IMHO, a 286 would be a better port than an Atari, as it wouldn't be a
problem at all to leave my monitor stand running 24/7. Just have to
remember to grab the buff files with a floppy every couple
[days/weeks/months] =)

Although I do know the 286 is a 16-Bit Processor, if everybody had thiers
on, I'm sure we could get a decent keyrate out of all of them combined, and
make up for the processor with the oddles of 640K RAM everybody's has! 

However, I think a PalmPilot port would take higher priority.
