cuecat).  This looks custom enough that it might have a custom driver, so I=

or calling them to see.

A wireless mouse is not going to be any different in interface (unless you =

(eg: a wireless w/ps/2 connector acts the same as a wired ps/2 (likely more=
 jittery)) and=20

I personally have a gyration keyboard & mouse (USB HID) and the mouse is am=

when it runs low on charge, generally 3 days of not charging(In other words=

to put it in the charger)), and I know people with Logitech cordless mice, =

fine (skip a bit, but every wireless mouse I have used exception above, hav=
