I'm trying to send a Powerpoint file to a client, and their corporate security settings are making things difficult. The file is too big to email, even if I split it into fewer slides. Their security prevents them from downloading a file from Dropbox (and presumably similar services). Their email server also blocks zip attachments. [more inside]

I have a slideshow with 4 sections named "CurrentSection", "NextSection", "AfterNextSection", and "AfterAfterNextSection". The slideshow is viewed repeatedly but also irregularly (sometimes multiple times per week and sometimes weeks in-between). After each slide is viewed and discussed, I need to be able to assign the slide to a different section. (A slide's section determines how soon it will be viewed again, as explained below.)

But recently in a podcast, several people commented that for conferences, it is mandatory that slides use white for the background to enhance the legibility. On this previous question, the commented used white text on an almost black background. Should I reformat my slides to use a white background ?

Can a netbook effectively run Powerpoint? If so, any recommendations? The primary use would be regular ol' netbook tasks (browsing the net, email). However, as an attorney, I also occasionally need a laptop to display Powerpoint slides via the courtroom's newfangled electronic display system (through the VGA port). Will a netbook be able to do this in a passably quick manner with an older version of Powerpoint / a similar program? With added RAM? Please justify my purchase of a $350 toy.
I need to do a powerpoint about gun trafficking in Colombia. First of all, how do I get the powerpoint to go to the next slide automatically after a certain period of time after one slide is shown, and how do I incorporate music into the slide show? Secondly, can anybody point me to any useful charts/graphs/pictures on the web? I found this online pdf U.N. report that was really helpful but unfortunately I couldn't save or copy and paste any of the graphs as they were part of the text. Help is greatly needed and appreciated.

I used to be able to insert animated gifs into Powerpoint and have them run when I clicked on them. Now the only way I can get them to work (following Powerpoint's own instructions) is to insert them as objects that when clicked, open in Window's "Picture and Fax viewer". Surely there's a better way? I want to make an entertaining presentation for undergraduates, not look like an old fogy who can't use new technology.

Using Open Office Impress...need a little help with making a navigation bar. I have all the slides ready, just can't figure out how to add a visible nav bar with the usual buttons or arrows ie: First, Previous, Next, and Last. I can make it so that when anyone clicks, the next slide appears, but I would like to dress it up a bit if possible. BONUS : Understand that I've never used this, or PP before...and I'm kinda dumb.
