Gifts, Contests, Easter Eggs A few weeks ago, we took a look at TotalFinder, a collection of add-ons to the Mac OS X Finder that fixes some of its shortcomings, adds some welcome features, and in all, makes it a little more pleasant to use. We've got three free copies of TotalFinder to hand out, so read on to find out how you can win one!

Once upon a time when unicorns roamed the Earth, there was this little gay unicorn, named Unicorny, who was a big fan of Fiona Apple. One day he heard from one of his unicorn friends that she was going to have a concert nearby. Oh, how happy was the little unicorn. Now all he had to do was leave early from work, put on his glittery "I love Fiona Apple" tshirt and catch the 5 o'clock rainbow to the concert hall.

But, the horror ... Unicorny had a lot of work to do before leaving. His boss asked him to clean-up his computer, and unfortunately for our little unicorn he was a pig when it came to file-management. But the worst of all - he used Mac OS X.

Unicorny searched high and low for a proper way to do this job ... he tried MuCommander, but it crashed too often, he tried PathFinder, but it was too complicated for his little unicorn brain and he even tried to use the terminal, but his hooves were too big for the aluminium keyboard.

"If only Finder were not so retarded", thought Unicorny to himself. As a tear raced from his left eye the room became filled with light and on his desk the Software Fairy appeared.

"I should lay of the pot", said Unicorny and tried to stomp the little creature. "Wait! Stop!" cried the fairy. "I'm the Software Fairy, you little dipshit! Stop trying to kill me and I'll grant you one wish".

Unicorny looked at the little fairy and said with a timid hopeful voice "I want proper file-management on OS X, with all the latest innovations like Cut and Folders first!".

"What you asked is no small feat", said the fairy, "but I have to write an article for OSNews.com latter tonight and I don't have time to hear you whine. Here, have a copy of Total Finder and you'll be done in no time".

"Thank you Mister Fairy" said Unicorny. "You can call me Thom" replied the Fairy and vanished in a cloud of glitter.

Said and done. Unicorny did all his work in time and saw Fiona Apple's concert. That night a little gay unicorn cried tears of joy thanks to Total Finder. The End.
