I have sent a message that was placed in one of the next issues about
the 16x84 being outdated and the 16f628 being the HW replacement.

Oh no, you don't want to start that war again! A few possible answers:
- stick with 16x84 because that is was most published projects use
- 16f877
- 16f877A
- 18F452

Looking for another flame war ;)
