Yeah it's been a while... Hasn't been much to talk about...

Strike that.

There's been a lot to talk about as I've been super busy with stuff.

Danny's going well.
Work's going well.

But.. enough about that stuff... I'm here to talk about Synergy!

Yes Synergy... no not the typical definition... but Synergy!

It's a very nice app (all of less then 700k) that you run on multiple machines (PC, Mac, etc) that allows you to use one keyboard and mouse to control all of them.

As the auther calls it.. it's KM software... not KVM as it doesn't do anything with video.

You still need each individual box to have its own monitor, etc. But being able to move my mouse here and it ends up on my laptop right over there, is very sweet.

One of the big things that I love is that it copies the clipboard between machines as well. So I can copy something over here, and paste it over there.

It also works with games really well... surprisingly well.

Being able to move my mouse from the machine that has the game playing on it to my secondary machine running IRC is *really* nice. Havn't tried it with two games running... one on each machine. Of course, I'd need a secondary machine that could actually *run* the more modern games. That's on my list of things to do this year.

Well.. it's more of a "get a new primary machine so my current primary can become a secondary"... but I digress.

So anywho... If you've got more then one keyboard and/or mouse on your desk, this might be something you want to look into.

This looks exactly like what I was looking for. Thanks Spyke.
