I read this topic like a good book!
Great work, Poul. Reminds me of some topic for Sensible Days 2007. I always hoped someone else would do sth. like that. You nailed it! :)

Edit:
That you categorize the joysticks is cool!
Btw, please edit my entry, because it s not (only) the PC Gravis. I am playing with the Amiga DB-9 version of it, at least for the last 2 years. Just delete the PC . ;)
