Another crazy question...

Can the library be restricted based on the client
requesting the information? I'd like to put one of
these little gems (squeezebox) in my daughter's room
to function as an alarm clock, but also so she can
play the music she likes. I'd like to prevent her
from being able to browse everything. For instance,
I have some Sam Kinison and George Carlin that is a
little too adult for her (she's 8), but I like to
occasionally listen to Sam when I'm waking up in the
morning.

I looked all over the server settings today to see if
there was a special access control list that let some
content be available to some, but not all the clients.
I say clients because I would think this feature
could be useful in the sb as well as any
computer-based players.

Hi Paul,

Its not available yet, but there is an enhancement request filed to have the
abaility to mark songs as explicit.
