Simplifying the Joysticks' Wiring

Our Parallel Pong game uses a couple of Zippy Joysticks, which have been connected via a breadboard. In order to free the joysticks from the bulky breadboard and ensure more secure wiring, we acquired a small Adafruit PermaProto board and a ribbon cable to transfer the functions of the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins directly to the board.
