I've once written an assembler rutine for copying the character matrices to the display memory. Looking at the code, I observed some constants. I replaced the constants with parameters and experimented with various values. To my surprise, I discovered that the text was displayed in various interesting ways (skewed, right to left, top to bottom, etc). Math is really useful sometimes.
