GBX v1.0 important notice!

Unfortunately, and perhaps inevitably, I fucked up a small part of the initial version of the GBX v1.0 spec - the text mistakenly specified all numbers should be little-endian, when the examples (and my emulator, and the ROMs I released) all use big-endian, which was my intent from the start.

I've fixed this and you can find the updated version here. Note that I'm not considering this a version update (because the old version was purely a mistake and contradicted its own examples in any case) so the version number 1.0 is retained.

a few misc notes
- the URL is the same, I decided not to retain the old version at the old URL because it's literally not a valid version and I don't want people landing on it and trying to use it
- I don't *think* anyone has implemented GBX according to the little-endian version, but if you have, let me know (also I'm sorry)
- if any little-endian implementations actually exist, the version number would be interpreted as 16777216.0 by a big-endian implementation

- Uwu I made a fucky wucky
