when first we practise to deceive.
You have been asking for ways around NetNanny for some time now. Now you have found one, it has come back to bite you in the butt! Logging on as Single User is a very dangerous thing to do. It gives you complete Root access without the need for any passwords and with your limited knowledge of Unix, you are a menace to the system.
Of course it will look like you have been screwing with the system, because you have.
While there may be a way to remove all the updates and go back to the previous versions, it is time consuming and you probably will not have time to complete all the necessary moves before Dad logs on.
Maybe your Dad needs to get a handle on Open Firmware passwords or just lock the machine in closet, you obviously can't be trusted with it.
Just my 10c
So I've got a problem...
To get around my net nanny I've been holding down Cmd+S while starting up and using that account to get around my net nanny. The other night, I checked for updates on Software Update and I accidentally downloaded them all. Now it will look to my Dad the next time he checks for updates (whic he always does) I have been screwing with the system and will get mad at me.
Here are the updates that I downloaded and installed;
IWEB UPDATE 1.1.2
iPHOTO UPDATE 6.0.5
PAGES UPDATE 2.02
KEYNOTE UPDATE 3.0.2
IMOVIE HD UPDATE 6.0.3
IDVD UPDATE 6.0.3
GARAGEBAND UPDATE 3.0.4
MAC OS X UPDATE (POWERPC) 10.4.8
Now what I want to know is if there is any way to get rid of the evidence that I updated these programs from Software Update of the ones that needed an admin password and I want to know how to "roll" these versions back to their prior ones like you can do on Windows. Can someone help me? Please!
