A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

No 360, but I have the controller!

Because I am a nerd and I want to develop some games using the XNA for the PC and the 360 when it comes out, I went down to the local GameStation and bought a cheap second hand Xbox 360 controller.

I have just been testing the programming model with it and all seems well.  I can sesne the pressure on the triggers and all that stuff using the XNA.

One thing that I did notice is that I couldn't install the Xbox 360 Controller Common driver for the Windows XP.  However I did find that XBCD drivers worked for me and it works with the XNA.  You can find the drivers here [http://xbcd360guide.50webs.com/]

I presume the download is okay, nothing scary has happened, although the design of the site doesn't inspire any confidence.
