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.

I have an old Nokia 2720. I had it when I was in Canada 10 years ago. I just charged it, and it took a charge, but obviously the sim card is no longer good. I plan to take it up on a trip to Canada and buy a prepaid SIM card so I have a Canadian phone while I'm there.

Is there any way to know if the phone is viable? If I take my Mexican SIM card and plug it in, will that work? Thanks, I'm not that good at cellphones, I don't use them much.

Prepare for the CompTIA Network+ exam by learning how to troubleshoot, configure, and manage both wired and wireless networks.

I need a loud portable bluetooth speaker and microphone combination that will also plug into my phone without bluetooth.

People that purchased this item also purchased the audio cable so I am not sure about it. It doesn't look like it does plug in according to the pictures.

Any thoughts on what might be a suitable candidate would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Expert,

I am looking for a monitor with speaker (smaller the better), desktop, and/or motherboard that will produce the greatest internal decibel sound and will work with Windows operating system.  Also this sound will not be used for music or bass but rather an alert (that i need to investigate something) and I would rather not have to deal with external speakers that could unplug themselves.  The loudest that I have found so far is the  Sceptre E246 F series monitor which has 2 10W speakers.

I am also open to any other other windows device that will fit this need,

Thank you!

Well I just bit the bullet and bought an 8" tablet called Amazon Fire which I really like because the case is made for it which makes it slimmer by design, and 8 inches with the case is not any bigger than most books at the bookstore. The 10" was too large for my liking.  I'll carry a laptop for those needs. It seemed to be the most popular one at Best Buy so I got it.

Now, it won't accept Android apps from Google Play, only Amazon Apps which is a deal-breaker for me, so I am off to hunting again.

Assistance in finding the best Google Android 8" tablet is greatly appreciated.

I have a client that wants to use a large (>48" ) touch screen monitor as part of his presentations. He is the COO of the company and is in charge of all the project managers.

It would be a large wall mounted unit. He wants to be able to have it access files on the company servers. He wants to be able to display an EXCEL spreadsheet, among other file types and be able to move 'cell' contents around as the projects move forward.

I would be able to set up the computer its connected to and and the monitor itself, but am unsure what would be a reliable product for this use case.

Can you recommend a monitor that would full fill these requirements?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

         I am wondering how I might use clickbank.com to supplement my income.  The income I would like to earn from it is small, at least $25 a week.  The videos on YouTube about clickbank.com makes this site sound too good to be true.  That said, perhaps someone reviewing this question can suggest or outline strategies which would be effective to use on clickbank.com.  

         In closing, I look forward to reviewing everyone's feedback regarding this question.  Through collaboration with other advisers who know by far more than me on the topic of online marketing, I am confident to come up with a strategic plan to meet my goal of earning a small supplemental income.

          Thank you

          George

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am needing help in hooking up and configuring a Sylvania Compact DVD Player (Model SDVD1041-DG1) to a 42" LG Flatscreen television.  I came close to having it working properly earlier today by selecting Component or Composite from the Input menu, but, the picture was in black and white instead of color.  I did have audio as well.  I am not sure what was the cause of the picture being in black and white instead of color.  Obviously, I did something wrong within the hookup and configuration.

          Any feedback given in reply to this question will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

         I am wondering if it is possible to monetize online content without the prerequisites of having a website, a lengthy blog, and related criteria which can take a great deal of time.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering at what point should we expect human androids to become mainstreamed within various industries of our society.  This question stems from the following link https://www.facebook.com/cnbcinternational/videos/749203651847444/  which is very thought provoking.  I am figuring we can not expect to see such an integration within our lifetime.

Hi,

Thanks

1)
The reason why I asked this, After having brief evaluation of the candidate profile and finds any merit in that, as a next step candidate is going be enrolled.
once they kick-off the processing typically follow a rule that, if the candidate doesn't succeed getting visa within defined timeframe they consider returning some percentage of processing fee ?

2)
I prefer to have consultation UAE time, between 4PM-10PM ?

I am interested to have consultation with Pittu more likely this friday.

However,I just wanted to know, As per my profile, Chances of getting PR depend on getting job offer from designate employer.As you know,my current consultant doesn't have that level of competency to handle such tasks,For any reason if that not materialized here too,how the arrangement of paid fee would be?

Appreciate your patience so far

1)
May I suggest you something? Please don?t worry about logistics. We can together sort this out. We have a ton of clients from your part of the World and we started using BoTim based on their request only. If you kindly take my suggestion, please let me share the link, you pay, let me book the slot first. Then we have good 5 days to figure the logistics part. David slots gets filled up very quickly and I honestly don?t want you to loose out time. Each day gone is a loss of competitive position as far as Canadian immigration is concerned.

Please go ahead. Rest all will be sorted.
2)
A final query .... Can I attend call along with my friend, if he satisfied, then he also could be your prospective client ?

Dear Team,
I wonder how you are able to respond so fast all over the day ! Much appreciated !

As I said before, Botim app I have never used. Skype need to be tested via VPN.
How can we make sure whether these are going to work prior to our scheduled call ?

Please let me know, If I miss out asking any clarifications during the conversation, can we shoot a mail for our queries?

OWASP: Avoiding Hacker Tricks

Learn to build secure applications from the mindset of the hacker and avoid being exploited.

I appreciate expressing your forthright view about my profile.

If there is any fat chances as you suggested, then I would definitely be interested to go with you.
At this point of time based on my below profile, not sure If I can make it to the score-67.

To be honest with you, Currently I have enrolled with one of PR consultant and paid processing fees.
He is suggesting to get score of 67, to create my profile in EE, then only he can take my process further.Same lines as you said in mail, He told me good to have -Canadian job offer, to get the required score.He envisaged that, achieving it impossible. Reason being is,This processes has to be vetted by govt and it is being cumbersome required lot of scrutiny and then eventually luck plays the role.

As am rookie in this subject,Just got confused how to procede further from here?
I saw lot of video's on your youtube channel, hoping you are more trustworthy and take the process to logical end.

Again, I am furnishing more detail information about my profile, that would help you to re-assess my chances of getting visa.

Hi,
This is more of a non technical question probably. I am a Senior Software engineer working mainly on Java.
I want to grow and become a Lead but i am unable to rise to it.
I am confused what do i have to do to land there.
I want some people here to share there experience how they rose from a senior software engineer to a Lead.
Some people say you should own things.
The company i am in currently they just assign some tasks and i think if i just keep on solving them i will stay at a Senior Software Engineer level.
Its nothing interesting. I need to somehow pick up things myself and work on them so as to prove myself and get some interesting work.
But i dont understand how am i going to do that. Its easy to say and think that i am only responsible for my growth but for that i need to prove myself and do something interesting.
Moreover i also get confused between somethings
1) Like there is one regular type of work where your manager assigns you tasks and thats very boring
2) Other thing is you figure out something in the codebase refactor it or do something with it. But how am i gonna do that and whether these type of tasks will be valuable to the company or not ?

Something challenging and which grows me rather than doing routine work i need to figure out how to do it in office and work on it so that it keeps my interest and i grow as well.
Please provide some tips and insights into it.
Any books or videos also on this topic will help. I really want to do …

Hi,

I have a few stocks in my Scottrade account (now TD Ameritrade) that get sporadic earnings. It seems that they do "cash alternatives Purchase"-s with the earnings. What happened to that money? Should I tell them to stop buying alternatives and give me the cash? Do I benefit from these alternatives? Do they pay off?
Thanks

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I have recently purchased a vintage Radio Shack Duofone 16 and wish to create ID inserts for it.  That said, could someone help get me started with some ideas for accomplishing this goal?  I also would like to create the ID inserts using a font which matches as closely as possible to a typewriter font.   A picture of this phone along with corresponding ID inserts next to each of the one touch dialing buttons is provided.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I have a question regarding a printout I got from the following link https://www.mtsu.edu/hrs/benefits/components/2015NewBeginningEEPresentation.pdf.  Basically, the background or backdrop of each page printed is black.  While I can clearly read the text in the foreground, I am wondering if there is a way of having a clean or white background with black text in the foreground.

            Any feedback given in response to this question will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

            George
