    Introduction:

    My plan was to add another machine to my network and use a KVM switch to switch between them. The complication was I wanted to stick with my USB mouse and most KVM switches only use either PS2 or USB. I could always use the converter that came with the mouse and use it as a PS2 device but that would mean having to use a refresh rate accelerator to boost the response time as the smooth scrolling and instantaneous response times of USB spoilt me.

    So in all my wisdom I decided to opt for the USB KVM switch, figuring that it would be easier to get a converter for the keyboard and leave the mouse USB. Did I mention I didn't want to change the keyboard since I like the split/natural design?
