Test a PIC16F819-I/P to see if it works?

Hey everybody. I am normally an Arduino user but I have a nice pile of PIC16F819-I/P chips and would like to test them to see if they work.

I don't want to get the ChipKit programmer quite yet and would like to upload a "blink" program to the PICs from an Arduino. Does anybody have a good 'ible that would work with this particular chip?

Here is a wonderful PIC processor page


And here is how to build your own USB PIC programmer


Good making...

I saw that. Just didn't see any for this particular chip. Found one that says it should cover most 16F chips, so going to try it.
