    What I mean by call is to use it like a intercom system with video.

    RE: Supercomputer???
    Really the only thing that I can not figure out is is how would we make each monitor act as a seperate workstation but have them all on the same system so that the whole computer learns and you do not have to move data. I will try to come up with a drawing with what I am trying to say. [img size=359]http://www.linux.com/media/kunena/attachments/legacy/images/Screenshot-c80eb38d698575bea608106a994fdae1.png[/img]

    RE: Supercomputer???
    I will try to remember to post links. Thanks for telling me to do that. I did not think about doing that. Here is the lowes HDMI wall port http://www.lowes.com/pd_12783-60784-WP1011-WH-V1_0__?productId=1214163&Ntt=hdmi&pl=1¤tURL=%2Fpl__0__s%3FNtt%3Dhdmi And here is the Cable I saw @ Best Buy http://www.bestbuy.com/site/AudioQuest+-+Chocolate+3-2/7'+HDMI+Cable+-+Coffee/Black/9515802.p?id=1218123221012&skuId=9515802&cmp=RMX&ref=06&loc=01&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=9515802 If you google "HDMI ethernet" a lot of stuff comes up also.

    RE: AVG
    This is just a personal opinion but I would not recommend AVG anti-virus software to anyone. I had it on my windows xp desktop and it got infected. Let's just say, in the end I lost all my data, including a system program I had just finished setting up and all the school papers I had on it, and had to get a new hard drive. (and I was just web browsing like any of you would do)

    Sure, the first URL is what I tried to use as help and the second is the original software site. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynergyHowto http://synergy-foss.org/

    RE: Supercomputer???
    All this really got me thinking. I don't know about you, but when I think of clustering, I automatically think about using old computers and old technology. Then I said to myself what if we use some of the newer stuff that is becoming more popular today? Then a thought hit me. I remember seeing in Lowe's an HDMI kit that allows someone to hardwire the home with hdmi. And at Best Buy I remember seeing HDMI cables that carry not only audio and video but also ethernet. All we would need then is an HDMI monitor 15"-20" that has a built in web cam and a good quality mic (and speakers, of course). Then we could put one monitor in each room of the house wherever one wants one. The whole system would probably be in the basement (or storage closet if you do not have a basement). The system would be a cluster containing of 10 CPU's. The CPU's would have at least 10 GB of RAM and 20 TB of storage(anyone can change these. I just made them up) The whole system would have some sort of artificial inteligence system on it. The main computer would probably be based in the living room attached to the TV. Here we would have a web cam mounted on top of the TV, wireless keyboard and mouse, and a bluetooth headset. The only things that has me stumped is how would one hook all the HD monitors to the system and what type of OS would run this. Some software that would be cool to have on this system is something that would let you call one room from another room at the monitors. It would also be nice to run some third party software that only works (as far as I know) on Windows XP so that you could hook up a home automation system up to the system and so that one could hook up a security system up to the main system. Leave comments!!! Let me know about you ideas, and perhaps someone knows someone who would be able to finance such an experiment. ;-)

    Synergy
    Ok I have tried everything and I cannot get synergy to work for linux-to-linux or windows xp pro-to-linux. I have tried looking online for help but it is not helping. Can someone here help me out?
