Hi Scott,

Thanks for the nice comments which make me even more suffer because I
have to wait one or two weeks more until my gadget is supposed to arrive

one question to the community: normally you can't switch easy between
normal USB mode, i.e. a host is talking to a USB device, and
host-to-host mode where two computers are talking to each other; the USB
FAQ even warns not to connecting two computers without any kind of USB
bridge, because this could damage the computers; see here:

how is this electrically organised in the GTA02 that I could just use a gender
changer to switch between host-to-host mode or host-to-device mode?
