      As I'm sure quite a few of you have used this, so have I, and it is
      what they claim.

      I am not programming much in assembly anymore, so for simple projects
      I cheat and use PicBasic Pro (PBP) with the '628.

      The chip is readily available from everywhere, and useful features
      like true multitasking make it great, even with PBP.

      I switched from the '84 in one day, and wondered how I got by with
      the '84.

      Have a nice afternoon,
