comment Reinstalling OS X on a MacBook with dead hard drive and no recovery disc
Snow Leopard doesn't ask for a serial number when you're installing it. You'll need a generic Snow Leopard (or Leopard) install disc, though, not one for a specific Mac. The discs that ship with a Mac are tied to that model and won't install on any other model. This does mean that you could find someone who has the exact same Mac that you do and use their install media, which is probably going to be more difficult than anything else. That's why I suggested going to the Apple Store and seeing if they'll install the original OS onto your MacBook.

comment One Note for Mac Images not Showing
Hmm, interesting, I can successfully import images in each of the ways that you've listed here. I tried various sizes of images and can't replicate the issue that you're experiencing.

comment Outlook DB corruption
My guess is that your corporate Exchange server uses different settings when connected via your corporate network (including VPN) than it does otherwise, and that your Exchange server isn't giving the right auto-discover settings for those two settings. You're going to have to talk to your Exchange administrator to get this resolved.

What happens if you delete your existing Exchange account in Outlook, connect to the VPN, and re-create it?

comment Does OSX Mavericks prevent third party software from having a “Save as” option?
I didn't have any issues, I just always believe in making sure that I've got a good backup when I upgrade. The time when you most need a backup is when you don't have one!

Don't forget to backup before you upgrade! :)
