I worked on a dumb terminal earlier this week.  It didn't have a mouse but
there was a mouse port and when I asked the client about it he said yes it
supported a mouse.  Then the topic switched to something else so I can't add
more information.  

This is the sort of thing that makes me keep asking about enhancing the
green screen.  I think that we have gotten so caught up in tradition and
trivia that we've not exploited new hardware and software that would
simplify green screen applications and make user training a lot simpler.

Unfortunately, the only way I have figured out how to attack a mouse to a
dumb
terminal is with Velcro. [g]
