Scripting by the Bay, Redux -- For those who need to acquire or hone AppleScript skills, Shane Stanley and Ray Robertson will once again be leading their wonderfully intensive AppleScript Pro sessions, 02-May-05 through 06-May-05, in beautiful Monterey, California. I'm slated once again to teach my famous "forced march through AppleScript Studio" class. One source of real excitement is the question of whether Tiger will have shipped in time; if it does, we'll be able to talk about the new features, such as BLEEEP and BOOOP (sorry, censored by the NDA police).

In Snow Leopard, Option-clicking the Volume icon in the menu bar displays a list of sound input and output devices. Choose one to switch to it; it's much easier than using the Sound preference pane. Also, hold Shift and click the icon to set the system volume, which is separate from the general output volume.
