GBPVR Plugin Modification

I worked on my first plugin for GBPVR. Actually, to learn about the plugin architecture, I took the Comics plugin (used for viewing syndicated comic strips on your TV) and modified it to chiefly add a zoom and pan function (otherwise, it gets hard to read comics on a television).

For me, the rendering (where all the hard work is done) is pretty easy, since I've used GDI+ quite a bit in the past.

I emailed it to "Sub", the author of GBPVR, and he put it up right away. So at least I've got that going for me... which is nice.

I'm brainstorming now for what other useful information could be accessed from a television and remote control environment.
