The files I sent you were an attempt not to re-write the master but rather to simply drop out code
that outputted data to devices not present. It bothered me that the code as it came from John
assumed his complete and exact configuration of boards. This meant that if one of our
configurations differed, but our hardware was at the same address used in his, that unexpected
results would occur when the wrong commands were issued.
I acknowledge that a serious re-write would be beneficial, and that using C would be desirable
keeping in mind there is only 2048 bytes of ROM space for the entire thing. When I dropped out
support for boards I don't have, the space remaining for expansion grew to over 800 bytes.
Obviously we would have to be very careful in C to get everything done and still fit in the

Note: I don't use messenger, or skype, or facebook, chat programs in general. Having always-on open communication links through massive public servers I don't have control over seems like too much of an invitation to be infected by a virus or bot. It is bad enough that my Mac wants to stay in periodic contact with Apple's cloud. Skype was tempting before Microsoft bought them. There have been too many examples of remote session links being abused by vendor employees. Even "back to my mac" makes me nervous. There was a recent episode where Apple cooperated with a social engineer and compromised someone's entire electronic persona. If you want to speak with me, calling me on the phone works well, and you don't have to wonder if the electronic mail got through or not. When I say "Hello, this is Doug", you know who you are talking to. Just in case you were curious.
