switch back to number pad - because it's assumed you want a letter next

Read this part again: "For commercial-level code... fair enough" - I agree with you entirely on that score.

I wasn't talking about that though - the whole point of demos WAS to use as many tricks as possible, to show off to your mates (and the wider world) for a few weeks, until the next bare-metal coder found a way to do something that blew yours away... If it ran on one specific variant only - so be it.
