Retrospect and Retrospect Express 4.3 Released -- Dantz Development has released version 4.3 of both their Retrospect and Retrospect Express backup programs, adding support for numerous USB and FireWire storage devices and erasing the 2 GB limit on file backup sets when used with Mac OS 9 or later on HFS Plus-formatted hard disks. In addition, Retrospect Express gains the capability to store multiple incremental backups to a single file on a secondary hard disk, something previously available only in the more-expensive Retrospect. (Keep in mind that relying on single backup on an external hard disk isn't an ideal backup strategy.) Upgrades for Retrospect users are available as a 14 MB free download (the Retrospect Client update is included); upgrades for Retrospect Express users cost $10 for a downloadable version or $20 for a CD-ROM with Mac OS 9.0.4 that can boot all current Macs. Both versions require a Mac running System 7 or later with at least 16 MB of RAM. [ACE]
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.
