Hack Of The Day: Replace A Monitor With LogMeIn

LogMeIn is a great piece of code that lets you access your internet-connected computer from any computer on the planet. It can come in handy in many occasions. One use of it that most people hardly ever think of is to literally replace a computer screen. As a matter of fact, should your monitor or graphics card ever stop working, you will still be able to access your computer from another computer at home or from anywhere else in the world, even from your iPhone or iPad. This can be very practical should you need to grab some files off your broken down computer without going through the hassle of moving monitors around. It can even help you diagnose what's wrong with it. And of course, in case you are using a computer as a media server at home, you can just leave it on a shelf without worrying about hooking it up to a monitor as any other computer in the house can be used to access it.
