This is a crappy thing to happen. Before I moved into where I am at I spent the weekend with my two lady friends here. I've known them for years now and we all are great friends. But anyway, I came over and I was using their laptop and TightVNC to look after my pc's. My sigrig locked up and although I could still log into the 2ndary system I could do nothing about the 1st one. So I came over here Friday at about 4pm and went back home to restart my sigrig about 2am. I lost over 10 hours of f@h waiting until the next day.
And although I have everything setup to control the 2nd system from the 1st, I don't have the permissions or anything to use the 2nd to control the 1st system. I have it this way cause of how my setup is right now. To turn off or reboot my small folder all I have to do is reach over 2 feet and push a button, it is that easy. Or go with VNC and hit the reboot button on the remote desktop. I should set things up to do the same but I am normally home so it seemed to be too much trouble.
