This episode is a quick software recommendation/introduction to Barrier. Barrier is a software KVM, forked from Synergy. It sends your keystrokes and mouse input over the network, so that you can share your input devices between computers.

Old school KVMs

Thank you for sharing. I remember taking apart old, mechanical KVM switches to clean the contacts for more reliable operation. I still have several electronic KVMs floating around, but haven's had the need in quite some time. I definitely need to look into using Barrier. Keep up the great work.
