"par depis"

...I run into this expression a few times, e.g.

"Donc par depis, je suis venu ici pour ..." ou bien "je fais une mise a jour windows par depis" ou "Je tente par depis de me connecter", ou "quelqu'un qui oublie par depis", etc.

however, I am not sure about the translation - sounds like "in spite of", "nevertheless", "despite"... ? Is this right? I cannot really be sure about what it means...

help, quelqu'un?
