Assembly complete with no errors.

Bars now slide in and out more nicely, also shrinking code :)

That is some serious code reductions that you are doing. I´m guessing that it is just one of those things where you cannot stop thinking about your code, even when you are not in front of your computer. I sometimes have it the same way, just getting a new idea on how to reduce the code or change the algorithms while driving or eating or doing anything else in life.  Keep it up, you will soon find something else to add to fill up the space that you make available :-)

Hi, thanks for the comment!

Yes, you're quite right! I have about one hour car drive home from work and during that time I already sort of start coding this thing in my head, and I have a really weak spot for tiny MCUs - I've seen enough of those bigger ones at work, LOL.

I'm actually crunching the code to fit something more in there still, like scrolling text!
