Improved game snapshot at TL homepageProposalsIndex ->

First of all, I'd like to thank everyone who was involved in displaying currently played games on the TL homepage. I like to watch games of my team mates, but often find myself to be on the go with too lousy internet connection to use a regular FICS client. Hence the snapshots on the homepage are a very good solution for me!

I wonder if it is possible to add two features to these snapshots:
- display the current remaining time for the White and Black player (e.g. between the game header and the chessboard)
- by clicking on any single chessboard, go to a separate page, which would display only that single chessboard (with game header and current time remaining)?

Improving the game relay has been on my list of things to do for a while. I started working some new game relay code when we were using the previous web host, and they complained that it used too many resources, so I had to undo the changes.

Now that we have a new, better, host, I might try to make some improvements. However, our server is due to be upgraded "soon", and I don't want to make any changes until that happens.
