I have a copy of Lateral Thinking, but haven't got very far in it.

What I have been reading a lot of is Management and the Computer of the Future, an early 60s lecture series on where computers were and should be going. I picked it up specifically because of the chapter on computers in the university, which is largely about programming education. There are some interesting discussions of it on Mark Guzdial's blog and in depth on Grand Text Auto.

anewuser: the owner of SEMO contacted me saying an interview with her was planned, and asked me if i'd like to suggest some questions (knowing that i was a fan.) so not all those questions are mine, about half of them i think.

Why can't I use a Wii Remote to control emulators? :(

On the PC, on the Wii, or what? It depends on the method of implementation used, as to whether or not the Wii controller can be used to control your emulator of choice. Have you heard of "Joy 2 Key"? That can convert Joystick inputs into a keyboard. I've actually typed messages (short, and broken) using my NGC gamepad. Maybe Joy 2 Key would work for you? I don't have a bluetooth adapter, otherwise I'd be using my Wii controller on my PC. It'd make my PC much more functional (since I pretty much only use it to watch movies, listen to music, and occasionally play a game on it). Doing a quick search, I found 3 different links that all look useful/interesting, regarding Joy 2 Key:

Joy 2 Key English version - I have this version, and I know I've used it. However, its version number is lower than that of the non-English version, so I'm pretty sure I use the non-English version most of the time.

Joy 2 Key Win7 instructions - I haven't used Joy 2 Key on my Win7 machine yet, so I had no idea that it might not work properly. This site gives instructions which might be useful (and a link to the higher version of Joy 2 Key).

Open Source Implementation of Joy 2 Key - I only very briefly looked at this, but as near as I can tell, someone is either working from an early version of Joy 2 Key, or they've re-written/rebuilt it for a more modern implementation. Give it a try, I guess. I've never seen it before, so I couldn't tell you what to expect.

Anyway, hopefully you can figure something out. I agree that it sucks that you can't use your Wii controller on emulators. Hopefully this helps. When I do (eventually) get a bluetooth adapter for my PC, I intend to get a Wii controller to go with it, and use that as my main input (instead of a mouse, I mean). We'll see if that ever happens.... I don't have enough money to get an adapter (and certainly not a controller, though I already have 2 for my Wii) at the moment, so it will be awhile before that happens. Let us know if you get it working. Mouser X over and out.

Thanks for the links, but I've been all over the Internet trying to figure out why my "HP Integrated Module with Bluetooth 2.1 Wireless Technology" does not properly sync with Wii Remotes. Oh sure, they pop up when I add a new device, but the LEDs flash forever. Or by some random luck I get LED1 and LED4 to light, but GlovePIE doesn't recognize any inputs.

I have issues, naturally. Looks like I'm in the market for a Bluetooth dongle.

And the BlueSoleil "stack" doesn't work, either.

Once again doing Ludum Dare this weekend. Probably won't go as all out as I usually try to (not that it shows).

$1.99 Bluetooth adapter + BlueSoleil = Success!

PunBB 1.2.23

...

Thanks to hcs for report.


Don't even ask how I ended up on PunBB page, I can't quite remember.

Either way, is that this hcs?

I don't think so, never heard of it. Sounds like it'd be right up my alley by the name, though.
