Ok, I admit it. Sometimes it gets to me. Coming from a Linux and FreeBSD background, I’m used to a lean-and-mean system with very few extraneous files. So when I switched to Mac about five years ago, it took a little while to adjust to a multi-gigabyte install by default, not to mention all of the crap that you then pile on top of that.
Case in point? Thanks to Barkings!, I’m now aware of this:
Go to the Finder’s Go menu, and select “Go to Folder. ” In the window that appears, type:
and hit Go. In the window that opens, double-click on the
audiotest.au file and your inquisitive nature will be fulfilled.
