I have to disagree... 40 bytes starting at 64 far overflows the 80 bytes of
memory it has. On my unit anyway, if I use the 0x40, then the second line
wraps around the 80 byte memory and starts overwriting the beginning of the
first line. And if I use 40, then the second line appears in the correct

HOWEVER... .I still can't get the second line of my display to show any
pixels :( I'm really sad now. I've asked who I bought it from to send
another unit for me to try to see if the one I have is faulty. But I just
think that it is an initialization problem that the unit is working in
