    I recently reset the boot thingy, (with shift-control-r-p) and repaired disk permissions. now if I delete something it will ask "are you sure you want to delete XXX, this item will be deleted immediately, you cant undo this action"

    google this and it seems more ppl are wanting this feature but I dont, how do I get it back my normal trash bin? I tried in Finder's preferences, didnt work.

    There is, for each user, a .Trash folder that controls the Trash can's behavior. If it's not working the way it's supposed to, there is a way to fix it involving the Terminal... but since I'm not at my Mac and I don't know the exact series of steps needed, I can't be of more help than that.
