I'd have to use two computers, though, right? Or is there another solution for this? Like if you could log off one windows account and log on another without the first one becoming inactive or something. Anyway, nice work and thanks for sharing.
Actually, it's possible to do this with one computer, but it might not work with all computers. As you can see in the attachment screenshot, I was able to force Windows 7 to add another display using 'detect'. You can then set the resolution to portrait 600x800, and modify the offset x,y in the python script. It's a little troublesome, but if you can get it to work, it's quite nice.
