Software Wish: "I'm Busy"

I was just thinking now there ought to be a program (for Windows) called "I'm Busy" (or "IM Busy", though it should work more than just IM programs).

I just had another phone interview, which I thought was very challenging and interesting...hopefully I'll get at least some response from it. Anyways, each time that I have one of these calls, I've gone to various programs in my system tray to quiet things down.

Namely, I set busy (or on the phone) status on each of the IM programs on my computer (ICQ, AIM, Y!, GTalk, MSN....I guess that's everything, at work I used to have Rhymbox....because Livelink IM uses Jabber, but requires a client that does SSL...there have been others, but lack of buddies on those has had me discontinue them inorder to keep sufficient real estate on my screen open &#59;) )

But, there's other things I want to toggle when setting 'on the phone' state. Namely, change ANT4MC to offline status (so I won't have the computer announcing the arrival of new mail to the dozens of accounts I have) and change BOINC Manager to 'suspend'. Because when BOINC is running, my computer sounds like a jet engine.....

Anybody now if such a program exists?

Oh, and to make things even more complicated...it should optionally be able to control other things on my network. Namely pause the various bandwidth intensive things (namely my ReplayTVs sending shows to other people) on my network, to improve the quality of my Vonage service....

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
