    when using Fetch 4, even whwn i turn off 'hide files begining with a period' in the preferences, i still cannot see my .htaccess files. why is this?

    Some UNIX servers hide those files unless a non-standard file listing command is used. To have Fetch use the non-standard command, run this AppleScript (you only need to run it once):

    tell application "Fetch 4.0.1"
    set use LIST minus al to true
    end tell

    Or run the SetSecretOptions script in the Fetch Example Scripts folder.
