comment Finder Replacements?
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.

Hiding the problem is VERY much NOT a solution.

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 System update is not finding the outdated files.

And in the * wonderfully* helpful help dialog: If other solutions don’t work, then it’s possible Mail wasn’t correctly updated during a software update. In this case, try reinstalling Mail. I just did that

Oh, wait. Crap. You can’t use this version of Mail with this version of Mac OS X You have Mail version 4.3 (1081/1082). It can’t be used on Mac OS X Version 10.6.6 (Build 10J567). For more information, click the Help button.

This, but not quite. First you insert the thumbdrive. Then you mount /Volumes/Mac OS X Install/MacOSX.dmg. Then, on the dmg, you open /Volumes/Mac OS X Install Image/System/Installation/Packages/Mail.pkg

Well, I removed those too, so reinstalling them wouldn't be too much of a problem.

Braking your warranty is a non-issue, you just flash to stock. As far as I know, no malware has made it into Cydia, and if you feel you can't trust Cydia, I don't see why you would trust the App Store, considering the irregularities in apple's screening process, and the numerous userland exploits used to break out of the sandbox to install jailbreak in the first place, which crop up regularly (If the sandbox was secure, jailbreaking would not happen in the first place). The fact that apps can do interesting things as root/privileged user is half of the advantage of jailbreaking.
