Yeah, that's one thing I like about the Wii.... They even let you disable the Gamecube controller rumble packs as well (I prefer to use the Gamecube controllers rather than the derpy Wii-motes, but that's and entirely different topic). What I usually end up doing is just taking the offending PS-3 controllers (or to be more accurate, off-brand controllers) out to my work bench, disassembling said controller, carefully removing the rumble motors (I AM a Mil-spec certified electronics technician after all) and re-assembling them: Problem solved, but more work than should be required, IMO.
I'm also in the process of cleaning out my car today (insert ominous organ music and dramatic thunder), and have it pretty much presentable. I managed to find about $2.50 or so in change under the seats, and a pin bearing the coat of arms of the Japanese Defense Force Guided Missile Destroyer, Hatakaze
that I thought I'd lost at least 4 years ago. Finding said pin made my day because I was given it by one of the sailors from the Hatakaze
who was on board as part of a crew-swap during joint training exercises in 2003, and I was really sad when I thought it had come off my jacket somewhere outside and was lost forever.
Anyways, I still have to rinse out all the soda bottles that were in the back and get them ready for recycling pick up on Monday.
