How To Make Time Machine Call You Daddy

Time Machine won't let you delete its backups, even as sudo, unless you do this:

sudo fsaclctl -p /Volumes/ -d

Correction: This just makes the motherfucker call you uncle, not daddy. It still gives Operation not permitted errors all over the place. Doing rm -rf * after fixing the ACL this way frees up gigs but still doesn't return control of your computer to you. It's official - Apple is the new Microsoft.
