comment Slackware: print horrible banner
FWIW in Debian Jessie the package sysvbanner has /usr/bin/banner with the behavior you expect, and the banner you don't like is /usr/bin/printerbanner in the package bsdmainutils.

comment Where do the words in /usr/share/dict/words come from?
From your wordlist link, I clicked on wamerican then External resources: homepage and that might have some of the info you want (clicking through wbritish takes you to the same project). Some of the other dictionaries that can be referred to by wordlist come from other projects.

comment Removing white space using sed but skipping Date-Time stamp
are you just trying to remove large sections of contiguous whitespace? Maybe 's/ */ /g' (space-space-star) or 's/ \+/ /g' to replace 2+ spaces with 1 would be "good enough"?

comment Outlook.com usage impeded in Linux
I recently had MS sign-in problems (on a different product) and needed a user-agent switcher to fool the site into serving me the right page (though I was using Chromium and needed to tell the server I was using Iceweasel). It's at least something you could try.
