July 20th 2008 - Rewrite
With the new Infoseek database v12.5, a new index has been created, including everything added or corrected in the past 5 years - we're now at 511 devices!
Special precautions were made not to include the types Cables, Computers and common Joysticks, some of which slipped through on earlier updates.
The Source field has gone (as this information is already provided by Infoseek anyway - a year field was added instead), but a new Type field was added.
Many new devices were identified in the SPEX database by Jim Grimwood. All of them stand to be added shortly.

February 15th 2003 - Index cleanup
