So Many Screens!

Synergy (an open source project) looks awesome! (Thanks Matt!)

I think I’ll definitely try this out with my laptop. How much simpler would it be to just all of a sudden be working on it with the same keyboard and mouse? And how about that multi-screen setup? Wow…

…share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware.

Update: That didn’t take long at all. 10 minutes later, I’m messing with both systems back without a hitch (both Windows XP, using Synergy 1.1.7). The only thing is that the command prompt is always in the taskbar – nevermind. Change “Logging Level” to “Error” and it’ll go away unless there’s problems.
