Tera Term Pro what I use as well.

Speaking of.. has anyone found a good free windows terminal program that 
will display the values in hex as well as ascii?  Realterm is the only 
thing I've found so far.  It's useable but not quite there yet.  A split 
screen ascii/hex setup would be ideal.

Outputing values in binary form is really handy for the ram init code 
where you can't use any of the nice bin2hex debugging macros due to lack 
of registers.
