HOWTO: MSP430G2xxx Stand Alone

I wrote up a little HOWTO which shows how to drive a MSP430G2xx MCU standalone (without Launchpad). It also shows, how to use a Launchpad for in circuit programming through only three lines (Spy By Wire). In the HOWTO, we first will have a look on the most minimal set-up needed, to run a MSP430 value line MCU outside the Launchpad. Then we will detail a little more on how to supply a regulated voltage to the device, and last we will see, how the Launchpad could be used as in circuit programmer.
