Cool - could do with a USB optical mouse rather than the old-skool ball mouse I'm using

You can use either of these to connect a USB mouse as long as it supports the PS/2 protocols. "http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/catalog/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=adamse"
I have both and they work great with the optical USB mice I have.

Is a bigbox version in the works? I use my Kinesis on the rapidroad but it has some limitations compared to a keyboard on the native keyboard port. :-)

What would be really good is an auto switcher or something that allows two joysticks and mouse to be connected.

These work well:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Internal...item1c1ee2d4da

I have 3 and they allow two joystick and a mouse and switch between so no need to swap cables. But if a cleaner design could be done I would be in :-)
