Ummm good question.... you can get super duper long cables for mouse and keyboards...
saw them at Bowlers on trafford park a while back.... not the best idea.

wireless would be miles better :)

but most Wireless mouse and keyboard combos, are only good for 5-9 metres at most.... thats in a straight line.

so through the floor etc... nope :(

Get a USB mouse/keyboard system (Win XP ?) , and extend the USB (three wires only) to run downstairs.

Any ideas on how to stop the other half from yelling at you to stop typing late into the night ?
I have considered making the bedroom airtight, and using a vaccuum pump.;)
