Multiplexing X connections

vncserver for X is soooo much better than winvnc. Because X is actually smart enough to let the vnc server know what's been repainted and such. Very fast! On Windows it can only guess.

End result: I can access now the same graphical screen on both my desktop or laptop. Open up gaim once... use it either in my chair on my big monitor & keyboard, or on my futon with my laptop sitting on my coffee table.

Think: screen -x, but for X. :P

Oh, shit, never got started on that linguistics homework yet! :-)
