Direct Web Remoting

Direct Web Remoting (DWR)

(From the site...)

DWR allows Javascript in a browser to interact with Java on a server and helps you manipulate web pages with the results.

DWR works by dynamically generating Javascript based on Java classes. The code does some Ajax magic to make it feel like the execution is happening on the browser, but in reality the server is executing the code and DWR is marshalling the data back and forwards.

Synergy

Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

I've been using this at work now for a few months between my Linux and Windows box. This has been a great little utility. 1 mouse, 1 keyboard, 2 systems! Synergy is easy to setup as well!
