Showing Hidden Files in Mac Finder

If you've been longing for your Mac finder to show all the files on disk, then this command is for you. Run on the console:

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
killall Finder
Now you'll be able to see all the .config files in your home directory and all the normal Unix directories on the root.

I like this dashboard widget to toggle the hidden files off and on. That way you dont have to look at the hidden files all the time.
