<3 X, PulseAudio, and DAAP

So, right now, I'm sitting at my comp listening to Norah Jones. But this isn't like any other music-listening time. Right now, I'm:

  1. Logged into a lab computer via XDMCP: I could've used VNC, but that would've required someone to be logged-in on the lab comp.

  2. Using my laptop's PulseAudio as the lab computer's default PulseAudio sink: This makes the lab computer's PulseAudio send all sound to my laptop's PulseAudio by default.

  3. Connected to my laptop's DAAP share from the lab computer's Rhythmbox: The music on my laptop becomes accessible from the lab computer's Rhythmbox.

This setup results in me playing Norah Jones on the lab computer, and listening to it here :)
