I ahve made my own simple filesystem and wanted to test it, so I got my nifty Hex editor and I wrote my FS header, and such..then I wrote this file to the FDD with partcopy, easy right? well apparantly partcopy doesn't perform right when writing files to sectors that aren't exactly the size of the sector, so after much pain of destroying my OS to see what was wrong..
I used FASM to write a test file using the nifty "times-...db 0" thing
this is probably the most nifty thing I have ever done, as I can use db ".." for putting test text content, I can put exectutable info into it also with assembly instructions, and I can even use the file command for putting in my own test file stuff

Now, FASM can't read binary files like a hex editor, but it does very well with writing them

..I just wanted to tell people, and maybe give them an idea..
