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.

DealBITS Drawing: A Sharp's Opal

Send Article to a Friend

I introduced last week's DealBITS drawing for Rogue Amoeba's Fission audio editing program by talking about how good it was to see simple, focused programs returning to a field after the major applications had become more complex than was desired by many early users. The same is true of A Sharp's Opal, the successor to the popular Acta outliner of yesteryear. While many outliners now feature multiple columns, style sheets, notes, and a wide variety of other fancy features, Opal remains focused on just one thing: outlining. It's small, friendly, and for many people, I suspect, all that an outliner should be (for more details, see Matt Neuburg's "Acta Reborn as Opal," 2006-10-23).

In this week's DealBITS drawing, you can enter to win one of three copies of Opal, each worth $32. Entrants who aren't among our lucky winners will receive a discount on Opal, so be sure to enter at the DealBITS page linked below. All information gathered is covered by our comprehensive privacy policy. Be careful with your spam filters and challenge-response systems, since you must be able to receive email from my address to learn if you've won. Remember too, that if someone you refer to this drawing wins, you'll receive the same prize as a reward for spreading the word.
