You know, many routers have the ability to restrict access to specific URLs by time-of-day. Perhaps you could use this to disable your Ooma during part of the day by blocking access to Ooma's servers through your router. That is, if the blinking red rosette wouldn't drive you batty.

I like that. It could sense the demeanor of the person calling and decide whether to not to pass the call. Your boss calls to tell you you messed up - voice mail. He calls to tell you about a promotion to make you department head - it goes through with a special ring.
Duh Oh, SS having a moment... time out for SS in the RF room

You remember how everyone loved the rotating avatar? I view the blinking red rosette as a similar irritant. I would prefer my thermostat design versus an epileptic episode during my quiet time! It seems contrary to the design basis.

I would definitely support offering a White or a White and Black or a Black option. I could see paying $5 per year per White or Black option, and $10 for a White and Black option.
