Hi Phil,

Forgive me for completely ignoring your request for info on a KVM.  It
annoys the heck out of me when people answer questions I didn't ask so
I apologize in advance for pretty much doing just that (can you tell I
want to cover my butt here?)

Is there any way you can swap out the fans?  This is probably an order
of magnitude cheaper than buying a KVM system.  Maybe even put a
potentiometer in line to so you can adjust the fan speed, or perhaps
just get another pc (also probably significantly cheaper than buying
an IP based KVM extender).

Sorry for contributing to the noise if you already though about this,
