Hi there - yes, it does work without VDEL - I just went about
trying to do the 6 char routine in what seemed like the most
obvious way to do it.  However, I do remember it only working
properly at certain horizontal locations - I had to play with
it a bit to make it work.  It would not work freely the way
Eckhard's cool karate demo does.  Also, yes, I suspect it's
only looking okay because I'm not using all 8 of the pixels
for each char - the unused pixel or two serves as a buffer.
