10.5: Create an XKCD-influenced Mac 'doorbell'

If all you are looking to do is remotely increase the output volume, try this:

osascript -e 'set volume 7'

Setting volume versus Increasing volume

What if the volume was 8 to start with? The script, as presented, increases or decreases volume irrespective of the current volume (except, of course, at the extremes).

7 is the maximum setting.
