My PowerBook is on the sofa in my lounge. I, however, am sitting in my office, working on the old battleaxe of a desktop Mac. At some point, I realise that I want to send a text message to a friend. While my phone is to hand, I find it simpler to:
- VNC screen-share to my PowerBook next door, over WiFi.
- Bluetooth-pair back through the wall to my mobile phone.
- Type the message on the PowerBook, via Address Book and the screen sharing thing.
Is it possible for wireless networks to become tangled? Should I even worry, given that this felt like a perfectly natural chain of events? Or am I just a l33t M4cus3r?
Or maybe I should simply redouble my efforts to find the USB Bluetooth dongle for the Power Mac. Or call someone with, you know, voice.

What are you using for VNC screen sharing? I looked at it but never got further than that.
(This is a cry for help (: )
[added here for completeness]
I use OSXvnc as the server and the bafflingly-named Chicken of the VNC as the client. Rendezvous goodness, decent performance, not too many baffling settings.
