Why is it that really smart guys that find out a cool new way to do something have zero skills or desire to make a decent website? Maybe a crappy site makes it seem like you are just too smart and you just don’t have time to waste on making a site for your creation, you must move on to that little cold fusion thing you have going in the basement. Either way, Doug Burbidge figured out how to take a VGA signal and send it over cat5 cable and he made a crappy site explaining how to do it.
According to his site he has achieved 800×600 resolution over 50 feet with his VGA to cat5 setup. That is pretty damn cool. Other than a neato video wall of monitors, I really can’t think of a use right now, but I’m sure there is something.
