Assuming I understand this right and also remember Timothy's
point of view correctly he didn't like the NASM idea for some reason.
What I want to say is please check back with him before starting.
I personally would want to minimize the chance of coding for the
trashcan. Don't get me wrong, great you are here - just
check with Timothy before starting I'd say.

I hope that made sense. Please don't beat me if not :-)

Have a great morning/evening/<your timezone stuff>,
