But usb and the db9 joysticks are powered directly from the 5v source. So attached usb peripherals and db9 joysticks that use the 5v (e.g. for auto fire) may get damaged.

I was showing my MiST to friends and must have inadvertently put too much pressure on the cable, and it lifted the part off the board.
I would like to put a barrel connector, but I don't have the machinery to drill the hole in the case. Maybe I can get one of those transparent cases fron Lotharek, but I do prefer having an enclosure, and there is no space for MIDI.
Any ideas for alternative cases? Or would soldering an USB cable be easy enough?
