Mac Remote Desktop

I managed something very useful today: I can control the Macintosh in the office from my home! It works like this: First I use windows XP remote desktop to the computer in the office, which is on USC network. Then, through that computer, I use timpuktu pro (a file transfer software for macs and pcs) to remote desktop to the Macintosh inside the local network there (the mac is not visible outside the office). Timbuktu offers exactly the same as remote desktop: projects the desktop of the mac into the pc screen, and then windows remote desktop projects that screen into my home computer!
Why should I come to the office anymore?
