One of the odd projects I'd like to do "someday", and that I thought of
some years ago, would be to use the 2600 to as a scorekeeper for an
electronic dartboard.

I never did get to figure out how the boards work, but I figured it should
have been possible to hook it up to a joystick port and use the other for
selection, player change, etc (or if that was part of the board itself, you'd
be able to use both ports for the interface).

The software itself shouldn't be TOO complicated...
