Show EVERYTHING in OS X Finder

OS X thinks you don't want to see dotfiles and the like in your Finder windows. Balderdash! In a Terminal window, enter:

defaults write AppleShowAllFiles YES

and restart Finder by Option-rightclicking on the Finder icon on the Dock and selecting "Relaunch" to amend this oversight.
