 +===== Dock ===== 
 + 
 +We'll install the ''​dockutil''​ tool, so we can add and remove dock items from the command line. 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +curl -k -O https://​raw.github.com/​kcrawford/​dockutil/​master/​scripts/​dockutil 
 +sudo mkdir -p /​usr/​local/​bin 
 +sudo cp dockutil /​usr/​local/​bin/​ 
 +sudo chmod +x /​usr/​local/​bin/​dockutil 
 +</code> 
 + 
 +Now we can easily remove items that we don't want in the dock: 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +dockutil --remove Launchpad 
 +dockutil --remove '​Mission Control'​ 
 +dockutil --remove Mail 
 +dockutil --remove Contacts 
 +dockutil --remove Reminders 
 +dockutil --remove Notes 
 +dockutil --remove Maps 
 +dockutil --remove Messages 
 +dockutil --remove FaceTime 
 +dockutil --remove 'Photo Booth'​ 
 +dockutil --remove iPhoto 
 +dockutil --remove iBooks 
 +dockutil --remove '​System Preferences'​ 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +We'll add couple built-in items to the dock: 
 +<code bash> 
 +dockutil --add '/​Applications/​Utilities/​Terminal.app'​ 
 +dockutil --add '/​Applications/​Utilities/​Activity Monitor.app'​ 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +We'll add the following items to the dock when we install them: 
 + 
 +  * Thunderbird 
 +  * Firefox 
 +  * Komodo 
 +  * TextMate 
 +  * Eclipse 
 +  * VLC 
 +  * VMware 
 + 
 + 
 +===== Finder ===== 
 + 
 +  * View as List 
 +  * View / Show View Options 
 +    * CHECK Always open in list view 
 +      * CHECK Browse in list view 
 +    * Arrange By: None

 +    * Home directory 
 +    * Personal 
 +    * Work 
 +    * Projects 
 +    * Downloads 
 +    * Applications 
 +    * Utilities 
 + 
 + 
 +===== Locate Database ===== 
 + 
 +Start daemon to populate the ''​locate''​ database, so we can use the ''​locate''​ command: 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +sudo launchctl load -w /​System/​Library/​LaunchDaemons/​com.apple.locate.plist 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +===== Hostname ===== 
 + 
 +The Computer Name is set in the Sharing Preferences pane, but this doesn'​t affect what the ''​hostname''​ command returns. To remedy this, issue the following command: 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +sudo scutil --set HostName hope 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 + 
 +===== Home Directory ===== 
 + 
 +We'd like to create some more "​standard"​ directories in our home directory. 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +cd ~ 
 +mkdir -p Work Work/​Projects Work/​Training Personal 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +For some reason, after reformatting and reinstalling Mac OS X Mountain Lion, my home directory ended up with 040777 permissions. Bundler and some other programs complained about this being world writable, and it truly is a security issue. So we manually removed the write permissions:​ 
 + 
 +<code bash> 
 +chmod go-w $HOME 
 +</​code>​
