KVM physical space problem?

Here’s a brilliant way to save all the room that a KVM switch and related cables take up.

KVM (Keyboard-Video-Mouse) switches are used when you have (for example) 2 PCs and only 1 keyboard, Monitor and Mouse. They allow you to share the use of them by simple hitting a button on the KVM switch or by a special key combination on your PC.

You can buy them quite cheap off Ebay, but I have found a better way to do it – and for free.

In comes Synergy – Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each using it’s own display. No additional hardware is required.

All that is required to use (once configured of course), is to move the mouse off one screen and then it appears on the other. Keyboard control is then assigned to the other PC where your mouse is located.

Synergy is an open source project, and can be found here.

A cheap insurance is not a means of working towards debt management. For debt relief, get rid of such deals. Use online bank for utility payments, and avoid banks in or close to malls and supermarkets.
