comment Why is it not possible to use the “cut” command to manipulate a file in the Finder?
Sadly Apple has locked down so much that TotalFinder has decided to call it quits as of El Capitan. Really sad because TotalFinder was my favorite Mac app. Damn you Apple. :-(

comment Can I delete /private/var/folders/bf/?
Are you sure? I'm finding many other sources on the web saying that if you delete /var/folders/zz/ it won't boot normally and you have to recreate the zz subdirectory using low level mount commands (that I did not try to fully understand.)

comment Can Time Machine back up to an external HD connected to another Mac?
By "planets aligning" I simply meant that it only works when no special cases exist. Was I using hyperbole? Yes.

This apparently only works when all the planets are in alignment. @stuffe's answer below is the Apple-tastic solution when this approach doesn't work.

You so ROCK! Thanks, this is EXACTLY the answer. Every other 20 places on the web keep talking about using tmutil and using afp://... and unsupported NAS etc. and no matter what I did I still got errors. Yes I have the Server.app and as soon as I read your comment, problem solved. THANKS!!!

@Steve - I really hope my pain can help you minimize your pain. Show everyone at Apple and AT&T this page, maybe? BTW, the replacement iPad they gave me has been working great (but I hope my saying so doesn't jinx it! :-)
