It's... interesting when several former classmates join Signal on the same day. πŸ‘€

Do you or anyone you know want a 16-computer VGA + PS/2 KVM?

It's , though I think I only have 12 sets of cables for some reason. I believe it works, but I haven't honestly tested it in many years.

Yours for the cost of shipping from the US midwest.
