@Hedley, you designed the mouse? Wow! Did you design any other Commodore hardware as well?
I've since looked you up. Learning that you were on the Amiga 3000 design team gave me chills, in a very good way. We are very fortunate to have you here!

I designed the 1351. It was a fun hack. Out of it I got my first patent (for the method it uses to communicate 2 7-bit values from the mouse to the pot registers every video frame), my first custom chip (okay, a 252 gate gate-array, but still) and my first trip to Hong Kong out of the deal. And here we are 30 years later and you have a brand new one. Wow. Your post made me happy. Thanks.
Thank you very much, sir, as I got a lot of use out of mine and in fact still have the same one I bought new back in those days.
