbie, A PWM signal is typically used as an output from a microcontroller to the input of a transistor. Power for the DC motor is provided through the transistor. The duty cycle of the PWM varies to control the voltage on the output side of the transistor and thus, the speed of the DC motor.

comment Identify which face of a cube is up
I agree. A 3-axis accelerometer is the way to go. Just for reference, Atmel has some very affordable dev kit add-ons with accels, gyros, and magentometers (atmel.com/products/microcontrollers/avr/sensors_xplain.aspx). I have no affiliation with Atmel...just thought these were relatively affordable solutions relevant to the question.

comment Use UART Tx as digital output?
+1 for suggesting DTR pin instead of TX.

comment Where are static variables stored?
The placement of a const variable is controlled by a non-standard keyword sometimes. Note that there is often a way to configure the linker to define where the const variables are stored. This, of course, varies with each tool chain.

Another +1 for removing all of the stuff unrelated to flashing the LED.

comment Is it possible to use a Microchip PIC32 as a USB host and device at the same time?
@Russell - I may be wrong but I don't think your interpreting the question quite right. I think Federico is looking for something closer to Majenko's answer. First, you can't have two host devices on the same USB bus which implies he needs a PIC32 device with two USB ports. Second, I doubt someone asking this level of question would want to bit-bang a USB interface on some GPIO pins...I think they would be looking for a PIC with two USB peripherals. Again, this is just my take on the question.

+1 for digging up the excellent link.
