Recommendations for music mixing software?

Looking for a car stereo with a good UI.

The factory-installed stereo in my car has stopped playing CDs, and my commute is fairly long, so this is essentially unacceptable. I've looked into getting it repaired, but the whole stereo'll have to be sent away for weeks, and it'll end up costing a bunch. But I've yet to find an add-on in-dash stereo for $200 or less that isn't terribly ugly. [more inside]

you fool windows you can't get fooled again

Windows XP: What does the "Speaker setup" option do, if you choose one of the various stereo options (desktop, laptop, monitor stand, monitor side, keyboard, headphones)?

What speakers should I pair with the Sonic Impact Class T amp?

Help with emailing large audio files

I need to receive emails containing lengthy audio. One mail account simply does not show the attachment coming in. My .mac email account gives the sender this message: "This message is larger than the current system limit or the recipient's mailbox is full. Create a shorter message body or remove attachments and try sending it again." My mail box is definitely not full. Does anyone know of any way to email larger audio documents? Or a (free, preferably) email account without such limitations? The sender is a city government entitity, so getting them to compress, etc., is unlikely. Thanks.
