View Extra Audio Details in Snow Leopard
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.

If you can’t remember or don't know the password associated with your TidBITS/Take Control account, please enter the email address that goes with your account. You will receive an email message with a freshly randomized password. After logging in with that password, you can change it to something more memorable. (If you also receive email about Take Control ebooks at this email address, requesting a new password will also reset the password for accessing your Take Control Library, so you'll want to update your password manager for www.takecontrolbooks.com too.)
