So if people were saying JoustPong could benefit mightily from 
fractional position and/or speed...I guess I'd need 16 bit math 
for all that? For a bit I thought about using a single byte, but 
it probably donesn't have enough precision...is there a guide to 
doing 16 bit addition/subtraction anywhere?  it seems trickier than I
first guessed it would be...

 Indeed, the Russians' predisposition for quiet reflection followed by 
 sudden preventive action explains why they led the field for many 
 years in both chess and ax murders.  --Marshall Brickman, Playboy 4/73
