Setting up a exchange server 2010. routing email though google apps for spam purposes only. I am now receiving emails but if I try to send an email it goes to the users sent items, then hours later I get a delayed message from exchange.

Background:  I'm working with a small school who is interested in bringing live text into their athletic streams.  The most cost effective yet easily editable solution for students is to use a Google Sheet.  The solution is great, but now they've evolved to wanting the "white" in the cell background to become transparent.

Question:  I'm working with OBS studio (https://obsproject.com/).  
I use a local Chrome browser source going to a Google Sheet as one of my media layers.   Works great.

The next thing I need to do is make the white background of a cell(s) to be transparent rather than the classic "white".  I've attempted a ChromaKey filter within OBS on the browser source.  Unfortunately the ChromaKey filter fails on the browser source.

Someone mentioned to use CSS and change the "white" to "transparent".  Maybe simply inspect modify the CSS in the local Chrome browser and the data may update using the modifications.  It's a long shot from my experience.

Is this something easily attainable to someone starting from scratch on the subject?
I need help figuring out how to quickly share a contact with a colleague. I get an e mail request for contact information. I would like to quickly insert the requested information into the reply and send it off. Instead, I have to do a search of google contacts, export the contact to a vcf file. download it to my desktop. Then attach it to the email as a separate file. then I can send it. What I really want to be able to do is to access my contacts list quickly copy the contact info to the clipboard and paste it into my reply email. Is there a way to do this?

Got a new computer and can't find a way to download Google Drive to my Windows X.  Has something else taken it's place?  If I can find the download program on my old computer to install it should I do that?  Kind of lost without the ability to drop docs into the Google Drive Folder that was on my old computer and have them show up on the Drive and was able to view them on any other device.  Thank you

Looking for a way to automatically add Google calendar events from a website that is filtered for my state.  This Website Events Page    

I have looked into IFTTT, and general google searches and have not found anything thus far.   I have IT scripting/automation background but have little experience in this realm.  Looking at the page through the developer tools in chrome, I didn't see an easy way to pull the data.

Is there a tool or way to pull this data, perhaps coupled with an online tool such as IFTTTT, that would create /update events in a secondary calendar in google?
I work as a translator, and sometimes a project contains a lot of difficult terms so I have to lookup each and every term in the documents. But when even Google searches don't render any results or only a few pages, it's really difficult to find a translation for such terms. Almost always in these cases, it's a technical handbok for some kind of machinery. Today I translate several handbooks for crushers, feeders and screens (cone crusher, jaw crusher, huck bolted inclined screen, scalping screen and a vibrating grizzly feeder).

So I was thinking of this solution, if it's viable:

I have a list of these difficult terms that don't give any search results on my national Google.se (advanced search settings: display results in my language Swedish) and can't find anything in my technical electronic dictionaries either. The best now would be if I could find other documents (pdfs, word documents etc.) and also websites in a selection of languages (I am proficient in German, Spanish, Italian, French, Norwegian and Danish) for these terms in this list by doing a deep web search.

Also, if I could find exhaustive definition context for these terms on English websites and in documents in English. The best is of course a comprehensive technical dictionary, but the one I found, McGraw-Hill Multimedia Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, seems to be out of stock everywhere.

But perhaps the most effective way would be to search for the hyperonym of all these terms in my term …

Push Google Chrome using BatchPatch.  I'm using BatchPatch to deploy updates, I can't seem to figure out how to do a silent installation of Google Chrome.
I was using Microsoft Streets & Trips for many years, and now that it's defunct I need a standalone software program that I can use for creating routes on maps to plan trips, etc.  MS Streets & Trips was excellent for that, and I don't see how Google Maps or Bing can let me place "pins" (or waypoints) on a street map and have the map plan the best route with details such as distance, time, etc.  Do you know of a replacement program?


Outlook.office365.com issue with typing in specifik fields.

I'm having a problem with 1 specific user.
The user cant click on "from", "to", "Cc", "Bcc" og "Subject" fields when typing a new mail.
She can tab and shift-tab between them, and it works, but it is a bit glitchy.

Altso.... Her signature isn't shown, as she is writing the e-mail. But its there when the mail is sent, and she can see the signature in "send items".

She is using af MAC, we have testet Safari, Google Chome and Firefox - same issue on every browser.
We have also logged into her mail, on my computer (PC), same problem in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, ON MY computer - same thing happens.
When i log in to my profile, we can click in the fields and everything works as wished - on both computers.

Any ideas?

I hope i explained myself alright.

I would like to use online "Map" service like Google Earth, Google Map, and etc. in order to display about 1000 customer locations on the map.
It is for the internal use, so I do not want to share the data on public, so that our sales staffs can use the tool for analyzing the route or location to set their sales strategies.

Could you share with me how to accomplish it and what are the actual steps?

Thank you,

I am trying to calculate the number of marker points in a google map polygon

I believe my problem is not passing the the two arrays poly and polytest to the addpolypoints function.  The assignment for these are made under function "mapClick"  Any advice?

google.maps.event.addListener(map, 'rightclick', addPolyPoints);
 google.maps.event.addListener(map, "click", mapClick);

google.maps.event.addDomListener(window, "load", initialize);

function mapClick(evt) {
  // map.clearOverlays();
  circleMarkers = Array();
  if (!centerMarker) {
    centerMarker = new google.maps.Marker({
      position: evt.latLng,
      map: map

  } else {
  searchPoints = getCirclePoints(evt.latLng, distToDrive);
  drivePolyPoints = Array();
  var poly = drivepolygon.getPath();
	 var polytest=drivepolygon; 

function getCirclePoints(center, radius) {
  var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
  var circlePoints = Array();
  var searchPoints = Array();
  with(Math) {
    var rLat = (radius / 3963.189) * (180 / PI); // miles
    var rLng = rLat / cos(center.lat() * (PI / 180));
    for (var a = 0; a < 361; a++) {
      var aRad = a * (PI / 180);
      var x = center.lng() + (rLng * cos(aRad));
      var y = center.lat() + (rLat * sin(aRad));

Need examples of best basic JSON-LD schema information for website homepage.  What looks good?  Just dipping my toe into the JSON water.  Getting penalized by Google a bit now.  Want just to cover the basics.  Will customize once I know more.  Just enough to pass the bar, as it were.

Need a few homepage examples - site I could see, please.  Sites with a few pages / sections to them.

For what its worth, in looking around and getting more confused, here's what I've seen.  These are obviously huge sites.  Looked at them for proper structure.  Hoping to find a short set of must haves from you friends and on a site that codes them well to get me out of the gate.

There is a domain I'd like for one of my projects, but when I go there, it is just a pointer to another site that has nothing to do with my domain name.

I once bought a domain for a project I might do, and someone in Australia abducted it from me. Must have been a trademark.

How do I file a trademark so I can usurp this person and get my domain, so that I can kick these people aside? Is that it? A trademark? I doubt they have one. Can I check it safely?
I have just bought a Nokia 7+ running on Android One (currently Oreo) to replace my Samsung Galaxy S5 and I am trying to set up Contacts with frustrating results.
  • First I added my accounts including myname@outlook.com which is the account I use for most emails and where I sync my contact list
  • Next I tried to sync the contacts but only one contact succeeded in syncing.
  • I thought that maybe I needed to prime my phone so I imported the contacts to my phone (outlook.com account) using a csv file and about 400 imported fine
  • When I checked my PC my contact list had now doubled - my phone had synced the contacts I had added and duplicated them
  • I then deleted duplicates from my PC getting it back to 400 odd numbers again
  • When I checked the phone it is now up to over 1100 numbers - with many triples

I am assuming that Google would not allow me to select my outlook.com account if it wasn't capable of syncing with it, and the fact that my 400 contacts has now miraculously grown to over 1100 means that it is syncing somehow, but I don't understand how it's working. Can anyone shed any insights into what I am doing wrong?
What apps or methods exist that will allow me to have a second phone number assigned to my iPhone (similar to Google Voice)?

I am a Sprint PCS subscriber and really liked the Google Voice service that replaced the iPhone phone number with my Google voice phone number everytime that I made a call using my iPhone. My Google Voice phone number would always show on other people's caller ID whenever I would call them.

However, this Google voice integration with my Sprint PCS service ended on 6/1/18 due to security upgrades and Google not producing an updated app.

So I'm currently looking for a replacement app or service I can subscribe to that will display an alternate phone number every time that I make an outgoing phone call using my iPhone X.

What apps or services are currently available that will allow this to be done?
