I snapped and I'm now an administrator on my local machine.  It started with trying to install Shareaza, and coming up against a brick wall because it wouldn't let me change any of the settings as a non-administrator.  That's right, you have to run a filesharing program as an administrator.  I can't think of a better way to screw up my computer.  Then I saw an interesting article about a program called Sudo for Windows, which looked like it would be very useful.  You can run programs, shortcuts, control panels and more with elevated privileges, and it also gave you the ability to open a temporary higher priveleged explorer shell, from which you could return to your normal shell at any time.  Unfortunately, after I installed it, I discovered that it seemed to require a freaking admin account in order to work properly.  Oh irony, you practical joker.  I finally gave up the ghost and I'm running as administrator again.  Maybe Vista will improve on the experience when it comes out.

In completely unrelated news, I'm pumped right now.  I spent about 4 hours in front of djDecks this afternoon, trying to record a mix.  In the process, I became thoroughly frustrated by the buggy keybinding system (seriously, can it even recall any custom bindings between sessions?  That bit me so often.) as well as the active deck behaviour, but I persevered.  I am the proud father of a 10 minute uninterrupted mix, complete with flanger and echo effects and four whole songs!

Justin Timberlake - Rock Your Body (Paul Oakenfold Remix) vs Gwen Stefani - Hollaback Girl (mrlachatte's Acapella Edit)
Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit (mrlachatte's Dirty Gwen Funker Intro Edit)
Blur - Song 2

I would appreciate if I got other peoples' opinions on this.  I only just realized that the non-chorus bits of Hollaback Girl aren't really in key with Rock You Body and there are a couple sections where the beats are a bit spotty but nothing too drastic, and the bass levels on Smells Like are too high.  I'm happy with how the transition between Smells and Song 2 went, but I did it better in practice a few times.  So please, comment.  Massacre my bandwidth.  Help me improve!
