Dumb terminals and cybercafe's

I have a feeling that they are PC's but they are just well hidden and locked away. Think of the risk of Mr unknown coming into your cafe with a virus on a disk or CD, no thanks ;-)

What do you actually want to do at home?

I know you can run dumb terminals which will boot off of a server, but I would guess this would be expensive, but fun to set up none the less.

Give me some more info and lets see what we can do.

Cheers

How far away is the PC from the monitor/keyboard?

If less than 3 meters just get a monitor, keyboard and mouse extension cable from your local PC shop/store e.g..

monitor extension 3m

Kbd or mouse extension 3m - get 2 of these

With the above you should get 4 -> 5 meters of cable to play with.
