Key to mute my Skype mic?

"I'm using a Mac.
Is there a keyboard shortcut for muting the mic during a call?
I can't find one, and I often need to toggle mute/unmute.
Clicking the button on the Skype interface is very inconvenient :("

"You can use spacebar to toggle mute/unmute.

"While the application does not have a built in keyboard shortcut for it you can add one using the Keyboard Shortcuts feature in the Keyboard Preference Pane in System Preferences.

Open System Preferences
Open Keyboard
Change to the Keyboard Shortcuts section (If using Snow Leopard click Application Shortcuts on the left side)
Press the '+' button.
Select Skype as the Application
Menu Title: ""Mute""
Choose a Keyboard Shortcut (eg. Command-Option-M as Command-M is used for minimize.)
Press OK, close System Preferences and restart Skype if it was open."
