That's a big problem indeed. But on the other hand, most people can make a calc<>PC link cable, and that is much more complex than this.
I found an old PS/2 mouse and keyboard that both should still work. On the downside, I can't find my USB>PS/2 adapter, and I also just realized that it would be much better if I could get a female PS/2 connector, to which I could connect both the mouse and the keyboard easily. I have an old PC at my parent's place that I could rip one out. I'll give that a try this weekend, if I have the time because I have a lot of plans for the weekend...
I'll ask around to see if anyone can miss a connector in my flat, but I don't expect to find much. How do you connect your hardware? Have you stripped the cable from the connector?
Edit: Oh, and Ben, if you want to spread mouse/keyboard compatibility in more ways than just the API, you should come pull some strings over here
, it's not a shell, but it's close enough
