every time i go back to digg, i wind up having to avoid it again. i haven't looked at it in months. the comments on digg always sound so juvenile, it's hard to believe the average age is in the adult range supposedly. also not so sure about the wisdom of crowds. seems like masses of people tend to fall into mass stupidity more often than not (witness the typical digg comments).

Excellent! I work over in JF5, but happened to wander through JF1 today in time to see it up on the TV. Had to do a double-take :)

I've thought about what it would take to take over one of the little PCs. I think Remote Desktop is out, because it blanks the physical display when you connect remotely, which would be a) a dead giveaway, and b) not let you do live shennanigans like typing messages to the people standing in front of the TV. :-) Here's how I would do it, IF I were going to try (which I'm not, and haven't!): 1. Copy a VNC server to a USB drive 2. Plug it in, use a USB keyboard to install/configure/hide the VNC server, and note the IP address of the machine. 3. ??? 4. Profit! Think of it - you could remote fix all of those errors, run cool, useful, and interesting visualizations like this, or even get really fancy and put up some kind of jukebox/web interface to let people choose/vote for what they want to see. The possibilities are endless, although I hate to think of the freakout that would happen if they found a surreptitious VNC server running on one of these machines... :-)

you need to get an account on the machines that the screens run on, and then have a field day.
