So today I did heavy programming stuff in the X Window System (X Protocol Version 11) and SDL (particularly the event system) on Ubuntu Linux (in the GNU debugger), and some tinkering with development tools on Mac OS X 10.4.

I like my job. I get to do such random things.

It's an unspecified HID device; it comes with a driver that translates the signals into X Window Manager messages. I'm using a non-proprietary replacement for that driver that someone wrote. under Linux, the SDL event library can be instructed to pass these Window Manager messages along wrapped as SDL events. That's where I am bringing the signals into Torque.

Of course, there are many, many other ways it *could* be done....
