    Here's some software to read a Mattel Powerglove through the Linux
serial driver, you must be using a Menelli box to interface to the glove.
I also wrote a predictive filter to try and eliminate glitches, a TCP-IP
server-client pair to read data in your application, a posture look-up
table to recognise hand shapes, and a simple attempt at recognising 6DOF
movement with vectors and tokenising them into gestures.
    I'm not supporting the software, but I will be hacking around with it
again after Christmas, so the only condition on using it is to send me
any fixes, improvements, and ideas on making it better.

(there is a also an AMI PRO document to go with this stuff, which is
the project report I wrote for my BSc degree.)

I don't think anyone's gonna have a problem with the US acting in assistance to a constabulary action. Whether they are trained for it or would bring such a reputation as to be a detriment is an operational concern. The problem is when decisions to implement are made unilaterally.

Not saying that the UN has any great track record. That's a whole other debate. It just happens to be the closest thing to a democratic process we have, internationally.

Would that be jail time calling? Here's to hoping.

I want to know how much these pirates bilked Joe Investor for. Furthermore, I hope both IBM and Novell are interested in cooperating with bodies such as the SEC in holding SCO and Canopy management personally responsible for any and all wrongdoing, including both legal malpractice and stock manipulation, during the SCO race towards infamy.
