    lol so I tried to copy preferences.app to my computer so I'd have a backup and got a strange error: apparently it couldn't copy some file from /Applications/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/Preferences.app/


    I thought this was strage, so I decided to investigate - apparently on my ipod theres a huge line of duplicate folders in prefernces.app:

    the first duplicate is another version of the app. the rest are duplicates of a few folders.

    wtf? also in my var/root folder theres a folder called Applications_ROOT that contains all of my apps, and another copy of the applications folder. but nothing takes up triple the space, so these are like symlinks that dont redirect to another folder.

    my ipod works fine, running 1.1.4.

    what is this though? are the duplicate preferences necessary files or can I leave those out of my backup?

    ok I think I've figured it out:

    inside my ipod is a wormhole when, if entered, would cause the universe to implode.

    or

    second theory:

    my ipod contains the secret to time travel

    or

    third theory:

    my ipod just got messed up so it made a ton of folders inside preferences.app [thats boring
