Is there already a way to automatically have the Slimserver app play a small MP3 file every time the Squeezebox is powered up??

Sometimes I may be remotely accessing the server via Pocket PC or a desktop PC in a distant corner of the house and thought it would be kind of handy (almost neat) if the system could play a small announce MP3 file just to confirm all systems are up and running ... like "Welcome! SqueezeBox now online!" .. hehehehe :))

Any thoughts ????

This is a good idea, but there's no facility for it now.

Maybe somebody could put together a plugin for it?
