external hard drive

there was a time when i figured out how to play the solo to roundabout and my high school friends would gather round my basement room with coloured flood lights, velvet posters, incense and lots of pot and watch me play the solo in real time. thank you very much but now what makes me feel accomplished is finding my external hard drive all a fritz…..and then running a utility program on my mac, guessing which things to check off and which to not check off

Initialize Y/N


Wipe out all data Y/N


and ….presto it all works again. where are my stoned high school pals to applaud? gone to their respective mortgages and cosmetic surgeries.
