Really long final year project meeting at uni last night. Things seem to be back on track again, which is good, because we only have about two weeks to finalize the whole thing. Well enough to be back at work again today.

Some talk on the Canberra Linux User’s Group mailling list implied that the Belkin Nostromo N50 gamepad isn’t supported on Linux. This is cool, because I have been looking for an inexpensive ($70 AU in this case), cool, portable, and preferably USB device to play with for a while.

So I picked one up. It’s great — it doesn’t instantly work (although I might just be missing the module:
