Out of the Blue

We had our first frost here within the last few days, and it sure is frosty this morning... won't be long before we're having snowball fights in these parts. I have to point out the fun-sounding aspects of this for those of you in tropical climes... saying pretty soon now we're going to have to be shoveling doesn't get any more pleasant knowing there are people out there tanning and surfing.

A bunch of the tweaks here yesterday were to clear up HTML compliance issues (thanks again Frans), so theoretically there should be fewer issues today, rather than more, but again, if we've broken something on your browser, please drop a line with some details about what's happening.

And I definately do not want a cordless.

too bad, I love my Logitech stick. Playing DC No Fly Zone with it is a sexual experience.

For a HOTAS set-up I agree with Nin, the X45 is sweet. Also, Thrustmaster makes a dumbed-down HOTAS called the Afterburner II:

I own one and use it for Mechwarrior 4: Mercs and its really smooth. The only complaint I have is the button placement on the joystick part is a bit screwy but otherwise its a good value.

Then of course you have the ultimate toy:

all metal construction baby! $250 of sweetness. Good luck finding one.
