OK....it was a while ago that i stumbled over an application on the web that allowed you to use a laptop as an external display from your mac...but over a network. i must stress that this was NOT a VNC type thing--i use and have that. i can only remember that the icon was something like a cinema display (i think) and that the video of demonstration was with a powerbook on the right and the guy was moving a spiderman hd video between the display on the left and the one on the right. if anyone has ANY idea what the f*** i am on about (!) then please write back. thanks in advance, Tom.
