I couldn’t find the hosts file on my mac. I was used to finding the hosts file on a Linux system at /etc/hosts. They are in another location on a Mac 10.9.

When my OS was upgraded, I had to start typing the FQDN for all of the servers I used for work. I knew it had something to do with /etc/hosts on other Linux machines.
The file that needs to be changed for OSX is /etc/resolv.conf. there is a line that begins with search. Add the domain names that you want appended and it will append them in order until if finds the host.

Something like this normally works on Linux:
find . -type D -name .svn | rm -r
Not on Mac. You have to remember to add xargs
find . -type D -name .svn | xargs rm -r
Without the xargs, it is like calling rm without a target.
