Overall a great introduction. I offer the following minor corrections.

"each being a squre" -> "each being a square"
"(The other one I got my own)." -> "(The other one I got on my own)."
"represents that things Horizontal Speed." -> "represents that thing's
Horizontal Speed."
"you don't get to scared" -> "you don't get too scared"
"it make a noticeable delay" -> "it makes a noticeable delay"
"handwaving I've beendoing" -> "handwaving I've been doing"
"bit "D1" of VSYNC needs to" -> "bit "D1" of VSYNC needs to be"
"bits are numbedered from" -> "bits are numbered from"
"no matter whant Nick" -> "no matter what Nick"
"put in a -1 in the left byte..." -> "put in a -1 in the left nibble..."
"it's the left byte that metters," -> "it's the left nibble that matters,"
"-1 in the left byte, who cares" -> "-1 in the left nibble, who cares"
"for godawful reasons," -> "for god awful reasons,"
"Whoo! Now," -> "Whew!, Now,"
"WSYNC has to immediately prevede" -> "WSYNC has to immediately precede"
