A miscellany is defined as a "collection of various pieces of writing by different authors", but it has come to mean something "Of items gathered or considered together of various types or from different sources" or "a collection or group composed of members or elements of different kinds". The word "miscellaneous" comes from the Latin word "miscere", meaning "to mix." You might have heard the expression "a mixed bag," which applies when you don't quite know what you're going to get. More commonly, a miscellaneous group is made up of an odd group of things that don't fit anywhere else.

There should be a log out option here under the email address. I only took one action and cleared the cache on Fire Fox earlier today.

We were given a Samsung TV 50 inch for parts only. They said a repair shop told them the TV needed a new brain. Their cost of course was high but she found the part online for under $30. So, what is the brain of such a flat screen TV - it's name. Model UN50H5201 if we might find a photo of the inside of the unit. Thanks.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering how I might can directly speak with a representative of PayPal either via telephone or live online chat.  The number I have of 888-221-1161 is an automated service, however, I prefer to talk directly with someone due to the complex nature of my issue.  That said, if someone could help me out with this question, it will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           This question is going to be a bit awkward to bring up, but, I must do it for peace of mine.  Basically, I am wondering if someone could check to determine the legitimacy and credibility of a website called hupstore.com.   The reason I am needing this online site checked out is because of their unresponsiveness to my email and online site inquiries regarding a purchase made on January 22, 2020.  I do have an invoice printed out from this transaction with an order number of 7915 if this can possibly help to check on its status.  I do not want to follow up with my credit card company just in case I might be overreacting to this situation.  That said, I prefer to get any advice or recommendations from people here before taking any further measures.

            Thanks in advance for any attention and feedback given to this concern.  I look forward to hearing back from everyone.

Looking for easier-to-read fonts for my Note 8.  The fonts on the Samsung Store are $1.90 for me in the US.  Are there other ways to get fonts for my phone for less?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I read a quote the other day which goes like this.  "Loneliness is your soul wanting to make friends with itself".  This quote really is eye-catching but  I am unsure what conclusions to draw from it.  That said, could someone share some thoughts regarding possible interpretations of this quote?  

        Thank you

Drainage issue. There are places in this standing rain water as deep as 13 inches below the level of the sidewalk. The water can not escape. It pushes sideways into the back yard of one resident and within 3 feet of their back steps. On our end it pushes up to the tires on our car. I put 1000 pounds of dirt, then pavers three deep, then railroad ties to try to create a dam of sorts where the water was entering our yard.
We see a video of someone who dug under the sidewalk and then drilled a 3 inch diameter hole so water would have a way out of their property.

For those who live in the USA and may know what the laws are on drilling a hole in a concrete curb, what are the rules in your part of the USA?

Here are photos and we've been to the storm water department at the city office and they do nothing, From their website their goal is to locate rain water that can not escape except to go down into the ground. Our home owners insurance does not cover sink holes. The property owner refuses to add dump truck loads of dirt. As it rains it gets worse and worse and erosion continues. The city says they can not force the property owner to do anything.
Smart people say the city needs to install a french drain under the sidewalk to tie in with the main drainage pipe under the street.

At this point we are considering digging under the sidewalk and then drill a hole in the curb all depending on the rules on drilling such a hole.
No we have not gotten permission to do so …

What sources can be utilized to stay current with developments in automotive systems such as hybrid, electric, self-driven, and Advance Drive Assist Systems(ADAS) ?

What sources can be used to learn previous and current automotive systems such as gasoline cars?

If Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers(IEEE) and Society of Automotive Engineers(SAE) are good learning resources, how to filter relevant information from these sources?

Please provide information relevant to Electrical, Electronic, and Computer Engineers.

My first idea was a candle snuffer and I was told unlikely due to the open spaces around the side. It's made of copper and looking carefully at the stem of the item I see zero evidence that the end was broken off of some other object. What is it? Thanks.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           I am wondering if the classic game show, Family Feud, is made for PlayStation 4 or PS4.  If so, could someone provide an online link to it so I can download it directly onto my PS4 console?  

          Thank you.

We are getting different shades of the same paint color from the same can using the same roller on the same day. That can be seen in photo number one. I painted that area today to finish using was was left in the can. As you can see after it dried we have two tones. I painted that area because the first time that wall was painted we had two shades from the same can.
The other photo shows a 6 foot area that was given a second coat because it needed a second coat. There you can see the area with two coats is darker. Each of the three gallons of paint were purchased separately using the same sticker for the correct amounts of black and white paint to get the desired color which is "appealing gray." Why do we get two shades out of the same can once they dry? And why is the shade from one can different than the previous can when both were mixed according to the way they should be to get that shade of gray.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

         I have a friend who says that she is not religious and does not believe in God, but, yet, she is spiritual and prays each day.  That said, I wonder what the distinction is between being religious and spiritual.    I always thought they go hand in hand with one another.

         Any shared views or thoughts on this question will be appreciated.

          Thank you

We don't know if the account is a savings account, or IRA, or other. It's not a checking account. A family member is trying to hide financial assets from another family member. By accident a document was handed to us and the name of the financial institution was Wells Fargo. Wells may or may not not have IRA's or other non checking non savings accounts.  But I would think the do have higher interest earning accounts. The document showed interest to date but we did not know the date of the statement. Maybe it was the December statement or maybe interest to date on an earlier statement.

Assume it was the December statement and the interest earned was $150.
Can you tell us the principal in that account be it savings or IRA?

I'm not up to date on savings account rates or rates on IRA's. Wells Fargo may have locations outside the USA. The account in question is in the USA.

I think there is a chance (?) it's an account earning more interest than a simple savings account. I have a savings account (and I know the balance) and my interest for the year 2019 was not even close to 1/3  of $150 suggesting that this person's account may be very large to have earned $150 over a year with a chance the $150 interest earned was for a shorted period than a year, making the size of the account to be even larger. Thanks.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

             After reading this scientific article about ancient viruses discovered in a glacier, https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/pkebx9/scientists-found-ancient-never-before-seen-viruses-in-a-glacier?utm_campaign=sharebutton&fbclid=IwAR2GPOsedASqwBKRwFpx_KJml5UtmGgam8lKvjB89GX6DXvzErXJP-qMH4E, a question came to mind which was not addressed in it.  Basically, I am wondering what the life expectancy or longevity is for viruses.  If they have an infinite life expectancy from being preserved in sheets of ice, what would happen if climate changed melted this ice harboring these unknown pathogens which are tens perhaps hundreds of thousands years old and they get released into the environment?  To me, it seems logical that all living organisms, including viruses, have a life expectancy.  But, I might be wrong on this count.  What does everyone else think on this topic?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          I have a personal situation for which I am confident someone on EE will be able to help me with.  Basically, I have a special boss who has been more like a best friend through the 2019 year.  That said, I wish to purchase a special wall hanging plaque for this special person.  However, my mind is a complete blank and I do not know exactly what to say on this wall plaque.  That said, I am wondering if there is a place I can go to online which has plaques with prewritten messages but will allow the name of the individual and year to be inserted.  

           Any direction or guidance that can be given in response to this question will be greatly appreciated.  If more clarification or details relating to my goal is needed, please feel free to let me know and I will get right back with everyone.  

            Thank you

I have a file containing 50 or 60 mp3 tracks. I need to manually add a new field in the MP3Tag working screen when the file is loaded, so that I can physically enter a specific number....but I can't seem to use MP3Tag's usually easy to use controls to create a column, name it, and do the work.

What am I missing?

Here are two images. One is a layout for a kitchen cabinet top. The other shows the existing top with has a 3.5 high and 1 inch thick board along the back. The layout is 3D I assume. What program can be used to add this board that runs along the back to the layout photo?
I'd go with a different color than the yellow so the counter top maker can see the back board. >> And with the added it needs to run along the back and flush against the bottom of the window as they have the window shown in the layout.
And in the layout I can just add text to show the height and thickness which are actually 3 9/16 x 7/8. I have Paint 3D but never done any 3D imaging. Thanks.

We have a Black and Decker handi saw model CHS6000 and the charger is input 120V 60hz 7.5w and the output is 9vac 100ma with model number.
Looking around for adapters I see numerous models. Some have different outputs. How flexible is the 100ma?

2D Grid Mock-Up

This concept contains an outdoor asphalt court area surrounded by grass, that could double as an area for people to gather, eat healthily, engage in commerce, etc.

The total asphalt surface should be 40' x 64' with court boundaries drawn in the center at 20' x 44'. The 10'  area around the drawn court boundaries could contain square tables strung together as well as separately and the area surrounding the asphalt surface would be grassy and could show people sitting in the grass.

I started this project by trying to mock it up using a 3d tool such as sketchup.com. What I liked about this approach was that I could make further edits using that tool as well as hand-off harder edits to others. It would all be online this way thus preventing the need to upload and download file changes.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get past even the smallest of hurdles using that and so assistance ether finding the right tool or getting this started in some way would be greatly appreciated.

Because the Win 8.1 did not start, even if I tried all kind of solutions, I arrived to Refresh your PC from blue troubleshooter boot screen as seen here:
https://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/6cde20/enable-boot-logging-in-windows-8/
I used the Win8.1 installation files on USB stick to do that refresh, which in the end solved the problem.
The main consequence is that I lost the list with the programs previous installed and of course their settings too.
1) What can I do now to recover those programs and their settings?
Is the only solution to use a dedicated recovery software that scans the SSD and tries to find the previous installed programs? If yes, what software do you recommend?
I have now on my desktop a .html file/list with Removed applications done by Windows during Refresh your PC time.
Program files folder are empty now.


2) The Windows folder is around 11GB now.
Is that normal?
What size should it be after new install?
Is 11GB size similar with a new installation or is it bigger because contains some files and settings from previous install?
But I have Windows.old folder. It is around 25GB.
I found next article:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17125/windows-8-restore-files-old-folder-upgrade
How would that help?
