    Default Terminal: Show and Hide Hidden Files
    This is useful for anyone who SSHs from their mac into their iPhones and for various other purposes as well. It's also something I am asked about frequently.

    Show Hidden Files:
    ----------
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE
    killall Finder
    ----------

    Hide Hidden Files (Redundant, no?)
    ----------
    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE
    killall Finder
    ----------

    This is one of my favorite tricks. When I feel lazy I just use Onyx.

    Also a favorite trick of mine. Use to just open the files by navigating with Transmit. Don't use that program any more.
