comment Make Microsoft Word change number literals to spellings?
writing a script to populate hundreds or thousands of entries into the file would be a reasonable option I suppose; assuming that the file getting huge doesn't end up causing performance issues anyway. That said your KB article is only for office 95/97. Searching on my computer I found 4 .acl files in he office12 tree but opening them in a text editor I don't think they're plain text.

comment Make Microsoft Word change number literals to spellings?
This option doesn't scale though. If you want to flag <10 it's not a problem. <100 becomes an exercise in tedium to implement. <1000 (or higher) is practically impossible due to the amount of time it would suck up.

comment Is there a Microsoft program for students to get Office free (or cheap)?
Last year's deal was $60 for 2007, but the page is currently only redirecting to the main MS Pro Accademic for $80 offer. I've included the link here in case it changes to offer the better price again later in the year. www.theultimatesteal.com

I'm pretty sure that the deal they offer once school starts is significantly better.

Depending on how locked down your system is you might be able to use the windows update website to upgrade to WMP12 after installing 11.

comment Outlook 2007: Gmail and POP3
Is your problem just outlook not being set to download message bodies for offline use automatically, or it refusing to let you do anything with imap folders when offline? I've configured outlook to do the former and can probably dig up the settings if needed. I've only had the latter happen once and have no idea what was different that day from my normal situation.

comment Transferring hard drive with bare install of XP between two computers?
Although it's not officially supported (and if botched will break your install) you can swap out a 1 processor HAL for a multi-processor HAL using tools that MS provides for driver developers. I've done it once after discovering my work laptop was imaged with the wrong HAL after I spend a few weeks installing and configuring all my software. forums.nvidia.com/lofiversion/index.php?t44294.html

You can run a dual core computer with a single core HAL. You won't get the benefit of the 2nd core though.

As far as vga support disappearing is concerned Dell's latitude E series docking station has 2 DVI-D ports and a DisplayPort. The only way to use an analog monitor is to plug directly to the laptop itself. The laptop also has a DP for more modern displays.
