The hold music for our company's phone system is served by an ancient ipod that's locked in an electrical closet, duck-taped to the wall. Nobody remembers the ipod's unlock code.

@unicornfarts this is amazing 😁. Kind of impressive too for the iPod just chugging along

@unicornfarts awsome, how did you connect it to the phone system?

@techit We use Shoretel VoIP phone system, and the server for it is running in said electrical room in a ATX tower sitting on the floor. The ipod is connected to it directly with an aux cable. Shoretel is our last remaining physical server on-site, everything else is a VM running at the data center down the street.
