  This Is Not space invaYders
  This example code is in the public domain, etc, have fun :)
// pin assignments
int annodes0 = 2;int annodes1 = 3;int annodes2 = 4;int annodes3 = 5;int annodes4 = 6;
//pin 7 is spare
int cathodes0 = 8;int cathodes1 = 9;int cathodes2 = 10;int cathodes3 = 11;int cathodes4 = 12;
int IndicatorLED = 13;
