If you load a GIF image, you likely have a paletted image. Make sure to change it to RGB first with: Image → Mode → RGB.

The way 'around' it is to open multiple copies of Excel, one per worksheet. This is really annoying, but there is no other way.

On Mac OS X, tac does not exist, but you can use tail -r to the same effect: :%!tail -r This also works nicely for visual mode: :'<,'>!tail -r Excerpt from tail(1)'s manpage: The -r option causes the input to be displayed in reverse order, by line. Additionally, this option changes the meaning of the -b, -c and -n options. When the -r ...

Select the cells, type the data and then press enter while keeping the alt key pressed. Works on my system (Mac, OO 3.2), maybe the modifier key is different on different systems. In Excel on Windows the modifier key is ctrl.

I've used Windows Live Movie Maker for a while, and am 99.99% sure that it doesn't provide the ability to crop frames in a movie. VirtualDub (here) I've heard is a decent free video editor that can be used to crop videos (e.g. to remove those black bars and to rotate frames).

VLC also lets you add (or subtract) subtitle delay so you can sync them up while viewing. Ctrl-H and Ctrl-J shift the delay by 50ms in either direction. SRT files are basic text files, so once you've found an offset that looks right in VLC, use perl or sed (or your favorite scripting language) to add that offset to all the timecodes in the file. (Or try ...

I heart IrfanView. Although for Gnome, I use gthumb as my Linux equivalent. It doesn't have the myriad of swiss-tools that IV has, but quality scaling, cropping and color adjustment suits me well enough. I do love how gthumb imports photos from my camera :D
