I'm an Australian developer (working overseas) currently working in marine science on underwater visualisation and analysis software. My day-to-day working language is C++, but I have a particular liking for Delphi, which I've used since version 1 in 1995 (when I would have been, what, 12...)

I started programming on a BBC Master microcomputer (mode 2! So many colours!) before moving to Turbo Pascal for DOS, and then Delphi. My hobby languages these days are Delphi and Objective C.

The warning hasn't reoccurred, so I think you're right - changing seems to have dismissed it. I can relax :)

Hah, yes, it's always worth asking :) But no, no network profile set either.

Thanks bmike. I haven't jailbroken, nor have I got Exchange set up, nor is there a Profiles option in my General settings. I have manually changed my passcode already as a precaution, but there was nothing on that page of the Settings that indicated I needed to change it.

@Robuust Interesting list, thanks for adding it. My code didn't match any of those, but... I guess Apple knows what are insecure codes better than I do :)
