are there any other chips than the Atmega168 and 328 that i can program with the Arduino IDE?? or maybe another program i can use? i really like the "basic-like" coding, but the 168 and 328 are simply overkill for some of my projects. plus, i can't buy them anywhere nearby. what i'm looking for is probably a program/programmer that i can use instead of the arduino, with basic-like coding. also, it would be awesome not to waste space on the arduino bootloader.

 the arduino mega uses the ATMEGA1280
the teensy boards use the ATMEGA32UT and AT90USB1286 and fit on a breadboard for under $25
the sanguino uses the ATMEGA644 for the same price
ATMEGA 8 is still available for a dollar less than 168 or 328, and shipping isn't too much if you buy them with a few other things from one place
the DEFCON 17 bage used an AVR325P chip, costs $60, but comes with built in batteries, buttons and an LED matrix((shield compatible)
i'm not sure what the illuminat o genesis uses, but for $10 more you double the pins.
the leaflabs.com maple has  39 I/O pins using an 
STM32 F103RB for $50, but is sold out
the pinguino from hackinglab.org uses a similar easy to use IDE(so they say anyway) with a PIC 18F2520 microcontroller, similar stats, costs are lower as there is no need for a USB chip

there are probably more out there.
