Yes, why not. If I recall correctly, there are some handshake lines missing
too. Meaning that it's functionality is more or less limited to serial mice ;-)

A project for _after_ my holidays is an refurbish of a pc-mouse to an atari
mouse. Thomas once posted a kind of how-to quite a while ago. I don't like
to do this the easy way (like Julian :-).

PS: It won't rain in Belgium for the next 2 or 3 weeks - I'm going on holiday
near the river Semois ;-))
