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 :)

@Buscar웃 I don't think any apps do start up automatically on iOS, do they? You boot to the home screen. Otherwise, if there are background apps, it would (probably) be Facebook and Skype, not much else.

@Buscar웃 Thanks, but no I don't. It's my personal phone and my employer has never had access.

I don't have MDM set up. What is "too obvious"? I don't want to write it here, of course, but it was not a code that seemed (to me) to be obvious. It wasn't a pattern like "1234" or "2580" or anything, for example.

@MrRabbit Interesting... but I don't seem to have a Profiles section under Settings > General. Maybe that means none are installed? I haven't given my employer access to my phone, nor have I installed an app from outside the app store, nor have I installed that specific app although as you said others might do the same thing.

comment Time Machine error creating the backup folder on a spacious hard drive
Ah, ok! I used GUID Partition Table, since as far as I know it's the default and best. Does it make a difference to Time Machine which one is used?

As I said in the question, if I reboot it works once and then stops again. However, rebooting is pretty inconvenient - and OSX isn't Windows where "just reboot" is an expected answer :p
