Hey..

New convert here! I have had my MBP for a few months and have started eating up my hard drive. When I go to my HD, the size column almost without fail fails to show the size of the individual files. What gives???

Are the files folders?

Try : View menu/show view options/calculate all sizes

Have you looked at the View menu's Show View Options (command-J)? There's an option in that window to "calculate all sizes." Piot beat me to it.

Piot,

Just spent a few days in London - stayed at the Regent Palace at Piccadilly. Had a great time and realized my hometown, Chicago, has a ways to go before attaining the "world class city" designation London so richly deserves.
