Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

Wow this is a coincidence. I watched a documentary about something in the 30's or 40's in the last month and they showed a downtown building with a scrolling news feed a bit like the CNN/SkyNews "ticker tape" and my first thought was "that can't be right, how could they show scrolling text back then?".

Wow, the guys climbing around the signs to clean them and replace the bulbs are doing so without a safety harness!

 

But since OSHA, (Occupational Safety and Health Act) wasn't in existence before 1970 I guess such practices were common place.

Similar to the iron workers for building skyscrapers.

 

I think I'll stick with my curent job!
