Lets screens on two different computers act as one

This program lets you use two screens on two different computers as if they were connected to the same computer. It opens a small (one pixel wide) window on the edge of your screen. Moving the pointer into this window triggers the program to take over your mouse and send mouse movements and keystrokes though the RFB protocol to a VNC server running on another machine. When the pointer is moved back towards the opposite edge on the other screen, the mouse is released again.
