Hi again.

I am pretty sure this is right, but I need to verify that it is, so I don't
look like a fool when trying to explain this.  Or maybe it's just late, and
I'm second-guessing myself.

Just to verify:
A scanline has 76 cycles.  STA WSYNC takes 3 cycles.
So, in simple code:

STA WSYNC ;takes you to the end of the previous scanline

; This scanline:
; Use 73 cycles
STA WSYNC ; will give you a total of 76 cycles, an entirely FULL scanline

; And we begin our next scanline, right at the beginning...

So, is that correct?
