Journal Journal: My latest buy, a PC gamepad! 1

Bought myself a Logitech Rumblepad gamepad two days ago.
It's great for games that are built for it and works fine for others too. It's rather comfy too.
Today I configured it for standard use and now I can browse the net (other than typing text) using it :-P
Pretty stupid, but it lets me use the computer from far away.
By using the mouse gestures extension, I can do more advanced actions such as zooming text in/out, viewing source and the likes.
Works good for watching video using MPlayer aswell.

Anyone knows more interesting things I can do with a gamepad which you think is beyond the trivial?

(The pad is vibrating, but since i'm not a girl I can't really use it for interesting things :)


Journal Journal: The moderation system is broken. 3

Here you can see a post of mine where I strictly said to the mods, DON'T MOD ME, I'M VISIBLE ENOUGH, USE THE POINTS ELSEWHERE.

I don't know where it will get when anyone reads this, but right now it's +5 insightful.

And then I replied to my own post.
If this post gets modded up aswell, something will be broken, in addition the moderation system.

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
