I2C Continuum

I say that this article is now NOT ONLY about an I2c LCD display facility just added to the ESP8266 boards but theres a PARALLEL version as well, making use of GPIO 4,5,12,13,15 and 16. Comments below about format apply equally to the I2c and parallel versions for the latter, simply use device 255. Note when you do that you lose GPIO13 as an indicator automatically until next power-up. Success with I2c once I realised there was something up at the Arduino end which I could work around, my ESP8266 I2c endeavours have been coming on in leaps and bounds!”
