    is there any way to change the info shown from checking off "show item info" in finder icon view to HD space instead of items? i generally don't care how many subfolders are in these folders; size of folder would be way more useful to me. feel like this could be accomplished in terminal.

    alternatively if you could point me to a place where terminal geniuses hang out that would be great too.

    In list view, under View/Show View Options you can check the box "Calculate all sizes".

    In Terminal, you could use du -h -s *
