The real problem with organizing a podcast around well-known Macintosh writers is that we're all slaves to Apple's product announcements. Normally, that just means we're a bit more crazed, but still up for recording MacNotables podcasts. But with the release of Leopard, we all disappeared into major deadlines, resulting in only a few shows since Leopard's ship date. But last week, Tonya and I and Andy Ihnatko were able to connect with Chuck Joiner to record a two-part show. In the first part, we talked about the TidBITS Gift Guide, what we're really doing with regard to Leopard, and some social networking sites. In the second part, we continue the discussion of social networking sites before veering off into a look at another of Andy's areas of expertise - comic books - along with some thoughts on the 1980s. (We’re easily sidetracked at the best of times, and we're all still mentally exhausted.)
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.
