I have no idea whether anyone will find the program I just posted to my site useful or not. It's called iTunesMouseRemote, and it turns your mouse into, well, a remote for iTunes. You activate it by picking an option from the Script menu in iTunes, and deactivate it by pressing the escape key. It is very simple right now, more a proof-of-concept than anything else. It doesn't work that great with multiple monitors, or do anything useful with mice that have more than three buttons. Contact me if you want me to "beef it up," so to speak. I find it useful, especially with my Logitech bluetooth mouse, but your mileage my vary. I am very interested in any feedback you're willing to give!
I'm sort of stuck for a little bit on getting AcidSearch 0.4 to install on everyone's machines. I'm getting there, at least, but it will be a little while yet before I do an "official" release. You can still download the 0.4 "preview edition" from http://www.pozytron.com/files/AcidSearch040.zip (it's been updated some since my last post) if you want to give it a shot. If it doesn't install, you can always uninstall it and put 0.34 back on. It includes some sparkling new features, so I recommend you give it a shot!
UPDATE: I have received a lot of emails about iTMR--I am very glad to find people have found it useful! I actually came up with this concept back in 2003 and have never bothered to release it, thinking people would not really find it useful.
