That would be pretty cool, but I still think the best solution as far as
a hardware/software combo goes would be to build a clock cart that has
some sort of clock in it that feeds the time variables to the 2600 and
has a battery backup. That way you wouldn't have to re-enter the time
each time you want to play a game. Maybe even have a wee digital LCD
display on the cart itself so you can see the time when the cart isn't
in the machine.

Or maybe I'll just glue my sailor-moon ring watch to the back of my cart. ;)
