    People enjoy a good laugh, and you are the leading clown. If you can't see which posts have been deleted....well.......

     

    Anyhow, I thought all was cleared up with your 'programmer' rewriting the entire Unix code for you?

    Nope.  As stated earlier the programmer made a patch and now things are fine.  No need to rewrite all the code. No password needed for the two utilities.    He did it for free.

     

    Apple's Disk Utility doesn't require an admin password when repairing permissions, so it just makes sense that the third party utility password, as required by Apple, could be circumvented. As this might be construed as modifying Apple's OS, he asked that it not be shared with anyone.  That's fine, since everyone else here enjoys passwords, even if one letter or number.

     

    Thank you all who participated in this enjoyable and productive thread.

    Forgot to add that with Cocktail one can have it run with a blank (no) password.

     

    Here is how:  Set up a password, configure and enable the Pilot scheduler, and then change back to no password aka blank password.
