Hey take it easy, I hardly meant to offend ! I was not "judging" your
skills whatsoever (I am beginner too, I also used printf in my
first days of programming...and gave up on it on the same day, as soon
as I timed it with my oscilloscope and my eyes poped out when they saw
how long it took to run and how much KB it "stole" from my tight
Mega32 !). I was really only showing my appreciation of David Brown's
humour, nothing more, not at all laughing at the specific target/object
of this humour, honest !
