    Hey, so... somehow the bin folder on my boot volume got exposed in Finder. It's not a big deal, exactly, I just prefer keeping all the UNIX-y folders hidden in the Finder. Is there a Terminal command or something I can issue to set it back to being hidden?

    If you have the developer tools installed, you can do this:

    sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /bin

    (that needs to be an uppercase V).

    If you don't have the tools installed, you can break out your Tiger disc and follow these instructions.
