I would want N no larger than 30.
I am testing only on localhost and have N ports instead of N computers for now.
Fibonnaci calculation: just a cpu cycle eating app for testing, will change.
Keyboard handling is important.
Win32 is development and deployment platform.
UDP choice: I would like the faster of the two protocols (UDP vs TCP), although TCP has congestion
control. Is TCP the better choice here?
Robust: will it work even under heavy network load
