more ili9341 driver issues. reset was not called even though it was defined in code

A project log for spi write up to 64 colors at a time on Arduino!

amg8833 equivilent sensor thermal cam is a perfect example of how to write faster with spi lcd displays. 128x128 sample fast on Arduino.

during continued testing i had other issues where display would intermittently fail after using it for a while. i checked and replaced wires, even soldered over connectors on Arduino board (they were loose anyways), finally i tried directly wiring cs, and reset. if reset was gnd it always worked. cs didn't act differently.

the code that init display for adafruit (granted this is not an adafruit display)

while using adafruits graphics tests found this issue with reset pin not even being used in code! :

 Adafruit_ILI9341 tft = Adafruit_ILI9341(TFT_CS, TFT_DC);

changed it to this

Adafruit_ILI9341 tft = Adafruit_ILI9341(TFT_CS, TFT_DC,TFT_RST);

second set of problems solved. i'll check another display when it arrives saturday.

i switched inputs to this to match pin out in thermal cam sketch. 

#define TFT_DC 8
#define TFT_CS 10
#define TFT_RST 9
