Yea it's pretty awesome. We learned how to do it at Virginia Tech, then the professor let us use EEPROMs, which you just stuck into a special circuit that would do it all really easy. "Gotta learn to crawl before you can walk, bitches!" - Our TA.

Most complex circuits with an EEPROM were designed with the flashing circuitry built in, so the engineers could reprogram the chips without removing them. This is what we have in our cars.
