Oooo, luxury. More than half the time, I need screen
caps from another system (usually an OS that I
couldn't install on my workstation even if I
wanted to... or was permitted to) located at the
other end of the building, or on another floor.

I can't really use Exceed or some other remote
graphic login, because the required equipment is
attached to the other system, and I need to
manipulate it. I tried that once, and was asked
to please stop running in the halls, and on the
stairs. Timeouts, you know.
