Thanks alot! I looked at your source very briefly. Did Bob have that many comments in his code? He was known for commenting well but that's a lot of comments.

no, in the original source there were only few comments (usually helpful ones, true) .
i added a lot of comments by myself, i hope they help too.

but it seems that he didn't use all the constants he defined at the beginning of
the program. perhaps he hardcoded the values first, then created the constants
and forgot to replace all of the magic numbers in the code ?
