5KPlayer installed Apple's Bonjour service without asking if it was OK to do so. When i ran the program, I got an alert from Windows firewall, asking what types of networks it could connect through. Not happy about either of those surprises.

I would suggest a free program called Unchecky for the problem Gil encountered. Many downloads today try to sneak unwanted toolbars or extras past you so a program like Unchecky that prevents that is very useful.

view
A Great Free Media Player And Youtube Downloader In One 10 months 1 day ago Gil Mensch

I'll take a look at Unchecky. However, I'm always alert for sneakware. The installer for 5KPlayer didn't offer a "custom" install and didn't give me an option to opt in or opt out of any part of the installation (other than accepting the EULA of course).

From Wikipedia: "Bonjour locates devices such as printers, other computers, and the services that those devices offer on a local network using multicast Domain Name System (mDNS) service records." So, Bonjour is part of 5KPlayer's feature set. My problem with Bonjour is that it wants to run all the time as a service, whether I'm using the app that needs it or not. My experience with Bonjour is that it, like the Adobe updater task, keeps trying to reactivate itself even though I want to deny it permission to run.

If I'd known ahead of time that 5KPlayer uses Bonjour, I wouldn't have installed it.

I was mainly interested in this program for the YouTube downloading capability. When I discovered that it doesn't download in my preferred format (AVI), I uninstalled it. That's when I discovered another negative surprise: 5KPlayer grabbed all the media file associations for itself, again without asking. After I uninstalled, I discovered my mp3, ogg, flac, mp4, avi, flv, et cetera, files are now unassociated with anything. Yes, of course I can reassociate them how I want, but that should not have been necessary. I'm quite happy with MediaMonkey as my music player and VLC as my video player. New apps should not automatically grab file extensions for themselves.

I suspect that, inevitably, any rules-based contest between a wo/man and a sufficiently-fast, programmable calculating machine will result in a win for the machine. Only for a little while longer will humans' "unexpected moves" (a function of our limited memories, imperfect recall and limited processing power, not to mention our imagination, 'soul/spirit' , insanity) pose real problems for our machines that play games with us.

Anyway, thanks for the further info.

Pivot tables are another great database like in Excel. PowerPivot is a free add-on from Microsoft that takes PivotTables to the next level. I think PowerPivot can combine tables but I've not tried as VLOOKUP and the occasional custom function have always worked for me.

I have to say that I'm a little surprised a website like this is being touted on Gizmo's.

Hello,

ExMerg author here. Your assumption regarding the commands is correct - let me explain. To provide functionalities like data merging, data are being processed on the server. Personally, I would also preffer client-side processing, but we're not yet there - web applications still have its limits. This is of course improving over time, and I really hope that future version of ExMerg will not require workbook upload.

Meanwhile, let me assure you that security is and will be top priority at ExMerg. We have no intention of threatinng the reputation of this service (which we love to develop) by any means - and as a Java developer with background from banking and corporate environments, I personally take care of the security related code.

If you would have any questions regarding the security or any other topic, feel free to contact us via our website.

Thank you for your feedback and best regards,

Hello,

ExMerg author here. Thank you for your feedback.

The development of ExMerg is being done in Slovakia, however the service is hosted at Amazon AWS cloud. Anyway, I think that this fact should not matter from the data-safety perspective - services are being developed and hosted all round the globe, and it's really not about the location, but rather about the people behind the service.

Regarding the sample data - these are being irreversibly obfuscated before any usage in our development environment.

I will not discuss ExMerg, but I want to say this:

1. Do you really think that VLOOKUP is so "notoriously complicated"? Strange opinion for the person who writes articles about Excel.

2. Few minutes ago, I read your another article - http://techsupportalert.com/content/best-photo-viewer-ive-seen-years-and...

@Neifer: I am not sure that getting aggressive or pointing at so called "lack of knowledge/experience" lead to any positive thinking. Of course we agree that we can disagree i.e differences of opinion should be encouraged, this is not my point. Moreover, I am not moderator in here and I do not want to be.
Anyhow, this being said, allow me to suggest friendly that statements like "You have any idea what you're talking about?" and others on alike tone, do not bring anything positive. In addition your English is good enough to understand the fact that questioning competence of anyone can not be considered quality arguments.

As long as your recognize that proceedings and conferences are not peer reviewed and should not carry the same weight as an article in a peer reviewed publication.

view
A Handy Tip To Help Find Useful Online Information 1 year 8 months ago NICKM

One thing I did learn from grad school when I got my MA: In many cases peer-review means that you must agree with the philosophy of the editorial board, or you won't get published. In many many cases this means that top-notch scholarly research with valid conclusions goes wanting. Peer-review can be indeed helpful, but you'd better understand the bias of those who sit on the editorial board. Many make the error in presuming that peer-review equals objective evaluation. Often, it is anything but.

My own impression of your post is that you do not discount presentations that are not peer-reviewed, but you feel that we should be suspicious of such publications. I would disagree - Take the presentation or paper on it's own merits and investigate on your own. Just because it's peer-reviewed, in many cases, means little. I have no ax to grind because I have never been published or turned down by various peer-review pubs. I have not tried nor do I care to be published in my field (counseling).

That's my 2 cents worth. Don't want to start a major debate or argument, just expressing my opinion...

Because VLC can't do any of this: http://vgy.me/lTahpa.png

Vlc is a player. Foobar is a player + manager + tag editor + advanced tools like taking tags from filename patterns, not to mention the UI and other functions like auto-filename that can be customized to a level I can barely explain if you're not a programmer (it boils down to patterns and format strings).

view
A Lean And Free Windows Music Player 7 months 2 weeks ago Faziri

It's nice that foobar gets some attention, but the article doesn't really do it justice... Foobar is way more than just a basic player, like what vlc and such would be. Its UI alone warrants an entire article. It's very much a thing for experts and one of the last few examples of good software in today's age of crapware. Of course, I don't blame the reviewer, I'm just putting it out there there's much more to be said for foobar than this.

1) Thanks Rob for all of these tips about available, but little known, free programs.

2) If one checks around the web and talks to music hounds--as I have been doing for the past 12 months, foobar 2000 has a reputation for being very complicated to set up correctly and is rather high maintenance. Furthermore, many times it requires searching out and installing a special plugin in order for it to play a certain format. On the plus side it is often one of only two or three programs that can play (usually with a special plugin) certain more obscure formats such as DSD types.

Just a heads-up so others will know.

I've used Foobar2000 for years and it would take a major earthquake to get me to change. It does need some setting up and it's a bit quirky in the way it does it, but some spectacular results can be achieved. Once set up, it's definitely not high maintenance.
A few points that may be of interest:
1) As is the case with some other software packages, you may need to tell it where your copy of LAME is installed to play or rip mp3s. Ditto other codecs, such as FLAC.
2) It includes a very effective and fast ripper for any format whose codec you have installed.
3) It does play by directory, as well as by album/artist/genre/year, provided the necessary data is present in tags.
4) There is a huge range of plugins and extensions available from Hydrogenaudio. Some, like lyrics display are very simple to install and use; others are more esoteric.
5) There are a number of good android control apps available (notably FoobarCon). Once foobar is running you can control playlists etc. via your phone or tablet.
6) Windows only, sadly. I'd love a native Linux version.
7) Actively developed and supported - I think I first used it on XP and it's still going strong. Latest version 2 Nov 2015.

I only use whatsApp because some of my adult children live half way around the world, I refuse to use Messenger which was the one prior to that that they preferred to use- phew!
However from the time I knew FB acquired WA Ive been using it less and less and wanting something totally unconnected with Google, FB et al.
The trouble isnt finding one so much as trying to get family who are quite happy with the convenience and so-called encription of WhatsApp that they show little to no interest in movinng on:/
People just get lazy about actively pursuing 'safer' ( hopefully!), alternatives even though they often complain about the obvious intrusiveness etc of most of the stock IM apps.
I myself admit it becomes tedious sometimes when you finally find something that delivers on the requirements you're looking for but sooner or later gets picked up by the big multi billion $ companies and becomes just another like the rest of your blacklisted ones.
My want of my legal rights to privacy is still more important to me so I soldier on no matter what.
I just wish my family/friends werent mostly the 'bury the head in the sand' types who say that 'it's too late now anyway'. They do have a point however that doesn't take into account other very serious privacy invasion issues that we will be dealing with in the very near future!
I seriously don't see how WhatsApp can be seriously offered on techsupportalert as an alternative IM in this day and age, but that's just my opinion!

A New Free Windows Anti-Malware Suite 1 year 2 months ago Remah It's hard to know how good the antivirus is without trying it. But Tencent Holdings is in the top ten Internet companies and might still be bigger (by market capitalization) than FaceBook. They have many products and own some big software and sites like the largest online game, League of Legends. On the one hand, they've had a lot of success copying products and services that already exist. Yet they seem to have some positive features like a link on their website for reporting illegal behavior by their corporations. The Qihoo 360IS antivirus, based on the BitDefender engine, was also "a new and unknown "security" program based out of China". It has turned out to be a success and a good product. In China, the Chinese version has helped Qihoo to gain market share from Baidu and other large Chinese sites so those competitors are also producing anti-virus products. I'm not sure if that is why Tencent now have an English-language antivirus but they're likely to make a better job of it than the mediocre Baidu antivirus which also uses the Avira engine. view
