I use aeberbach as my account name at twitter and hotmail (I could hardly get any more spam there so why not...)

If the drive is mounted, just use the chown command - "sudo chown -R <current username> *" in "/Volumes/<time machine drive name>" - no need to mess around with recreating users.

The stop sign is a permission issue. Is your current user an administrator? I would expect the OS to ask for an administrator's password, then allow access. If not, change the permissions - superuser.com/a/430044/39503 is a good answer.

comment Mac Mini 2011 - monitor wakes up messed up
I have a similar issue with a Dell 2713HM and late 2009 mini, through the Apple display port->dual-link DVI adapter. Though the adapter is the latest version 1.03 (was replaced at Apple store) it still seems to have issues. In my case it occasionally boots up at 800x720 resolution... If you are also using the dual-link adapter I think that's just the way it is.

comment Is there a quick way to lock my Mac?
The hot corner is a great quick way to do it. There are one or two pranksters in my office; flicking to the hot corner restricts their options to the old sticky tape on the mouse sensor trick, rather than changing acceleration curves or inverting colors etc...
