# On your mac, make sure the USB hard drive is HFS+ (The better filesystems are more annoying to work with on Mac), with the appropriate permissions.
# In terminal write: "chmod 777 /Volumes/Time\ Machine && ls -l /Volumes" (Replace "Time\ Machine" with whatever your drive is called)
# You can connect the drive to your pi now.
#update system
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
#read hfs+ filesystem (the one OSX & Mac OS uses)
sudo apt-get install hfsprogs hfsplus
#install, make, and build netatalk and it's dependencies. This is so we can connect to the pi via bonjour.
