In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.

APS on the Internet

Send Article to a Friend

APS on the Internet -- Two weeks ago, I visited APS after giving an Internet presentation the night before to a great crowd at the Kansas City MacCORE users' group. I spent most of the day helping bring up their dedicated 56K Internet connection, a process that required merely persistence in having each party (Southwestern Bell, the phone company that installed the line; Cory Low, the consultant who set up the router and Mac server; Tyrell, the provider; and Sprint, Tyrell's provider) double-check everything and help fix problems in each part of the connection.

The initial utility of the connection is that APS can receive Internet email more easily than before, when everything went through CompuServe and into QuickMail. Now, their QuickMail server also runs StarNine's <info@starnine.com> Mail*Link/SMTP. You can find more information about the gateway at the following URL:

Using the gateway along with QuickMail, APS has created a number of public Internet addresses (and APS strongly encourages people to use these addresses rather than the old CompuServe address). They are: [ACE]
