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.

Netscape 1.1N Patch for SLIP

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape 1.1N Patch for SLIP -- It appears that Netscape has released patchers to Netscape 1.1N which install improved networking code that should "crash less on SLIP-based connections." I'm all in favor of Netscape crashing less; however, a couple notes are in order. First, it appears that the patchers only operate on Netscape 1.1N; folks who paid for Netscape Navigator have reported problems using the patch on the version 1.1 that they purchased. (A work-around might be to grab a freely-available copy of 1.1N from Netscape's site.) Also, it's probably a good idea to keep an unpatched version of Netscape around, just in case the patch doesn't help or makes things worse. So, if you access the Internet via SLIP, the patchers are available at the following URL - make sure to grab the one matching the version of Netscape you use. There's no word right now whether this patch helps with PPP connections, and the ReadMe file is remarkably unhelpful. [GD]
