Ben writes – “I’ve now got my music collection ripped onto a server PC. A new problem then became apparent: when the phone rang, I had to find (a) the remote for the Squeezebox to pause it, and then (b) the phone to read the incoming number and see who’s calling. When making a call, we needed to pause the Squeezebox first. In both cases, we needed to remember to unpause the music again afterwards. Surely technology could help here… I’ve put a system together which sits between the phone line and the SlimServer.” [via] – Link.
