Now we're talking. And when it's paired to such a device (e.g. a
netbook) then you might use it as a desktop enlarger. But please make

It's ready for use now. If you have a desktop and a laptop which are
both connected to a network, then you can start using your laptop as a
mouse and keyboard for your desktop right now. Just install quicksynergy
on your laptop and desktop. Set your desktop to connect to your laptop
and click use. On the laptop, set it to accept connections from the
desktop and click use.
Now, when you move your mouse pointer off the laptops screen, it will
continue onto the desktops screen. The keyboard is used on whichever
screen the mouse pointer is on. Real nice.
This would only have to be configured once per user of the big screen.
It would then be stored, and whenever you logged onto the big screen, it
would start trying to connect to your laptop.
