When adjusting the volume shift+option+function key up or down makes small incremental changes.

Worth trying this with the brightness. Not in front of my Mac so I can't try it myself.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

For those with highly sensitive eyes to brightness, Shades has been indispensible for me.
It installs into System Preferences and provides a menu bar slider.

Another app for fine tuning brightness is Screenshades. They have shut down their previous site and will be opening this one soon. You may be able to still find the old version with a google.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
