>> I did this the other way around over a year ago at an Ubuntu Developer

>> We plugged an ethernet cable between his laptop and mine, then I ran

>> Doing it the other way round should be just as trivial. You can also

>> signal into an 'ad-hoc' one, that others can connect to.
>> Also, apologies for my earlier top-post, as I was using gmail on my
>> android phone :(
