Awesome is awesome!

I started my new job today, and worked all day on my little laptop (fujitsu P1610) with its 9in screen, and enough was enough, I had a 20in 1600x1200 monitor in the other room and wanted to use it, so tonight I went and had some fun with xrandr, and had my self a two headed display, only problem was that my window manager wmii saw it as one large display. Now wmii is a titled window manager so it is very problematic when it does not know when one screen starts and ends (I mean for petes sake I HAD to scale the window to fit the screen). So I hit the internets to see if there was a way for wmii to understand multiple displays, on the way I got distracted...

Awesome was the distraction, for the web said it understood xrandr multiple head displays. I had it installed so I gave it a whirl, and low and behold it works, just like that, I make my composite display and I get two displays, with their own tags and tiles. Well it looks like I will have to figure out how to do everything else now, but I think I have made the switch.
