    Synergy is a program that I've come to swear by.

    I have a desktop machine and a laptop that I run around town with, but when I'm not running around, my laptop is raised up so that it's not as strenuous on my eyes. Only problem is, now my keyboard and touch pad are out of reach!

    So this is where Synergy, available at http://synergy2.sourceforge.net/ comes into the picture. It shares one keyboard and mouse amongst multiple computers, and it even works on Windows, Linux and Macintoshes!

    The most useful feature I find it provides however, is sharing the clipboard between your computers. Copy a link from your mail client on your laptop, and paste it in your browser on your desktop for example! Very handy!

    Information about installing and configuring it can be found on that page in the left-hand menus.
