    Genie Effect and All
    Hi All,

    I was reading this book called Hacking MAC OS X Tiger and they suggested few tricks like creating an effect other Genie. This can be created by using the following commands,

    defaults write mineffect suck

    killall Dock

    You would then have the mine effect. I was wondering if there were other effects and is it possible to create any of our own?

    Thanks in advance

    I'd use a tool such as Tinkertool to activate some of the hidden settings in Tiger.
    AFAIK it isn't possible to (easily) create other effects.
