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.

Usenet Macintosh Programming Award Winners -- Congratulations to the nominees and winners of the Usenet Macintosh Programming Awards! Organized by Matthew Mora <mxmora@unix.sri.com>, the awards not only highlight cool Mac programming feats, but also emphasize support of the net and those who have earned the respect of the Mac programming community.

  • Commercial Product: CodeWarrior from Metrowerks
  • Shareware Product: Anarchie from Peter N Lewis
  • Freeware Product: WASTE from Marco Piovanelli
  • Support of Mac Programming Community: Greg Galanos (Metrowerks)
  • Official SmartFriend (most helpful net citizen): Jon Watte

Winners will receive a plaque and t-shirt, plus a surprising array of prizes donated by vendors, including versions of CodeWarrior, Symantec C++, MPW Pro, BBEdit, and other programming tools and resources. For the time being, you can check out a list of winners and prizes at:
