Poor man’s KVM

I have two PCs but one keyboard and monitor. Rather than shell out for a KVM, I plugged each PC into a different port on the monitor, and use the menu to switch between them.

For the keyboard I put a USB extension lying on the floor near the main PC, and I just get on my knees to swop the keyboard between it and the back of the main PC.

I don’t need to do this too often, so it works quite well enough for me. 🙂
