Not quite. That may be the simplest way, but you can also use inter-process
communications type tricks. The classic for a two byte counter is to read
high-low-high and try again if the high values don't match. That assumes the
interrupt routine updates low then (maybe) high.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
