I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with the logmein line of products, but I'm a fan of a few of them. Hamachi is one of my favorites. My company blocks traffic for messengers such as google talk, forcing you to use their jabber server to relay, which allows them to log everything you say and receive. Hamachi offers chat via encrypted VPN, which allows me to set up a small network of friends and converse without the worry of someone grabbing up plain-text convos and storing them up for review ammunition. However, as you'll soon see, Hamachi has a few other uses, too.

I came across an interesting article this morning which allows you to take advantage of Hamachi's VPN setup, teamed with its ability to Browse networked computers. Team up Hamachi with XBMC, the "award-winning" media center (available for Linux, OS X, Windows, and Xbox), and you've got a system capable of streaming media to your work box from home. :) Movies, music, whatever you've got, this should let you share it. Have a look at this tuto for more: http://brokenfloppy.com/2009/05/streaming-media-with-hamachi-and-xbmc/
