Learning about my macbook

First comment when I saw it: So shinny! 🙂

Here’s how to configure the Finder application to show hidden files. Go to your Terminal and type:

> defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

> killall Finder

Now when you start Finder you should see more folder and files.
