It started with the desire to have voicemail messages emailed for access when abroad.
Came across Ovolab's Phlink (ovolab.com/phlink) and Phlink Web Access (jctcode.com/phwa).
Alas, woman (at least mine) prefer an old-fashion answering machines in stead of using a mouse and a screen.
Besides, my Macmini server is headless.
Imagine the Squeezebox could be used instead...
Coming home, look at the Squeezebox's display and see that there are "5 new messages".
Then pressing a key on the remote to display new messages details: date, time and tel. number scrolling over its screen.
Select a message and press Play to listen to that message.
Or search on date, name or tel. number.
Browse to that other message recorded back in 2005 or see all the messages from your boss to listen to them again.
And when finished select that playlist which is on your server.
I must be dreaming.....or?

misterhouse.sourceforge.net = open source home automation in Perl. I'm sure it can be done but you've got to be the programming type. Looking forward to seeing your plugin :)

Oeps, that includes way more than what I need.
Had a look at the slimdevices plugins section and it looks like it should be possible.
Will have to learn Perl to start with....

Not really what I'm looking for.
Besides, I live in The Netherlands.
Thanks anyway Radish.
