Hi 🙂

I signed up for, and watched, this free lesson last evening:-

https://www.iphonelife.com/iphone_camera_free_lesson

I have subsequently subscribed as an "Insider" and will endeavour to
absorb the information with which I am provided over the months ahead.

YOU might like to take a look at iPhone Life too.

It seems 100% genuine; you may have seen their magazine in the shops!

LOL. Good one.

You have a 10 year history here - not to mention the numerous forums where
you have been banned - that proves you don’t absorb anything except
alcohol.

Any takers on how long it takes Dipshit David to get banned from this?

I think he'll lose interest, just like when he recently talked about
becoming fluent with Wireshark so that he could collect packet captures
in order to check for what he calls backdoor traffic. Less than 24 hours
later, he had dropped the Wireshark plan. To put it bluntly, he doesn't
have the technical foundation to do anything significant, and he knows
it, so this latest crusade is probably doomed from the start.

I stopped drinking alcohol on 21 March 2018

The course is quite expensive; I'll not be banned from attending.

That is in contravention of the rules.

No one with any sense trusts you to know what "the rules" are.

so? You do exactly that quite often. Including to _me_ on at least three
occasions. Glass houses, boyo, glass houses.
where’s the lie?

> where’s the lie?

1. Start up from macOS Recovery

To start up from macOS Recovery, turn on your Mac and immediately press
and hold one of the following combinations on your keyboard. Command-R
is generally recommended, especially if you never installed macOS Sierra
10.12.4 or later… How to reinstall macOS - Apple Support

Command (⌘)-R

Install the latest macOS that was installed on your Mac.

Option-⌘-R

Upgrade to the latest macOS compatible with your Mac.

Shift-Option-⌘-R

Install the macOS that came with your Mac, or the closest version still
available.

2. Decide whether to erase (format) your disk

If you need to erase your disk before installing macOS, select Disk
Utility from the Utilities window, then click Continue. You probably
don't need to erase, unless you're selling or giving away your Mac or
have an issue that requires you to erase. Learn more about when and how
to erase.

3. Install macOS

After starting up from macOS Recovery, follow these steps to install macOS:

Choose Reinstall macOS (or Reinstall OS X) from the Utilities window.
Click Continue, then follow the onscreen instructions to choose your
disk and begin installation.
If the installer asks to unlock your disk, enter the password you use to
log in to your Mac. If it doesn't see your disk, or it says that it
can't install on your computer or volume, you might need to erase your
disk.
Please allow installation to complete without putting your Mac to sleep
or closing its lid. During installation, your Mac might restart and show
a progress bar several times, and the screen might be empty for minutes
at a time.
If your Mac restarts to a setup assistant, but you're selling or giving
it away, press Command-Q to quit the assistant without completing setup.
Then click Shut Down. When the new owner starts up the Mac, they can use
their own information to complete setup.

If you never installed macOS Sierra 10.12.4

If macOS Sierra 10.12.4 or later was never installed on your Mac, macOS
Recovery works differently:

Command-R is still the recommended way to start up from macOS Recovery.
This combination makes sure that the installation isn't associated with
your Apple ID, which is important if you're selling or giving away your Mac.

Option-Command-R installs the macOS that came with your Mac, or the
closest version still available.

If Shift-Option-Command-R isn't available.

you keep posting that. you keep not being about to point out even one lie.
Interesting. A long copy-paste... containing no evidence showing that I lied.
Why, it’s almost as if the vile one was a brain-damaged, insane, deluded,
troll and stalker. Hmmm. He _is_ a brain-damaged, insane, deluded, troll and
stalker.

On 29/04/2022 13:56, Wolffan has asked me to keep posting the truth
about him.

*Wolffan IS a LIAR*

He calls me names but provides absolutely *NO* evidence of his claims.
