comment Excel: Edit the XML inside an XLSX file
@whitequark: that is not correct - the contents are indeed deflated! Excel also reads 'zip' files where the contents are only stored, but if you save the same file again in Excel it gets compressed anyway. @nhinkle: zipping with 7-zip always worked for me regardless if I chose "store" or "normal-deflate" as the compression level.

comment Anyone using the ThinkPad fingerprint reader?
I second the problems with wet fingers. I always have problems if I try to use it directly after washing my hands. To be clear: I dry my hands after washing, so they are not actually wet but the little bit of soaking that takes place while washing is enough to cause problems with the reader. But the problem only lasts about a minute. After that it actually works like a charm.

comment How should I configure Mail.App and Google Mail?
What do you mean by "remains visible from Google Mail"? Is it still in the inbox in Google Mail? If not I think it already is working as advertised (as you are hiding the archive from imap client it surely disappears there) ;)

comment How can I avoid Excel reformatting the scientific notation numbers I enter?
I also think this is the only option. The reason is, that Excel stores only the value and not exactly how you entered it. So if you enter 8,23e15 or 8235e12 or any other representation of the same number is not important for what Excel stores. When editing Excel uses the representation it thinks fits best - you have no control over that.
