I know this sounds obvious but a 4 port KVM?

If you have multiple monitors and like it like that...
There was a project covering Nway "slide" - one mouse and 
keyboard with the mouse sliding between N monitors directing keyboard 
traffic to follow the mouse. Very fancy - dunno if they released
files yet and it was over a year ago I last looked.

I use a 2 port KVM dongle for my main home desktop and this works a 
treat - even with a longin KVM extended to that system are at one
en of the room and me the other. (Glass desks look much better
when there is nothing below but cables ;-)

If I ever get paid again, I may just need to upgrade to a 4 way myself.
Mind you if that happens, I will probably get one of these (half-joke)
