Well, my friend found a really cool feature of VMWare workstation 6. It has a built in VNC server. So leaving the VM up and running, you can head home, and using a VNC viewer, you can now connect up to the VM and start working.
That will be a nice feature to use, so whether I'm at home or on vacation, if I have internet and a VNC viewer, I can still get to my desktop and keep working. I'm not sure what flavor they use, but it would be nice if they allowed for blanking the monitor and mouse like UltraVNC does.
