    If you regularly mend your friends/relatives pc's

    then you have to get one of these.....

    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=46424

    Moby-Dick sugested it to me ages ago..and Agent too I think .....

    one monitor....one keyboard...one mouse....doesn't need a power supply....

    and plug in two PCs...

    boot them up whenever you want and just swap between them...am defragging one PC RIGHT NOW while on here....both different resolutions (it remembers them)

    And cos its a BOX with switches, not a cable that needs you to hit a combo of keystrokes to swap over, things like Cntrl C for copy (you DOS boys are gonna tell me thats wrong now huh ) still works

    £18.79 inc VAT.

    And it blumin well works too

    God I love toys does it show ?

    Damn that's so cheap I'll buy one next time I get something off ebuyer.

    However, I have a spare monitor so it's never really been a problem servicing PC's for people. In fact, I usually go to them - I'm king of service in my area, lol.

    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();

    There's a simple solution if you have dual monitor. Ebuyer sell a USB switch. Get it and a USB hub, then plug your devices into the hub as follows:

    Code:
    [USB Mouse]-----+                           +--[Computer A]
                    |                           |
    [USB Keyboard]--+--[USB Hub]--[USB Switch]--+
                    |                           |
    [USB Kettle?]---+                           +--[Computer B]
    Et voila, a very cheap KVM solution for anyone with a USB mouse/keyboard.
