One thing I found helps with that "fatness" problem you got in a couple of
spots is to confine your screen coordinates ... x,y : byte ... less chance of
fractional or out of range returns causing the plotting decisions to wobble.
(Text mode is decidedly low res, so use a low res numbering scheme to match
