Disable warning when changing file extensions in Finder
Authored by: BiL Castine on Apr 25, '12 07:57:12AM
WRT the "long list of defaults commands": it's pretty obvious from looking at the list that it's perfectly suited (perhaps even intended) to be run as a well commented shell script, allowing one to set a whole bunch of settings without having to mouse around through a GUI at all. Quite a boon for anyone who sets up a new computer and wants to configure a lot of settings with the least amount of effort.

I'm glad that Apple provided two ways to change preferences in the OS: GUI and Terminal. One makes it (relatively) obvious and one makes it easy to script.
