How To Keep Your Monitor 50 Feet Away From Your Box

October 20th, 2005 | by Mike |

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.

    I suppose one use would be to have your music\video server farm in the basement instead on the bookshelf next to your entertainment center. You’d just need a wireless remote like you get with Dish Satellite TV.

    And if you’re just exporting to a standard non-hi-def tv I don’t see why you’d need more than 800×600 resolution. Wikipedia:TV_Resolutions

    もちろんオフィス用ではなくても、バーバリーバッグ は仲間内でも個人でも便利に使いこなすことが出来ますし、購入することが出来ますので、バーバリーシャツを欲しいと思った人は企業の関係者や担当者ではなくても欲しいと思った人は見てみて、実際に触って見たければサンプルを借りて気に入ったものを購入してみてはいかがでしょうか。

    そんな時はバーバリーアウトレット などはどうでしょう。
    バーバリー財布 は何枚あっても困りません。
    主婦の人にとってはバーバリーシャツ のようなものですから、洗い替え用として何枚あっても良いでしょう。
