raspberry pi and vnc

Not sure why I didn't do this before, but VNC is the low-cost option for accessing your Raspberry Pi. Most everyone uses TightVNC as the server, and on my Mac here in the office, VNC client is built right in to OS X, as well as a RealVNC plugin for the Chrome browser. But I'll use the java-based TightVNC jviewer because it supports ssh (those VNC passwords are easy to snoop).

Here's instructions on how to run TightVNC server at boot, no sense to reinvent the wheel (thank you to penguintutor.com), as it's everything you need to getting your RPi headless:
