    Connecting 2 mice?
    Actually, I'd like to have a mouse and a tablet connected and functioning at the same time, is there any way to do this??

    edit> both work while connected, but I would like them split into two seperate cursors.

    Thanks
    Luke

    Yes, you can only have one cursor.

    OK, since I've been poking around a bit on the net, as far as OSX goes you are correct. It is unfortunate because I found a video of 2 cursers being used simultaniously (sp?) on a Windows computer. So it can be done, it just hasn't been done on a Mac yet.

    Thanks for the responses.

    Yes, more than likely the Windows one was using some remote access software. The win32 API only supports one cursor, as does the X specification (for X11 and X.org) and Mac OS X.

    Out of curiosity, what is wrong with just having one cursor?
