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.

"Take Control of Customizing Microsoft Office" Updated to Version 1.0.1 -- Version 1.0.1 of Kirk McElhearn's "Take Control of Customizing Microsoft Office" is now available. This new version clarifies and corrects a few details from the previous version, and now offers better advice for modifying toolbars, customizing Word's Normal template, and disabling the keyboard shortcuts that can accidentally trigger Word 5 Menus. Those who own version 1.0 of the ebook can download the update for free by clicking the Check for Updates button on the ebook's cover. And if you've been waiting for that first bug-fix release, now's your chance to pick up a copy. Remember, we and Kirk are donating 10 percent of all proceeds from September sales to the American Red Cross Hurricane 2005 Relief Fund (we've sent $500 so far, rather than wait for the end of the month), so sales this month are particularly appreciated!
