SDL?  I don't know what that is.  :(  But the RTC ruled!  (rules)  That, and
the interrupt controller.  Never knew that one very well, but I used the RTC
more than a few times.

OOH!  Shiny!  That might just work.  But you'd have to have a relatively "new"
internet connection to make it work reliably...a slow connection would mean 
dropped frames, "cheating" joysticks, and all kinds of generally bad stuff.  :P
