Keyboard passcode lock

A simple keyboard based password lock. It uses a ROM module to check each letter inputted to see if it matches the ROM address. If it doesn't match, it will reset and turn on the "denied" light. Once the pointer hits "00", it will assume it's read all the characters, and will grant access.

 To save you the trouble, the password is "password" (the best password ever made). You can adjust the ROM to use a different password if you want.

Very neat. Maybe extend this to allow 3 tries until it completely locks itself.

Interesting project.

One thing I noticed is that if you type slowly (to the point where the buffer becomes empty) it will end up denying on the next character, even when it is correct.

Bugger, I hoped nobody would notice XD

It's surprisingly annoying to make this sort of thing, but I'll try and make a better version some time soon.

technically you can put in tons of passwords in a row without stopping and it will read them all and if the password is somehow in that line of passwords it will grant access... is there a way to stop that?

(I have found how to make it not accept the password if there is another input after the password... but I can't find a way to stop there being inputs before it)
