comment Can the Finder Dock be fixed to show all icons of aliases instead of some?
I have way too many apps for Launchpad to be useful. I also have a special folder in the dock for each of my kids which just has the stuff they're interested in.

Yes, it persists after I reboot. I just discovered that if I drag the folder out of the Dock to remove it, then I drag it from the Finder back into the dock, the icons start appearing.

comment Can't upgrade to 10.7.2 over a previous iCloud beta seed
I think you don't understand what I've done. I ran iCloud betas, which are 10.7.2 betas. There were no reversioners with those betas--the reversioner was introduced after I lost access to beta seeds. Then I ran reversioner that comes with a later version of the iCloud beta. It's exactly what anyone would have done if they installed early, but not later, betas.

@cksum, I didn't apply any core updates--System Update wouldn't install them because I hadn't run the reversioner. And I didn't go back to a previous version. In the end, I think I did exactly what someone with access to all the betas would have done--installed previous betas, ran the reversioner, then ran a normal system updater.

Thanks for the reversioner tip, @cksum. System not destroyed.

I installed beta versions before Lion was released, then installed Lion from the App Store. Now that I look at it, I also don't see the 10.7.1 update.
