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.

Mac OS X 10.2.1 is a 17.1 MB download. Also released, but without details about what's changed, was iTunes 3.0.1, which offers unspecified performance enhancements and Jaguar compatibility; the update is a 5 MB download. Finally, Apple posted Security Update 2002-09-20, which replaces the Terminal application for an undisclosed reason; the download is 680K. [JLC]
