comment How can I config my Mac to don't scape characters when I copy and paste some text on the console?
Do you mean "Escape"? Because scape is not a word.

comment What are the disadvantages of jailbreaking iPhone 4 even if it's legal?
Frankly, I've Never had an app not work, and I have a LOT of apps on my iPad (200+). (Well, except a few cydia apps that aren't updated for the iPad, even now)

You can fix the code signing issues very easily, just patch installd.

What? You can absolutely still use the apple app store after jailbreaking.

Furthermore, the hidden files are demonstrably unnecessary. Blue Harvest ( zeroonetwenty.com/blueharvest4 ) actively deletes these hidden files as they are created, and OS X continues to work perfectly. There is no excuse for the creation of all this filesystem cruft.

The only hidden file I have ever seen W7 create is the ubiquitous "Thumbs.db" files, which is only created if you have thumbnails turned on, and is very easy to disable.

comment Finder Replacements?
It most certainly works that way on PCs. I can browse all over my network shares on my W7 box without a single hidden file being created anywhere. The fact that Macs need multiple utilities to make them behave that way speaks to nothing but a lack of caring from Apples engineers.

The system should not be spawning files in any directory other than system directories, of any type, ever, unless I explicitly tell it to.

The problem isn't .ds_store files, it's that apparently the best way apple could think of managing folder settings is to have finder automatically create a hidden file in every directory it is ever used to view.

Assuming other people actually answer, rather than just say it can't be done, sure.

Soooo not an answer. If you're in a forest, and facing a bear, closing your eyes won't help.

comment How can I safely eliminate duplicate apps from my iPhone?
It's a bit tangental, bit there is a SMB daemon for iOS. This would let you use desktop tools to deal with data management. It is (Of course) Cydia only. Cydia URL: tom.zickel.org/samba It's beta, but it works pretty well.

I think I need to reinstall the 10.6.6 Combo Update. Downloading it now. System update is not finding the outdated files.
