I tested this in Leopard (10.5.8) but it should work with Snow Leopard (10.6.x). Please comment telling me if it does work in 10.6.x.
In Terminal, type the following
defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilte-stack -boolean YES;killall Dock;killall Terminal
Terminal will close, and your Dock will flash. Open a stack, and you now have a gradient when you mouse over an icon.
I know it’s old. Just thought I would post it here. Also, to reverse it, copy and paste the same code, but replace YES with NO.
Ever get sick of the boring glass “3D” dock?
Try this simple trick to change it to 2D:
open “terminal” and type:
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock

(ALL VERSIONS OF MAC OSX) Open Script Editor which can be found by typing “Script Editor” into spotlight. This works for any version of OSX, even the BETA I think but no one uses that anymore, so full of glitches, features you take for granted just aren’t there… Anyway, when you go into script editor type in: say “Hello, how are you doing today?” Copy and paste that, you can replace the text inside the speech marks with anything you want the computer to say, then click the green play button.
I’m new here so I’m not sure if you have this tip or not but it is quite funny to listen to the computer say things that you type…
