Yes, strange as it may seem, and I have taken some flak for admitting it, I use a J-stick. However, I also use it in an unconventional way. In my right mit is a Kensington pro tracball to mouselook and fire. In the left corner, a Logitech 3D Extreme joystick to move, alt fire, switch weapons, jump, translocate, ect.. You can see from my example that the major advantage is all the programable funtions that are very accessible w/o taking my eyes off the monitor to look at the KB. To me a j-stick sucks for aiming and mouselooking, but I bought one and hardheaded me was determined to find a use for it. So, there you go... - R
