Hi Oluf,

and thank you very much for your kind offer! And all though I don't have any 
problems with begging publicly I think I have my needs covered for now with 
the joystick-object, at least regarding my logitech-gamepad :)
Now the Wii-remote that's a completely different story, so if you think that 
you current max external for PD might work then I would love to give it a go 
here on my 2 windows boxes, if it's not too much trouble for you!

Any other options on getting in tapping in on the Wii-Remote from pd are 
very welcome, also if Linux is the only option.
