Developer Message

Present at 0x05FB0 in the slave CPU:

LIVING ON A LIGHTED STAGE
APPROACHES THE UNREAL
FOR THOSE WHO THINK AND FEEL
IN TOUCH WITH SOME REALITY
BEYOND THE GILDED CAGE
CAST IN THIS UNLIKELY ROLE
ILL-EQUIPPED TO ACT
WITH INSUFFICIENT TACT
ONE MUST PUT UP BARRIERS
TO KEEP ONESELF INTACT

These are the opening lyrics to Rush's "Limelight".
