Another goon busted my balls about it earlier today, so I installed electric sheep on both systems. Grabbing a 2 gb starter pack right now since apparently the firewall at work hates everything I want to do on the network (SSH to home ). drat SOX compliance.

SOX compliance? NEC monitors? HP hardware? Generic cube? I bet we work for the same company.

Not to mention the Cisco phones.

I love that screensaver too but be careful, that thing seriously heats up your graphics card. I stopped using it after it regularly sent my fans into leaf blower mode. It doesn't seem to throttle its frame rate so it will just go full tilt when it runs.

I would like to have it synchronized across all the monitors, but there isn't a good way to do it. That's two computers, dual monitors with each system, and InputDirector so I can use one mouse and keyboard for both of them.

nope. It doesn't work because of the types of games we play and costs. The kind of MMO market that runs in korea doesn't exist here, and to actually be able to pay employees are costs are far higher. The place I helped runs going rate was 4 times what they would charge at a typical PC bang per hour, and it still wasn't enough. Unless you can sustain near high capacity, have a secondary income source, or somehow are in an area with very low costs for the location there isn't enough money in it.

Companies here also try to enforce licensing schemes that are prohibitively expensive and reoccurring.
