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.

eWorld Email Changes

eWorld Email Changes -- Several TidBITS readers on eWorld wrote us last week saying they received TidBITS as file attachments with a 25K preview rather than as a series of messages. These changes are reminiscent of those AOL recently inflicted on its users (see TidBITS-292 and TidBITS-294); however, it looks like the attached files arrive as Macintosh text files rather than DOS text files, so at least they're immediately useful without conversion. We haven't changed anything about the way we send issues to eWorld; if eWorld's new mail handling is causing you problems, please ask someone at eWorld about the changes. [GD]
