Testing done! Everything worked fine, although I didn't get a chance to
try the sound portions (my sound card is not in the box currently). I
have a decent speed Alpha (PCA56 533MHz SX), but very little RAM (128MB),
so I'm sure it could perform better. I'm curious to see if this works
better on EV6 if I compiled it as such (any takers?).
