This is why I love my job.

I'm digging through the source code to Descent 3, and find there's a
command line option in the Windows-specific portion called, "-rocknride".

What the hell is that?

I start looking into what this command activates, and it appears to be a
game device like a force-feedback joystick or something. Did a websearch
and came up with (surprise)

Go look at what's there.  We're getting one of those on loan for the next
few weeks, so I can implement support for it in Descent 3. Then, we're
gonna see about loading it (compressed air tanks and all), into Andy's
truck to bring it to E3 with us. I'm either going to have a lot of fun,
or lose an eye, or both.
