Sorry for misunderstanding, however StandaloneStack does take a user specified folder and shows its content in a 'grid' on the desktop

Is StandaloneStack http://www.chrisnsoft.com/standalonestack closer to what you need?

The alternative still needs a lot of work. It may be that all of the issues are fixable by googling but a user turning a computer on shouldn't need to google basic features and/or requirements ... yep I am going off topic  embarassed

Microsoft has also stopped providing Microsoft Security Essentials for download on Windows XP. If you already have Microsoft Security Essentials installed, you will continue to receive antimalware signature updates for a limited time

The 'limited time' is apparently 15 months

Thanks for the help/suggestions, will try/test them.

Pivot tables may be doable but I am not an expert. Not exactly a transpose.

@IainB I should post there, that's true. Not sure what to search for though, I mean what would be the search query, so yes post it is.
@AndyM. One time yes. ~40k rows.

I am trying to work with an Excel file (actually using Libreoffice) that is an export of a website content database. Since I am not even sure how to explain the problem I made a small version of what I am trying to do. The real file has many more records of course.

This is what I have:

This is what I need:

Any ideas on how I can do this?

Thanks, yes its own firmware supports MAC and IP restrictions similar to that. If all (software on) XP options fail I will go that route thumbs up
11  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Re: Firewalls and LAN on: March 26, 2014, 02:20:26 PM
I suppose the answer to that is ... not really, other than I want it to be as if it's offline. I don't want to manage it, for example ignore any software updates checks and request.
12  Main Area and Open Discussion / General Software Discussion / Firewalls and LAN on: March 26, 2014, 01:37:10 PM
I am trying to set up my XP to use internally within the home network, not for file and printer sharing but screen sharing to access the XP desktop (see Teamviewer in next paragraph). My set up is typical, router (Linksys E2000) to computers.

My reasoning for this is mainly to use Teamviewer's LAN feature (I also tested this with Dukto, a LAN file sharing software).

I thought this would be best served with something for XP as opposed to going into the router settings (Mac blocking, etc.) I came across posts that suggested changing the default gateway on the PC to a 'wrong' 0.0.0.0 address and I guess this is ok. But then I thought I would find lightweight firewalls that might be capable of blocking off the internet and leaving other communication open.

Found PrivateFirewall and an old download of Sygate Personal Firewall that would match the needs (lightweight and XP compatible). They have switches to completely turn off the internet but this affects other processes, for example with Teamviewer set to exclusively accept LAN connections PrivateFirewall still blocks it because I think Teamviewer is still triggering a another process (ntskernl?). I have tried to set exceptions based on internal network (all of 192.168.x.x) and make sure every port and/or exe that Teamviewer (and Dukto) supposedly use to "Allow" and still nope.

I suppose I can use bulkier firewalls like Comodo and see, but ... anyone have any thoughts or ideas?

It is because it's main marketer had no interest in seeing anything but its own logo on their devices, extrapolate that way of thinking into other business decisions and Macs are exactly what he wanted.

You need to try Easy Screencast Recorder http://www.donationcoder....are/Mouser/esr/index.html, though it's not really meant for that task, I think

Thanks Jibz, Deozaan and everybody. Setting aside all other concerns (privacy, new notebooks, owning data etc.) I can confirm what Deozaan sees, so as long as the aforementioned concerns are acceptable this is a very good tool for notes on the go.

Still haven't seen any restriction so still confused by the original comment.... like I said it may be I have no clue smiley

Just synced my desktop notebook to Android and everything is there, I guess that's obvious.  Are they only stored in the cloud only, so this new OneNote won't function if the device(s) are offline (eventhough existing notebooks are synced pre-going offline)?

Yes, I definitely sound like I need an Internet 101 course Grin

Not trying to be funny, but I don't get it. No offline notes at all or only in certain cases (created on PC?) it won't be available offline? Colour me confused  embarassed

^ Installed this 'new' free OneNote on Win7 computer that had no Office/OneDrive (it had trial version of Office when computer was bought but that was uninstalled)
Just its Program Files folder:

Not one bit. Kickstarter should not be about established corporations, even though strictly speaking it wasn't them that started this campaign ... actress wanted the movie, etc.

24  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Re: Facebook likes? How? on: March 12, 2014, 09:58:38 AM
Thanks. A bit doubtful facebook apps are responsible, I had around a dozen and all except one were big, active company ones (contest entry, etc) and zero games. I removed most just in case. Will use Ghostery.
25  Main Area and Open Discussion / Living Room / Facebook likes? How? on: March 11, 2014, 07:53:49 PM
Over the last few days I began to notice that the Likes section in my facebook has likes that I didn't like, so to speak. I began to worry that my computer is compromised. I have checked every device* including android phone that I have with one or more of Malwarebytes, Avast and ESET online scanner. After seeing that they are clean (hoping so after using the aforementioned tools) I used the Linux machine to change my facebook password and made sure that I am logged out of Facebook everywhere. One day after doing that I log in again and noticed one of such likes again. After a bit of googling I guess I could have visited a comprised site, iframe hack(?), during that one day but I was logged out of Facebook for that day.

 huh

Any thoughts?

*Except the Linux Mint laptop
