I have a question about the 76 cycles available during the horizontal
scanline. It appears as if this ignores the leftover right overscan area.
Is the horizontal blank (beam return) forced at that point or can the
programmer allow the scanline to draw through the overscan or something?
Doesn't the background color do that (extend through right overscan) anyway?
I have overheard discussions of not calling WSYNC and using up all
available processor time, so I was wondering whether that was time left
during the active portion of the screen or after the 76 cycle mark in the
