Chris, I'd see that and might briefly wonder what TOPS is. AYS, it's
partially self-documenting. Adding an extra comment like

;Set pre-scale bits to 101 (1:64, = 100kHz IRQ) and turn TMR0 on

would explain further. Mostly it's really helpful when you come back
in 6 months to edit or re-understand your own code
