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 got an old heater furnace.  Probably as old as my house.  Which is state "approx 1915" in city hall records.  Wondering if worth repairing or get a new furnace, that will be a pretty pricey project.

I attached a few pictures.  I can fire up the pilot.  However, when switching to the burner the pilot shuts off.  Also notices the pilot flares a lot larger than usual.  I replaced a thermocouple last year.  That didn't help.

Any suggestion or maybe someone knows another 'hvac' specific forum?

Thanks in advance!!

Hi Experts.

I'm trying to figure out an electrical circuit, how to connect a Well Pump to be switched on/off from 3 switches. each one of the switches can turn on/off the pump.

I came up with a diagram (attached), and I would like to know if this is the right way to do this? and if there will be an issue/shortage if 2 or more switches turned on in the same time ?

appreciate your feedback.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am interested in purchasing online a digital photo frame which will be used on top of a bedroom dresser.  At this point, I am unsure regarding the size for the digital frame.  I do not want it to be too small.   I am thinking perhaps a wide 10.1 inch frame would be a comfortable size for viewing, but, I am not sure though.   I would like for the chosen digital frame to also have a back light so the digital pictures can be seen at night in a slideshow fashion in addition to having a USB port.  Additionally, I would love for the digital frame to play background music as the pictures are being displayed.  

           In closing, I am sorry for being so picky with what I am exactly looking for here.  But, the chosen digital frame will be a Christmas present for a special friend.  That said, any recommended digital frames to check out will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

              I am attempting to set up a Lumiman Smart light bulb which will require the PlusMinus app.  That said, could someone provide a direct download link for the PlusMinus app?   From what I gather, it can be obtained  from Google Play or the Apple App Store.  But, I am not sure though.

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

              Thank you

I have an extension cord broken and I want to repair it.
It is closed with special head screws, which seems are made only to be tightened.
The head does not allow opening with a normal screwdriver.
I have a set of industrial, special screwdrivers, but none of them helps.
I tried to drill the head of the screw with gold type HSS drill bits, under 0.5 up to 2mm, but it is a very hard material and did not help.
The screws are fixed in plastic/aluminum case of the extension cord. They are not glued. They just need to be unscrewed.
So, how shall loose/open these screws?

Any helpful hint is appreciated.

Got a lecture on MP3.  About an hour long.

Want to cut bits of it into a loop.

Looking for super simple drag & drop audio cutting and splicing.

Audacity seems too complicated.  Need something simpler.  Only requirement is to select blocks of audio and splice them together.  No need for processing or enhancing.

What looks like an easy piece of software to do this?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am attempting to set up a Lumiman wireless bulb with my Amazon Alexa which is leading to some questions.  As part of the setup instructions for Alexa, I am being required to input my "Plusminus" account and password.  I am not sure where to obtain these credentials because this information was not provided up receipt of my wireless light bulb purchase.  That said, could someone provide the needed steps for obtaining this information?

           Thank you

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I am needing step by step procedures for enabling popups for Google Chrome.  The reason I am needing this information is that I am setting up a Lumiman wireless bulb using the web app at alexa.amazon.com.  Whenever I select the Smart Life skill and select Enable, I get a message indicating "Make sure popups are enabled within your browser".  

             Any guidance on accomplishing this goal will be greatly appreciated.

             Thank you

I'm responding to Audit.

What are the criteria of IT projects that generally require
a Steering Committee (members are usually the board
members like CIO, COO, CFO & snr mgmt) to be formed?

I'm thinking for apps projects that exceed US$200,000
but that's for apps projects that involve users but for
Infra projects (say a costly SIEM of $250,000), it's not
appropriate to involve COO, CFO as they would find it
irrelevant.

Any supporting white papers or authoritative that can
be shared will be useful here.

Currently, it's the Financial, Shipping, Procurement
application systems that come under Audit's radar.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am needing help with a Google search.  Basically, I am trying to figure out when Viola Community Center, which was originally Viola Elementary School, located in Viola, TN was built.   Perhaps I am using the wrong search terms or strings, but, I can not find anything on this.

            Any research into when Viola Community Center was originally built will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

Hi,

We are currently creating a conference room to be used for meetings.

We plan to have a large display installed on the wall, board room table in middle of the room and cables running from the display to the board room table.

We plan to have many cables coming to the board room table which can be used for people's laptops during meetings.

The table we have ordered has no slot for a connectivity box so we will be making a hole in the table to fit a connectivity box.

The ports needed for the connectivity box are:
- Cat 6
- Display port
- Power socket (Irish/ UK or universal socket)
- Audio in (for 3.5mm cable)
- HDMI port
- USB (Type A)
- Telephone port (RJ11)

What would you recommend as a very good conference table connectivity box to use with these cables?

Thanks,
Robbie

I have sever genre folders containing mp4 video stored on a Synology network drive feeding a couple of Media servers. Plex, for example.

I'd like to be able to determine  how many times each video is being watched over time. Is that possible, and how would I go about creating something like that?

I'd like to come up with some clever tagline or rhyme for having our users reboot on Thursday.  After we push security updates to endpoints, I want the users to reboot, so I'd like a clever tagline.  For example, if I wanted my users to drink more water, I could say something like, "It's Thirsty Thursday, please make sure you drink plenty of water today!"  Or if I wanted my users to attend a meeting on Tuesday, "It's Technology Tuesday, please come to our technology meeting today!"

Can someone come up with a clever idea because "Reboot Thursday" or "Restart Thursday" just doesn't have a good ring to it!

1.  Teachers apply learning theories as they teach reading and writing.

2.  Teachers adopt the balanced approach to literacy instruction.

3.  Teachers differentiate instruction so all students can be successful.

4.  Effective teachers use pre reading, reading, responding, exploring, and applying processes to ensure that students comprehend text they read.  

5.  Effective teachers teach students how to use the writing process - prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, publishing to write and refine their compositions.  

6.  Effective teachers determine students' independent, instructional, and frustration reading levels.

7.  Effective teachers link assessment with instruction through planning, monitoring, evaluating, and reflecting.

8.  Effective teachers prepare students for high-stakes tests without sacrificing their instructional programs.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

         As an extension to a previously closed post, I am wondering where I can go online to purchase a wireless light bulb which will be compatible with my Amazon Alexa (2nd generation) and supported by any of the integrated skills within the Amazon website app located at https://alexa.amazon.com.   The bulb will need to be dimmable and multi-color manipulated through simple voice commands given to Amazon Alexa (2nd generation) and not require a hub.  

          Any shared online link or links to this Smart Light Bulb of interest will be greatly appreciated.  

          Thanks so much in advance for any feedback given to this question.

Now, my question is ... I want to design a website like Digital Trends https://www.digitaltrends.com/.  Is this type of site logically attainable? Or, will I be racked with major competition?  

When you look at Digital Trends Entertainment sectionhttps://www.digitaltrends.com/best-products/, there is a section of the website that is devoted to Online Movie Providers. I like that!

Am I going in the right direction with this review website?  

For the Appearance, I am starting with the header appearance. I want the text logo to begin the menu just like the two websites that I mentioned.

I want the header to be black in color with a mega menu.  Is this achievable for today? And, yes, I want to take small steps.
