[OT] USB KVM switches

        And people ask me why I don't like USB keyboards (and it's not just because I've never found one that I like more than the IBM 'clickers') ;-)

        Granted, that could start a whole new argument. However, my position has always been "Hey, you've got a perfectly good dedicated keyboard port that's worked for decades. Why go to all the trouble to replace it?"

        Sorry I couldn't have been of more help, except to say hunt around on Greed-bay. Happy seeking.
