I had a great time at the GRLUG potluck last night. Thanks again,
Casey, for letting us take over your garage!

Someone asked a question about disabling a device that had been
activated by udev, and I don't remember a conclusive answer being
reached. This interesting article [1] showed up in my feed reader
today, and it has a little information about udev. A little further
reading courtesy of the Arch Linux wiki [2] makes me think that
disabling the device after it has already been detected and running
would require a device-specific command. Now you could prevent it from
loading in the first place by using a udev rule, but I don't know that
you can use udev to actually cripple it afterwards.
