Journal: My latest buy, a PC gamepad! 1

Journal by Soul-Burn666

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: The moderation system is broken. 3

Journal by Soul-Burn666

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.

No problem is so large it can't be fit in somewhere.

Working...
