OLED Screen is Operational

I got my new OLED screen to run the example code.  To draw my own bitmaps, I'll need an app that can convert a monochrome bmp into a character array.  So far, there's only a windows app to do the conversion ... though I wonder if ImageMagick can do it.

This display is for my robotics class.  Since my robot needs to be autonomous, printing debug information to the USB port isn't gonna work.  (At least, not for more than a couple meters, when the cable slack runs out.)  I'll attach this guy to the robot and print debug messages to it.
