comment How to make TextEdit open with a blank file by default?
And, to reverse this if necessary, I think the necessary incantation is defaults delete -g NSShowAppCentricOpenPanelInsteadOfUntitledFile

Just an idea: disconnect the replacement screen, and connect the MBP to an external monitor instead?

comment Time Machine initial backup way too large
My Mac (running 10.8... I don't see what version you are running?) shows a figure for "Estimated size of full backup" when I press the Options button in System Preferences > Time Machine. What is your figure there?

comment Can I still use the older Airport Utility 5.5.3 if I install the 6.0 version of Airport Utility?
@bmike I am still running 10.8.5 and AirPort Utility 5.6 works for me. md5 /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/A/Apple80211 prints f561c26a7121098e463b9196c401ed9e.

comment Why can't Time Machine see shared drive?
Have you seen pondini.org/TM/B1.html and pondini.org/TM/22.html? I don't see anything specific there that you seem to have missed, but I think poudini.org is a great resource for Time Machine troubleshooting and it's worth checking through the steps there.

I had a similar issue, which I described in this answer. Unfortunately, in my situation (different to yours: my AirPort is much older), I found that the drive enclosure itself was the cause of the incompatibility.
