I'm just wondering if there is an app/prefpane to remember different tracking speeds for different mouses when you have a Macbook and are switching between mouses constantly?

Thanks for any suggestions.

According to this article, Steermouse will allow you to save different profiles on the mouses (among other things).

Build Profiles

One of the best features of Steermouse is the ability to have multiple profiles. This works well if you have multiple people using a mouse that all prefer different settings, if you have more than once mouse that you use on a regular basis, or if you would prefer to use different mouse settings for different tasks, workflows, games, etc.
