Mounting SMB file shares on WeTab

So I was just messing around with my device again and cool enough, cifs is enabled on the kernel, don't know if I should have known that or not but I'm glad it is either way. This means I can mount my file shares from another pc on my network and view the files that are on that server (videos, photos, documents...etc). So very quick here is how I did it:

sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt/ -o username=guest,password=xxx,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0777,dir_mode=0777

You can then run thunar from the terminal window and browse through your mounted file system or use the File Browser that comes with the system. In either case I found this pretty cool.
