Distributed Audio over Power Line - AOP

I didn't make it to Foo this year, and can't make it to Barcamp, so I put together this hack to listen to the Barcamp conference over my second Vonage VoIP line. Audio from the conference bridge gets pumped out the earpiece jack of a Polycom Soundpoint phone, then goes into a power over Ethernet audio adapter, then gets received in my audio rack and pumped throughout my Russound whole house distributed audio system. Now every room in my house can hear the conference. My audio hack would also work well with earnings calls or those forever work conferences...
