I have spent years trying to convince people that I can help them do
useful things with their computers and they ignore me.

Recently I set up a multimedia playing Linux machine at a local business
and integrated it with their Asterisk phone system so they can start and
stop playback and adjust the sound volume by dialing extensions on their
phones. They dial 86nn (86=VOlume) and the nn is a percentage between
00 and 99 to set the volume. It also turns the volume down when the
phone rings and puts it back where it was when you hang up. Music
commands are MU something and video commands are VI something.

Okay, I will admit that you could do this with an IR remote. My point
was to show that you can use Asterisk to control other computers in real
time. But nobody sees it that way. They just see a way to avoid
getting any exercise.

Lo and Behold! This gets people excited. I should have figured out
long ago that no one wants to pay for something useful but they will pay
anything for help with wasting their time effortlessly.

If anybody needs me, I will he laying on a sofa somewhere

Bill
