Protect your Mac using an Open Firmware banner
Authored by: ibroughton on Jan 04, '05 03:06:11PM

I agree with the thought of using a banner, and using Open Firmware to protect your machine.

Also, the thought of using your password hint to display contact information.

Is there no way of combining these elements to display a banner every time the machine boots, rather than having to go into OF to see the banner?

Well, you could add a custom string to the login window, as discussed in this previous hint.

Not incredibly elegant, but it gets the job done...

I agree, it gets the job done. I just wish that there was a way that would make this process more pleasing to the eye! :-(
