Pi Powered Doorbell

I am thinking of replacing my current doorbell with a raspberry pi so that when someone rings the doorbell, it triggers the pi to play a sound. Is this possible? Any ideas on what I would need to detect someone ringing the doorbell?

Can you change the default flite voice?

Is there a way (ENV variable, config file, etc) to set the default voice that flite uses?

Re: Any way to fix a fry Pi?

I tried a few so I am not sure but I think it was the two on the very end. Won't make that mistake again. Just ordered another one. Makes me sad to have to throw away such an amazing product. ;(

That gets you Maria DB which is the more modern version of MySQL.
Thanks, I was able to install it. however it seems that 10.0.27-MariaDB-0+deb8u1 (Raspbian) does not support "json" datatypes. I want mysql 5.7 for the json data type support.
