Increase Boom Volume Quickly

If you're using Boom to increase the volume on your Mac, you can change the amount to which Boom increases the volume quickly in two ways. Either use the slider available from Boom's menu bar icon, or enable and set hotkeys (Command-Shift-+ and Command-Shift-- by default). Then, when you need that push to 11, more volume is available at the click of the mouse or tap of the keyboard.

MacTech Boot Camps Fast Approaching

Send Article to a Friend

As we noted not long ago in “MacTech Boot Camp Adds Four More Cities” (18 February 2011), the MacTech Boot Camp conferences are going on the road, with events scheduled for Dallas, Boston, Los Angeles, and Chicago in the next four months. Having them throughout the country should make it easier for people to attend without requiring significant travel. MacTech Boot Camp conferences cover topics aimed at helping consultants and support techs who work with home and small office users.

MacTech Boot Camp Dallas is fast approaching on 27 April 2011 at the Hyatt Regency DFW, and Boston isn’t far behind on 18 May 2011 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Cambridge. (Los Angeles is scheduled for 27 July 2011 and Chicago for 31 August 2011.)

Although the $200 discount for early bird registrations is no longer available for the Dallas or Boston events, TidBITS readers can get the equivalent of the $295 early bird pricing using this special link.

And, like the initial MacTech Boot Camp conference last January in San Francisco, there will be a special Apple Certification Testing session the day before the MacTech Boot Camp conference, complete with a proctor-moderated group study session beforehand for last-minute studying. Attendees can take any current Apple Training exam, and the regular $299 price drops to $199 for MacTech Boot Camp attendees.
