Just as it says... I've decided to return to Tiger after Leopard's almost-insistence on consistently letting me down (Airport dropout every 30 seconds, poor decisions regarding Stacks and Finder view behavior, various tiny bugs and idiocies). Amazingly (and as I expected, somehow...) upgrading an install of Tiger up to 10.4.9 (the version before people started reporting the 'airport bug') gives the same computer, in the same room, on the same network a suddenly-flawless wireless connection-- as well as fixing most of my annoyances with Leopard simply by not being Leopard (sad, but true). That said, I've got one big problem... Time Machine backed up my files, since naturally I used it. I knew that Time Machine's work was accessible in the Finder, and figured hey--no big deal, I can just drag the things I want to put back. It doesn't seem to work that way, though, because everything is an alias to (apparently) things in an invisible folder. All I need to be able to do is copy various folders back to the internal drive-- I don't need or want a full restore. Is it just a matter of getting these aliases resolved (ie. making the folder visible), or is there a better way of getting at my files?
