Ha-ha-ha..

OK, so, long story short, both me and my flatmate got far too fascinated with playing around with the insides of the MS Sidewinder 3D Pro and seeing what we could do to them.

Does anyone have any good URLs for interesting uses of the Sidewinders optical gear? I have found a million different sites on building sticks using pots, and modifying other kinds of joysticks to be optical/digital controlled on axis, but nothing so far on what the Sidewinders gear can be wired to do [other than interesting remote/tilt style sticks].

Anyone have any good sites on deconstructing a Sidewinder for nefarious purposes?
