Apparently my Boz-5 Assembler operates at least partially on faith alone. I just doubted a small section of code, recompiled and re-ran, and now the program isn't working the way it was before.
This is just a little slice of "don't you wish you had my life"...

Edit: fixed it. Oh thank heavens. I really do not want a program that responds negatively to the concept of skepticism.
