Hi -- yes, I used to work at Microsoft Game Studios but I
don't know Bill G. :) But, yes, they do donate a lot of money
but I'm not sure about scholarships. Wouldn't hurt to try!

Yeah, the 360 does only use wireless controllers. I asked some
of my old colleagues at MS Games and they are asking around to
see if they know of any accessible controllers in the works.

these are mediocre times and people are 
losing hope. it's hard for many people 
to believe that there are extraordinary 
things inside themselves, as well as 
others. i hope you can keep an open
