Some notes on Input Director and alternatives: what about multiple platforms and mixing local plus remote access?

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/29

More than 10 years ago, I wrote about 7 screens; 3 computers; 1 keyboard/mouse to direct them all: Input Director and started with

At home, I have 7 screens on 3 computers on the same desk. That sounds like a clutter, but all these keyboards and mice hooked up to them add even more clutter. Until I found out about Input Direct…

In the mean time, I’ve mainly used a Mac with MacOS as a front-end to virtually logon to remote machines using both the internal display and one or two external monitors.

Especially when doing video (think Covid-19 and especially on-line meetings!) in addition to software development work, this is far from ideal.

So here are some things on my list of potential enhancements to this situation:

Some Pi-KVM v3 notes

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/25

Last year, I wrote about Low cost remote IP KVM and control, is it possible?, mentioned [Wayback/Archive.is] Pi-KVM – Open and cheap DIY IP-KVM on Raspberry Pi and pledged for the [Wayback – OpenSSH 8.0 release notes/Archive.is] Pi-KVM v3 kickstarter project.

From their updates a few notes and a few of my own on PoE, HDMI/VGA, video passthrough, and a short of shopping list.

First the entries from the PiKVM Kickstarter updates::

How to Configure Stack Overflow The Key Macropad? | Drop

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/20

In the past I joked about a Copy/Paste keyboard for Stack Overflow, and even Stack Overflow had an April 1st joke about it early 2021 (see below). Boy  was I surprised by now it actually has existed for more than half a year!

Thanks [Archive.is] Matthijs ter Woord for pointing my attention to this.

Drop actually has some nice keyboards. Now I wish they made an UltraNav one. Their selection is at [Wayback/Archive.is] Mechanical Keyboards | Recommended Products | Drop.

The process where The Key became reality: [Wayback/Archive.is] Can I actually buy a copy-paste keyboard like the Stack Overflow April Fool’s “The Key”? – Meta Stack Overflow

Jeff Geerling on Twitter: “I plug computers into my computers…” is indeed a PCIe KVM board based on a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/05/10

Last month, I wrote

Hopefully the picture below is the board of a PCIe KVM board based on a Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4 supporting Power over Ethernet (PoE). At least it seems to looking at the thread started by…

The thread was by Jeff Geerling on Twitter: “I plug computers into my computers…”.

Jeff followed up on this much sooner than I expected with [Wayback/Archive] Jeff Geerling on Twitter: “Hey look! That computer inside a computer thing is real now! It’s the PCIe version of the Blicube KVM: …”

At least it seems to looking at the thread started by [Wayback/Archive] Jeff Geerling on Twitter: “I plug computers into my computers… “:
