    PlaceBar customizer still available for free? (2000)

    Is there still a free download of the PlaceBar customizer for Word 2000? I downloaded mine in November (or so) 2000 via a link in Woody's Office Watch # 5.44 (see below for actual text of offer). It was available for free as a demo of WOPR 2000. A colleague of mine at work would like to use it as well, but the free download seems to have gone bye-bye. Is it still available in any form? We use Windows NT 4.0 and Office 2000, FWIW.
    Any help would be, uh, helpful. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    It took a bit of digging, but the WOPR 2000 PlaceBar
    Customizer is back on our Web site, and it's still free,
    but I haven't mentioned it in print lately, so a lot of
    folks have forgotten about it. Let me correct that
    situation, post haste. Heh heh heh.
    Don't know about you, but that makes an enormous difference
    in how effectively I can use all the Office applications.

    Best of all, the WOPR PlaceBar Customizer is FREE, and it
    installs in a snap. Just drop by .

    Why do we do it? Because we care. OOOOPS. Sorry. I took
    that from a "Just Brakes" radio ad. Actually, we hand out
    the PlaceBar Customizer for free because it's slick as can
    be, it will make your life better - and it's a great way to
    show off one small part of WOPR 2000, "The number-one
    add-on to Microsoft Office." WOPR 2000 is FREE (is there an
    echo in here?) when you buy a copy of "Special Edition
    Using Microsoft Office 2000" by Ed Bott and, ahem, Woody

    Placebar customizer 2000 is no longer free, see the WOPR order form.
    Microsoft offer a free add-in which does a similar job.
