Journal Journal: MaSheD | What to do next...

I recently developed a python script that allows me to execute commands remotely on my machine. Say for example, if I was on Mars and wanted to encode a movie stored on my home computer, I could simply send an email to myself and a script running on my computer will parse the email and do the required stuff. This is particularly useful, if your machine is behind a firewall that has no access to ports that ssh, vnc etc use (basically for use in an office environment).
The reason I'm posting this is because, I have developed an initial working version and am looking for direction. I am not sure what to add to it next. I don't know if I am posting this at the right place. My python skills are limited so I am also looking for suggestions on how to improve the code. All slashdotters are welcome to contribute to this project .
