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.

AV Monitor Correction Again -- Daniel V. Blystone <dblyston@weird.biol.trinity.edu> writes: "In regards to the comment by Michael Shannon last week, you do not need a TV to see what you are recording QuickTime movies. You do need software that will let you see what you are recording, such as Adobe Premiere, which lets you view the input while you record. Many of the Apple utilities do not let you preview while recording. There are several advantages to having a TV monitor hanging around. You can run your captured movies on the TV using NTSC standard, and you can watch your favorite cartoon while you work."

Michael Shannon <datamike@aol.com> clarifies: "Perhaps the way I worded the statement was misleading. Recording QuickTime movies from an external video source is no problem. It's recording the video OUTPUT (either composite or S-VHS) that disables the Mac display."
