Display progress report

I added numbers to the display capabilities. I added a status byte to the communication protocol, and now the 'server' (the computer that sends the messages to be displayed) can specify the following things:
- Timecode: this makes sure that the dots are displayed. This allows me to display time-codes in the format 'hh.mm.ss.'.
- Display immediately: if this flag is set, then the receive buffer is immediately copied over the display buffer upon completion, instead of at the end of a full scroll of the current display buffer.
- Fast scoll: if this flag is set, then a fast scrolling speed is selected.

And I decided to add an easter egg functionality to the Mach F -- but I'm not telling what it is, because then it wouldn't be an easter egg anymore. :)
