Tech Talk / Re: Looking for Outlook Standalone Version

Are you saying your Excel sometimes slows to a crawl when you use formulas? Because something similar has been happening to me as well and itís terribly annoying.
No no
It has a bit of a lag or a latency related to the little helper popup / autocomplete formula thing. So if I press the tab key to accept the autocompleted formula suggestion, instead of Excel doing that, it actually closes the formula and moves to the next cell (because the formula suggestion autocomplete thing had in fact not finished popping up before I had pressed the tab key...). Whereas before that update, and now that I downgraded, its a seamless intuitive UX

Regarding Excel slowing to a crawl:
Chances are the workbook has become 'volatile', and at that point the workbook needs to be entirely recalculated on each change (whereas under normal circumstance Excel will 'know' that all the other calculations outside of the cell(s) affected by the change are remaining the same, and it will calculate only the affected cells). The easy solution is to turn calculation to 'manual' under the 'formulas' tab (but don't forget to recalculate then....). The ideal solution is to build the formulas in an efficient way for Excel...
Google around a bit on that maybe will find a solution.

I did notice that after downgrading to Excel 2013 last week I am seeing issues like that one more often, which I didn't have at all in the up to date versions....

this is in office online?
Nope it's in the newest desktop version
I recall there may always be differences between 365 and non 365 versions even if on newest though
Probably in Office online also

how about
I think I'll actually do that thanks

DId i miss something in excel?
Excel added a thing in the formulas (in the 365 newest version) which allows the output to spill over (automatically) into adjacent cells - along the lines of Google Docs formulas like FILTER, IMPORTRANGE, UNIQUE, and the like. Essentially, from looking at it quickly, it seems to turn all formulas by default into array formulas, with the @ character preface making the formula a non array regular formula (and you're not required to include the @ in fact, so really it's just making array formulas not require the traditional entry, or something like that).

On my computer the loading of the popups when typing in Excel became so slow that I would press tab to move forward in the formula and it would close the formula; and the tabs in Chrome started behaving weird.

The full installer should allow you to customize and choose to install only a single application, as in only outlook.
I'll try again, but I recall that the product did not include Outlook at all...

I'm looking if anyone can point me toward where to buy (or just download) Outlook as a standalone product, 2013 or 2016 or something.

I uninstalled Office 365 when they switched my Excel to the @ formula thing and my whole computer started lagging. I put on an old license of Office 2013, but for some reason it doesn't include Outlook



I'm not 100% sure how this works, but the coupon says 'Save an extra 40% on your first Subscribe & Save order.'

Price is $49.31 so that should be $29.59

Good luck

Alef Book is offering a their personalized Haggadah for free in print at home PDF format this year. Use for your family or school etc.
Use coupon PDFONLY

Disclaimer - this is my website. But it's free. We did it in honor of Coronavirus so posting here (move as necessary).

Last year this was a big hit in board book format. Thinking that at this point with schools closed many children will not be making their own Haggados (not even learning about Pesach...), many public sedarim are being cancelled, etc. Everyone's welcome to make as many as they want; send out to your community or school, print locally (we can help you), or for your own kids.

Feel free to message me with any questions.

We just ordered last night for Pesach.

$100 and use coupon WELCOME for $10 off

Best part is that for $35 you can get like 2 day shipping with a guaranteed delivery date (which is expensive for shipping but the total price is still cheaper than similar thing elsewhere)...

Even cheaper w/ 15% off S&S

Illy is recalling "8.8 ounce cans of illy coffee in medium, dark roast and decaf with no air valve on the bottom of the canister with a best by date of 10/2019, 11/2019, or 12/2019 printed on the bottom of the can", so you could get free coffee if you bought these

where was the first place you posted?
By again I mean after years of absence

Yep. Such a good price that it got me to post here again!
