She Drives Me Crazy :how to stop annoyin... > STOP ASKING ME FOR MY PASSWORD

STOP ASKING ME FOR MY PASSWORD

Are you like me? No. Then how about this: Are you like me in the sense that you're the only person that works on your Mac? Maybe it's your Mac at home, and not a single soul but you uses your machine (meaning, of course, your spouse, your kids, and the cat all have their own Macs). Then you don't need an administrator to tell you what you can and can't add to your own single, solitary machine, right? It's just you. And you're a good person. Then when you install Mac OS X, and it asks you for an administrator password, don't put one in. Leave it blank, and that way, you'll never have to remember your password. Oh sure, it'll try to tell you that you may have a security problem (the cat might try to sneak a virus onto your machine), but if you're the only one who will ever install a program on that machine, wouldn't you love to just click the OK button when the annoying password dialog pops up the next time you want to install a program?
