As usual, you're acting like a dumbass, like you're too damned dumb to
admit the possibility of break-before-make or vice versa. That
particular circuit is so damned fast, he could load the full pattern
before even a reed dropped out that shouldn't, so your low-brained
criticisms are asinine in that respect. And it is an easy parallel port
interface if that's what he's using- looks like 6 writes to me. The OP
knows what he wants, so he can adapt the operation to whatever he wants.
He doesn't need some low-life like you telling him what to do.

Like "my favorite" is some kind of stamp of approval? -You CAN'T be
