    Hi!

    I came across some (older) tutorials about how to connect the Wiimote to a pc and use it there as a mouse. As my computer is also connected to my LCD tv that sounded like something that might come in handy and I really like the feeling of using Opera on the Wii, unfortunately many of my favorite websites require a newer version of flash.

    After watching some demonstration videos when using the Wiimote on a pc, it seems to me that there it has a much longer delay when you move the pointer left/right up/down than on the Wii and I think this way it would be not so much fun using Firefox with it on a pc than using Opera on the Wii.
    The videos I found were however all about one year old, so I wonder if this is still the current status or if better solutions have been found.
    Is there a way to use the Wiimote on a computer with a "feeling" that is coming close to the one when using it on a Wii or just not yet?

    Thanks and greetings!
