Hey guys, here's what I want to do: I always have music playing in the background and I want to be able to skip forward or backwards on a playlist by using an F-key (say, F6 and F7 for example) without bringing Itunes to the front. I am also too lazy to keep bringing up dashboard to use the remote. Also, I know the Iclick exists, but I am also cheap.

I am able to do that with Quicksilver:

You can set up triggers to select previous, next and play/pause.
I currently have them mapped to F1, F2 & F3 on my external keyboard.
On the iBook I'd have to hit fn + F1 to invoke it though...

Works quite well, plus you can set triggers for just about anything: Contacts, apps, commands, documents, network locations...

Check it out! www.blacktree.com
