Oh well, you solved that problem...let's invent some more.. ;)

The mouse would have to be connected to the link port, but AFAIK you
can't have both the Expander and another device connected to the link
port at the same time.

But the real problem is that I don't think a mouse would be very useful
in a calculator, at least if you consider the technical modifications
that would need to be done. There are much more interesting projects
around (IMHO).
