10.5: A useless hint to create infinitely mirrored screens
Authored by: Flooey on Dec 04, '07 11:21:52AM

This is a pretty common trick with any screen sharing system. Even in the case where the program prevents you from immediately connecting back, you can use a third machine as a middle man, and by connecting 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 1 get the same effect. In general, none of the machines there have enough context to know about the loop, so they can't prevent it.
