Synergy. Control multiple computers with one keyboard and mouse

It's inevitable. Eventually you will end up with more than one computer. If you were smart enough to hold on to the old one, here is a way you can now use both, or 3 or 4, with one keyboard and mouse. This tutorial is done on Vectorlinux using the Quicksynergy front end, but Synergy itself will run on Mac, Windows as well as all Linux flavors. As usual, I've captured it all on video and put it up on Youtube.

Ipv6 readiness

Posted 03-10-2012 at 11:03 PM by Skaperen

Ipv6 is coming. Are you ready for it?

I have no idea when IPv4 exhaustion will reach the point where you have to use IPv6. You have IPv4 now, and no doubt virtually all ISPs will keep people on IPv4 in some way (even if they have to use NAT) much like cable TV companies are providing at least some means for analog TVs to work (with boxes as the convert their TV systems over to all digital).
