Mute button

Anyone else find they often hit the mute button, by accident, when trying to turn down the volume on their mac? I do it all the time, and then end up doing this weird finger-dance, where I kind of mute sound, turn sound up, turn sound down, mute sound, etc, etc, etc, lol.

If you really hate it you can always use KeyRemap4MacBook, that's what I use to map the iTunes controls and volume controls while using the F-keys without the fn key
