It's inspired by this terrible idea floating around: MT: Replace a semicolon (;) with a greek question mark (;) in your friend's C# code and watch them pull their hair out over the syntax error

Since I'm running the whole thing within a DOSBox emulator, I now have access to networking and modern tools to try and achieve what I want however. DOS games were very simple in that they didn't use much of an operating system, and wrote everything directly to unprotected memory.
