Consolidated two DB25 ports down to just one

This morning I consolidated the two DB25 connectors I had on the rev 2 design down to just one by adding a relay. This should free up space on the PCB and also make it easier for our primary persona to figure out where to plug his cable into when he is looking at the PCB (now there will only be one place his cable will fit into whereas before there was two).

The next challenge is figuring out how to control the relay since we are out of AVR pins.
