Hackpose

1.1.1
02 November 2003

Allows you to enable/disable Expose blob.

Overview

Hackposé turns on the secret Exposé "floating blob" which allows quick control over the Exposé feature in Panther 10.3. Hackposé is a utility that will allow you to quickly turn on the hidden "Exposé blob" that allows you to control Exposé with a floating controller. The hint was found at Mac OS X Hints (www.macosxhints.com). The program simply issues a command that writes to the dock's defaults and turns the blob on or off.

"Isn't this something that i can do in the terminal?" Yes. Like our other programs, we strive to make sure you don't have to deal with the terminal if you don't want to. Don't complain--it's supposed to be easy!

What's new in Hackpose

Version 1.1 turns on the alternate "Show Desktop" feature of Exposé where the windows turn into one small window (not shooting off the sides as usual)

Ya, you could use the program if you really don't like the terminal but, for just a simple command by the time i launchbar into terminal type the command kill the dock and it reboots i probably would have just finished loading the program to do it. Besides what's the point of having all this unix underpinning with all of its power if you're not at least comfortable using it when required?

This product has been retired... but supposedly can be purchased with a small donation along with 9 other "retired apps." You choose the amount. I was skeptical of this system, and being a poor college student who doesn't have much money in his account at the moment anyway, I contributed $2.00... supposedly, I can get the same functionality elsewhere for free, 'though it's never worked for me. Yeah. Never saw the program, was never taken to a download page. Just taken back to my PayPal account. It's only 2 bucks, so I'm not hurting... but I wouldn't encourage anyone to donate now.

Don't install this programm, to it uninstall properlly you will need another programm, like Onyx. And by way Onyx can do it as well.

I have experienced a quirky problem using the "Show Desktop" feature of Hackposé, using an AlBook running 10.3.2. When I enable the show desktop feature, I am unable to click on any items (buttons, links, finder window items, etc) in the area occupied by the reduced desktop image. I know the If-Then guys didn't write that aspect of Exposé, but we users/guinea pigs ought to be aware of this problem. This &*%$!! bug drove me crazy for a week until I finally figured it out.

Just like the program "journalizer" that we put out last year, there were heated discussions on whether to use this or not and could it harm your system. To be honest with you, we are all still alive, whether we used Journalizer or not. My point is that *ANY* software can damage a system--right down to the menubar eyeball program. We didn't experience any problems with our test machines, but we cannot duplicate every possible system out there. Bottom line: *** IF YOU DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE USING 3RD PARTY SOFTWARE, THEN DON'T USE IT. ***

The blob is friggin weird. YMMV. People on macosxhints.com seem to be having multiple problems with expose after playing with the blob hint. Looks like the blob was a feature that expose was supposed to have, but it didn't work right so they disabled it. I think I 'll just stick to F-keys for now.
