Odds 'n' Ends
Welcome to a selection of programs with a difference -- they are either unfinished or have errors in them. The reason I have put these on the site is because you may want to finish the programs yourself and improve them (if you do, send them back to me so they can be put back on this site!), or you can use parts of them in your own programs.

This is the program to write and download messages to the RAM.
These are some example messages :
