“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

@AnonymousAppDev: See my comment/question below about what Apple means about "stronger" signals.

What's all the talk about "With 802.11ac technology comes the intelligent, powerful beamforming antenna array. ... So your Wi‑Fi signal is stronger..."? Stronger than what? Not b/g/n.

Thanks. So "nothing really happened" is OK because nothing really needs to happen? Something must have happened.

And what, exactly did "erase" do when it (almost instantly) completed (with an error)? I've added some detail to the original question to clarify (I hope) what I'm looking for.

comment Trying to securely erase hard drive, but Security Options not available (Mavericks)
I've had a similar experience. I want to securely erase a FV-encrypted SSD, but my attempt failed quickly with an error (the option to do so was enabled), but the drive seemed to have been "erased" in some form anyway and I proceeded to reinstall OSX. I don't know where I am now though. Is this the correct procedure? Have I performed the "official" ("secure") erase procedure for a FV-encrypted SSD after all (error message and nearly instant completion notwithstanding)?

So, in short, the drive was FV encrypted and I've not stored or saved the key anywhere, I should be safe. And if I, on giving the machine to a family member, set up FV fresh for them, I should be very safe. Correct?
