RS232 or Parallel port based keyboards and joysticks

 I usually use my laptop as a RS232 terminal. With a
little software, you can even emulate a parallel keyboard
from the printer port.
 Joysticks are a completely different issue. Some Joysticks
are digital while others are analog. Most that I know of
don't connect to RS232.
