|I've got an inventive idea:
How's about a clicker item that is, in fact, just a shortcut to a network clicker item?
So, instead of navigating "Network > Powerbook (waity) > iTunes" I simply selected "Powerbook's iTunes" straight from my mac mini's clicker menu?
Is that even possible?
Also: I have an idea for an Azureus status clicker item, presenting simple torrent info from a remote machine and allowing suspension/resuming of all torrents.
I'd need to have applescript parse XML, or run a bash script to do it and return the results, but I figure it'd cut down on ARD use for those of us with a dedicated torrenting machine or whatever.
Oh, and a "what apps are running" item, which should be easy, but maybe not actually useful? Might be handy if you're watching something on your media centre mac, but frames start dropping and you suspect something is eating up CPU in the background...
Just to clarify: I'm only asking about the network thing, the other stuff I've not really started thinking about yet, but it should be easy enough...
