iTunes Song Options Without Opening iTunes

I'm looking for an Apple script or (preferably) Automator or Quicksilver action that will allow me to set a song to "Skip When Shuffling" while I'm listening to it on iTunes, so I can mark songs I don't want to hear when they come up without switching windows.

where does quicksilver look for ical calendars?

Where does Quicksilver find calendars when adding items to iCal? When I go to the third pane to specify the task's calendar, QS presents me with a list of choices that I assume I created at some point in the past but which in no way correspond to my current list of iCal calendars. I want to delete these ghost calendars and make sure that QS accesses my current list. Any help would be much appreciated.

Move quicksilver's bezel interface

Does anyone know how to change the screen position of the Bezel interface in Quicksilver. I have a dual-monitor setup and I'd rather move it to one screen or the other (which is available with Cube or Primer.) If its in the center of the screen and there are three panes displayed, the center one is difficult to see.

Why does my Gmail Notifier and Quicksilver unexpectedly quit?

I'm running OS X 10.4.10 on an Intel iMac. I've never had any troubles until about a week ago, but now every once in a while, both Gmail Notifier and Quicksilver quit for no good reason. The icons in the menu bar disappear and I have to restart both of them. This sometimes happens after I wake my computer up from Sleep mode, other times it happens while I'm working on the computer. Does anyone know what might be causing this?

Switching Audio Outputs in OSX

Is there a way to quickly switch between audio outputs in OS X? I have speakers set up through a Griffin iMic, and I also have headphones that I plug into my iBook's headphone jack. Sometimes I like to be able to quickly switch from one to another. Currently I have to go to the sound preference pane choose from my options there. Obviously this isn't an enormous pain in the ass, but it would be nice if I could map it to a keystroke or something. I have Quicksilver and have fiddled with it a little, but if there is a way to make it do what I want, I can't figure it out.
