Windows 7: Very Large monitor for connection to 4 computers

Very Large monitor for connection to 4 computers

Hi all
I haven't seen something like this since mainframe days but what I would like is to be able to connect a SINGLE very large monitor to 4 different computers (at the same time) where the screen is divided into 4 (25% for each computer).

Is there "any such animal" or do I have to go down the multiple monitor route.

These type of terminals were actually quite common many years ago as IBM mainframe Operators consoles for running multiple machines -- of course in those days the terminals were text based and either monochopme or 4 coloured 3279 type devices.

Don't have any idea if they have such a thing; however, you might try contacting Matrox: they have specialized in controllers for the financial sector -- where strange configurations are the norm -- and just might have such a beast. (I realize that most of their variants are multi-monitor, but they might have something or might be able to provide direction - it's worth asking.)

Connection drops with large transfers
I noticed that when I try to copy over a 4.02GB file from my desktop to my laptop it goes for about 10-15 minutes and then stalls before telling me that the file destination/source no longer exists and cancels the transfer. But if I leave it alone they'll see each other in a few minutes time. This...
