$ gett *.py                       # linux globs (upload)
$ gett *.py -s sharename          # upload file in the specific share
$ gett *.py -s sharename -t title # gives the title to the new share
$ gett --list                     # show list of shares
$ gett -d share1 share2 share3    # deletes the shares
