How do you manage your music library? [more inside]
I recently had to reset my mac, losing all the downloads, and I'm having trouble finding an itunes program I had once downloaded and now realize I came to rely on heavily. Here's what it did: 1) Displayed artwork and song/artist/year in a floating window in the lower left corner 2) Had hot keys to control itunes from any program - apple-f10 made the floater appear; apple-f11 track backwards; apple-f12 track forward; apple-f13 play/pause I keep walking up to my computer and hitting apple-f10 and nothing happens. Help! Thanks.

What's the best technology for a little kid listening to music? My five-year-old loves music. We only have song on iTunes and iPods. He can't read the song titles, and it's too easy for him to mess things up. I'm wishing for a stack of records ("like we had when I was a kid") that he could manage himself. Any advice on creating a self-operable music listening system for kids in this age of digital music? Thanks!

My wife just purchased a Macbook after using a Dell Mini 9 for several years. All of our music is on a WinXP server and shared out over the network. We want to keep it all on the server if possible. Importing the music into iTunes (over wifi) is slower and more painful than it is on the Windows machines, which I'm surprised about. [more inside]
