Hate it. Hate the way it fits my hand. I still haven't found my good Wico
ones (the ones with the long red stick). I might just see about heading up
to storage, yet again, this weekend to look. At least it shoudl be a lot
cooler up there as the weather has improved.
After playing Overloard/Supremacy on the C64, I really want to get my A500
back out :^) The interesting thing is, that game felt faster on my C64 than
the PC version ever did on my 386sx/16 and 486dx/33!

You loose the feedback and just think about your hand getting bumped by
someone (or even sneezing).

No idea, haven't looked into either. I do rather like the one I have for
the Atari 5200 :^)
