Yesterday was teh suck. I managed to be late for two midterms, do horrible on both of them, and I was less than awesome in my immediacy object exercise. In retrospect, I guess that was a dumb object exercise for me to pick since I lose things so often I don't care anymore.|
There are lots of stuff on my plate for the next few days. Major ReppertFactor work needs to be done. Two labs are due soon. One is in C and requires threads, mutexes, and conditional variables, while the other is in Java and requires threads and sockets. Since I have never done concurrent programming before, this should be interesting to say the least. I think there are some papers that I should start on too. Oh, and the LJ party on Saturday. Doh.
I love not having to go in until 10:40 today. 8:40's are my bane.
I met Sir Andrew James Tosh III a few days ago. He convinced one of Aymon's friends that he was a knight. "Oh, where's your armor?" Ha.
Lately I have been using vnc along with cgywin's ssh server. I did this during the summer with Linux, but not with Windows. All in all, it's a nice experience. My only complaint is that you don't get a seperate "session" when using vnc with windows. I thought it was cool how the linux implementation made a session seperate from the one currently running on the desktop. I suppose they did whatever was easier for either operating system. I think Terminal Services or whatever it's called works the same way.
I've had this cough for a few weeks. Am I dying?
I think djrust is going to start working on some online Temple book exchange. That could be interesting to work on.
I keep on going back and forth between feeling very content to feeling overwhelmed and frustrated with this semester. Hm.
BTW, I think you mean "Knight," not "night." If he turned into the night, that would be totally awesome yet utterly impossible and super fucked up at the same time.
I think it's safe to say,

Sharing an existing X session with VNC in Linux/Unix
Check out x0rfbserver to share an existing X11 session via VNC.

Re: Sharing an existing X session with VNC in Linux/Unix
Interesting. Thanks for the heads up. :)
Have you seen anything that provides the functionality the Linux/X VNC server gives for Windows? With Linux, when you connect in, you aren't sending DISPLAY:0 over the network. Instead you have a session which isn't connected to a physical display. I haven't been able to find anything that lets you do something similar under Windows...
Of course, that might be a limitation of Windows, since it wasn't really designed to be networked from the ground up like how the X protocol was.
(I imagine cgywin's port of X could do what I want, but that has it's own set of limitations. I wouldn't be able to export non-cgywin programs, and even running X locally is ridiculously slow at this point!)
