MultiMonitorVS, originally uploaded by DavidChristiansen. Andrew Rimmer mentioned on twitter that he wanted to make more efficient use of his multiple monitors and I thought I would share how I have managed to achieve an effective way to work with two or more monitors.

Well it's new to me... http://webmessenger.msn.com Just discovered webmessenger from MSN which provides web based instant messaging to those unfortunate enough to be on a PC without the windows app, or like me, work for an tightly firewalled corporation.
