I think the KVM devices will be the answer!

The compilation is taking place on a server elsewhere but I still need to use my work laptop as the portal into everything I do for work.

I've updated the post description with some more details.

I often have tasks that run on my laptop and take 1-2 hours to compile. Once the task is complete I have to perform a few actions and send...

This looks very promising. I'll have to check if my laptop supports Thunderbolt 3. Edit: $1099.99 for a 30m cable :o

I expect that remote desktop software will be blocked by IT (work laptop).
06/11/2021 - 22:29

Do you have a photo of it on the easel? I'm keen to see how it looks.

Seems to be about $1500 in Land Tax for a home valued at $700k. Tax deductible though. I'll add it to the spreadsheet.

Thanks for the advice. I have updated my spreadsheet.
