I didn't even know such a thing existed already (well, I thought
it might, but thought it would be a learning experience to write
it anyway)

Yeah, the controls are pretty clunky. I don't think I fully
understand how the fire button latches are supposed to be used,
but even if it worked right, the design is still clunky.. UI
design has never been my strong point.

I'll have to find his, first... Mine could use improvement, I'll
probably take a break from what I'm trying to do now and see what
can be done... What I'm trying to do now being to write my own 6-digit
score routine. I know I could just borrow code from something else, but
I really want to understand it (best way to understand the wheel is to
re-invent the wheel, even if my version comes out square :)

Thanks for the feedback
