You're entirely missing the point.

Pi was working fine.

It still does work fine, in that it's functioning correctly as a file 
server to the tablets.

Bill Dudley knows Unix/Linux as well as anyone I've ever met.

However he found that he was suddenly unable to remotely log in the 
other day.

Thus we need to connect a display directly to the Pi.

We could spend a bunch of time trying to get a VGA working with it, or 
we could just get the right monitor in the first place -- one with an 
HDMI input.
