I um... received the following message when I used the "sudo periodic daily" command:


"We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to two things:


#1) Respect the privacy of others.
#2) Think before you type."


Is this normal??? iBook 600Mhz Mac OS 10.2.8

    Hi !

    Don't worry ! This is perfectly normal !

    Indeed, you receive this message because this is the first time that you use the "sudo" command that allows you to gain additional privileges for a short period of time.

    Since these privileges allow you to perform some very powerful tasks, Mac OS X warns you to use them with care.

    You won't see this warning again !
