Hallo Marko,

> By the way, why do you need the "tya" in the code?

The remains of some debugging I forgot to erase. Same for using address
$0000 as temporary storage for Y. I had problems with receiving data and I
tried all kinds of tricks. At the end it appeared that I addressed an empty
drive :(

> Or the sei and cli?  

IIRC this was used in the original C= routine as well. I also wondered as I
thought that SEI would block timer interrupts. Then how could the computer
find out about time-outs?

Why didn't I think of this nice idea? The debugging mentioned above was in
fact displaying info on the screen.
