Add a Second Monitor in Minutes

Thought I'd post something about a good thing related to computers for a change.

The keyboard part of Lena's ASUS T100 laptop bit the dust, so she's getting a new one, and I get the screen/Tablet part of her T100.

It works great as a asecond monitor.



In that photo I'm writing a scene in my next book that involves describing a bomb squad member's outfit. I can put up pictures on the second monitor as I write.

The software that lets me do that is free and found at ShareMouse.com. I simply install it on the two computers (one can be a mac) and I'm all set.
