a. that works
b. ewwww ... that has to be the most painful thing on the eyes I've ever dealt
bit drawback: my monitors aren't the same ... one is 19", the other 19" Wide
my 19" W looks all stretched out :)
But, at least I know it does work, now just either have to replace one of my
or wait for a more 'split screen' dual head is available (ala Screen 0 vs
Screen 1) :(
