I'm a graduate of Computer Science at the University of Bath. I dabble in most things, so my questions will probably be rather eclectic and random.

All views are my own, and not those of my employer.

comment Can't boot to newly created Recovery Partiton
Would internet recovery not result in the latest release being downloaded? I always thought the only way to have a reinstall of old versions was to have one lying around.

comment Can Gatekeeper be disabled via terminal in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion?
That's true. I've just looked in the actual SystemPolicy Database, and from what I can tell there's only a few labels that it uses. "GKE","Developer ID", "Mac App Store", "Apple System", "Apple Installer", "No Matching Rule". Although as these Strings are arbitrary [And may change in future OSX versions] this may be too hacky, but it seems possible that you could manually disable GKE and Developer ID.
