[PD] responsability / privacy

honestly, I'd be more afraid that someone might steal the mac or damage it physically (on purpose or by accident), so make sure that this can't happen. as a side effect, no one will be able to tinker with it either :-).

thanks for contributions !
course there is no keyboard nor mouse, just a mini mac headless in a box.
point is that i have to guarantee somehow that no geek can twist things easily physically on the mac, 
even if the guy has a screwdriver, for instance to steal images via GEM or whatever
being no hacker myself :)
(you know, society is getting more and more paranoid…)

 if you could start your patch with pd -nogui flag, patches would no be visible, so afaik not to be editable anymore.

I will make an installation in a public space soon where the machine (mac) will be somehow accessible :
for responsibility and privacy reasons, i’d like to make it impossible to manipulate the patches
(first time i encounter this issue in my long usage of pd…)
Is there a way to lock everything ? compile or whatever ?
i mean once a patch is running, the mac is basically accessible, no ?
(session opened, mouse and keyboard operable, not talking about ethernet)
What i have been doing until now is run patches in public spaces tor theaters just as at home and that was fine, but won’t be ok this time
