I have a hidden user on my neighbours MacBook pro which I user to manage some scripts for backing up his huge media library, he is a music producer and is technically challenged I used the sudo dscl . /Users/xxx -create .... IsHidden to hide my user and the system preferences / Users to move the home directory to /private/var/hiddden/... so far so good, I can ssh in to manage the cmd line stuff and rsync jobs I can't log on using the gui though...
