Well, I've been busy with a few things, new job and a 2hr
total driving time to/from work unfortunately can really
take energy out of me, which means development on sdlpl has
slowed, need some time of to cocentrate on *real* coding.
And trips to Brighton with obliterates the week end.
But anyway, enough of the self pity and moaning, onto the

I have also added highly unsupported Joystick code, but
alas I cant get my linux joysitck driver working, wah...
The Corruptor has asked my to implement a IK+ style ball
bouncing pattern generator, which I have happily takeup

little to no physics calcs in perl, yet again, perl IS
glue, of the
super quick setting variety.
Anyway, I'm supposed to be working from home today, petrol
