hack: remoteShellFM - Control shell-fm over ssh somewhere

Description: This bash-script allows you to run shell-fm on another computer on your or some-one else network and control it over ssh.

Get it: remoteShellFm (dropbox)

Usefulness: When you have for example a linutop connected to your home-cinema and putty on your phone and brings someone home after a night out on the pubs and want them to feel comfortable with their own music ;)
