One of the things I love about Apple and Macs are all the hidden files and secret shorcuts in OS X (or even in its older operating systems). Apple programmers always seem to find time for a few jokes.

Another one has turned up. This time an audio test file:

Click on Go in the Finder and then Go To Folder and enter this /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.3/lib/python2.3/test/

Look for a file called 'audiotest.au'.

I’d like to claim credit for it, but sadly I’ve been too busy lately with the Expo and the magazine to spend my time crawling through OS X’s folder structure. Thanks for this one goes out to Mac OS X Tips.
