    Unfortunate, but makes sense. This isn't something I'll be doing often, though. My migration path isn't a frequent one.

    I kind of solved that latest issue, but I'm not quite sure what I did to get it into the bad state, nor am I quite clear how I fixed it.

    Ultimately, the argument against global variables is that it is very easy to create spaghetti code with them. That means that there are times when they are perfectly fine: Any program so small that...

    C3 would be 8 bits represented in hex. 50115 is not 16 bits represented in hex, so it would be decimal. If you convert 50115 to hex, you get C3C3. So, all you are really doing is reading bytes into...
