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.

Vote for TidBITS! American Journalism Review's NewsLink is conducting a "Best of the Web" poll for online news sites. TidBITS doesn't rely primarily on the Web, considering that our 42,000-person mailing list is our main distribution method, but, sniff, we're not even listed. Luckily, they're taking write-in votes, so if you'd like to help us get a little recognition, just enter our URL - http://www.tidbits.com/ - in the write-in field at the URL below. Thanks! [ACE]
