    Why am I having such an incredibly hard time with my Macs? It seems like everything that I have tried to do with them lately leads to a glitch, bug and road-block.
    I tried to partition a new 2TB external drive into several volumes and all I get are Disk Utility errors that the 'partition map is too small.. Then I wanted to clone a volume so I would have a secondary place to test out Serra, but that to0 was stopped in its tracks by a FileVault error.
    What's the point?

    There's no point. Throw it in the fire.

    Everyone else is able to maintain multiple systems and virtual machines and networks and I am just taking one step forward and two steps back.
    No sooner did I get finished setting-up a used AirPort Extreme - and it died less than a week later.
    Why?

    What could I have done wrong that had the APE running fine for a few days, and then has it blinking amber and smelling slightly burnt??? I actually think it might have gotten some sort of surge through the cable line, because it coincided with a Comcast outage.

    Why do they break my computer stuff? How do I make them go away?

    Hard to say what could cause this. Hubris? Unwise diet? Mistreatment of the neighborhood weasels?

    They seek rare earth minerals; they fear lavender.
