Best. Remote. Ever.
So, we have that one computer hooked up to the TV in the lounge so we can watch (and listen to) stuff on it. Well, the problem is that the network cable is only long enough to get the computer behind the TV, and the cord for the mouse and keyboard only reach so far, so you have to sit on the floor right in front of the TV in order to queue up movies, like they did back in medieval times.
Somebody gets the idea to install VNC on the computer, and with wireless in the lounge, I can sit up on the couch with my laptop and control it completely.
Ain’t technology cool!
