^ I did mention 'physical product' in my first post in this thread, whether or not physical product is the exception or the rule for kickstarter is not really relevant.
As far as supply chain goes I, personally, do want every point from manufacturer to the end platform provider/seller/etc to be somewhat responsible for the physical product delivered to me. I would expect that from third part sellers on Amazon, ebay ... the same way I would expect it from brick and mortar places. Example: The car dealer has nothing to do with creating the car (car dealerships are not owned by the car manufacturer anywhere I have lived...) but I am not taking back my car to Toyota HQ but to the dealer.

On the issue of delivering a physical product we should be very careful if we are willing to let kickstarter (or anybody else) off the hook. Dangerous path here.
But kickstarter isn't delivering a physical product.  The campaign organizer is.  And should be held to some sort of accountability.  Especially if he just disappeared.

Ceding accountability anywhere in the supply chain is a slippery slope that will be exploited, if not by kickstarter then by another.

How is kickstarter part of the supply chain?

How do you not consider it? By that logic you can never complain to ebay

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

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
122  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.
123  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?
