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.

AMUG Puts 3.2 GB of Shareware on DVD

Send Article to a Friend

AMUG Puts 3.2 GB of Shareware on DVD -- With their 650 MB of storage space, CD-ROMs just don't cut it as large file repositories any more. But the Arizona Macintosh Users Group (AMUG) has now released a collection of Macintosh freeware and shareware on DVD, containing over 9,500 items for a full 3.2 GB of files (over 5 GB decompressed). Of course, you could find and download almost everything in this collection from the Internet (including numerous updates and utilities licensed from Apple), but the DVD provides faster access for those without high-speed connections, and it's also a useful archive for future reference. AMUG includes databases of the DVD's contents in several formats; unfortunately, Sherlock searches of the DVD are unaccountably slow. The DVD costs $20 ($26 outside the U.S.) direct from AMUG. [ACE]
