    Thanks for that, that one's new to me, POKE, PUSH, Bit, Byte, Nibble, and JUMP I know from the dark and dim assembler days, but that was a very, very long time ago.

    Just keep posting; the friendly folk in General will gently push you back on the rails should you make any serious infractions.
