Re: PIC12F675 TMR0 workaround from 'missing' start/stop bit.
Since the early days of PICs, Timer 0 was defined as running constantly. You can alter the clock, reset the counter register (TMR0 = 0), trigger an interrupt, poll the TMR0IF, or even just read the TMR0 register for a reference. If you need to stop the Timer, use a Timer 2/4/6 or 1/3/5 type.
