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 a client that has no electronic backup files for hard copies of booklets that require periodic changes. In fact, the problem is we don't know what format the original was created in. Some of these books have been around for years. We have a an old xerox scanner utilizing 'Document and Scan MakeReady' version 3.0.0.16 software. We don't have the CD. It doesn't appear to be available - I assume it's really old. It is running on a Windows 2000 Pro PC. The value of this existing software, is it's ability to allow edits from a received  scan document without changing the original format. At this point - after edits, it can be printed prior to having to save it to a file format , like PDF or DOC. In other words, it allows you to cut/paste changes without altering the original format.

Does anybody have a low cost solution providing the above functionality? Is there an OCR out there that will allow you to make changes prior to committing to a file format.

We have a project on offer which would require one of my techs to travel to the other side of the country. It's about 30 hours work, we estimate, however, there is a lot of time where data will be migrating where there is no requirement for him to be present, maybe upto 3 days worth. He would need to be there for the start, maybe hang around a few hours to make sure it will migrate smoothly and then on call in case it fails, then a bunch of work at the end. I am trying to work out the fair way to charge for the work, given he will need there for long periods of time not really doing much. It's not worth bringing him back for that, plus flights etc, so I am trying to work out how others charge for that work? Do you charge a daily rate or something else? I assume the customer pays or provides accommodation and what about meals etc?The work is for a large tertiary organization.

I believe that technology is a tool to improve our lives. Therefore, the apps I use bring something positive into my life. My favorite app is Headspace <3 It is a guided meditation app. I love it because it brings mindfulness and peace into my life. In case you are not familiar with meditation, I added a nice short video that explains how to manage our emotions through meditation. My second favorite app is Instagram because I can edit all my pictures easily and I LOVE seeing nature pictures from around the world.

I agree with you technology helps a lot and make life easier.   I consider a big gain the banks apps, it's a dream not to go to the bank and do all transactions online. I love the apps that help people to be in touch and closer with no fee: Facetime, Skype, Whats app.  When you live away from your family and friends, these apps make a big difference.  Thanks for the suggestion on Headspace. I will try it.

Hi
As a musician, I am of the kind of Gen X'er mindset that we play my own music or nothing - be true to myself.
Remember when there were some dudes like me in front of Simon Cowell, etc?
It was a mistake for them. It sounded adequate, but for AGT, Voice or A.Idol, it was not smart. - You must play a song everyone knows to help asses you. I definitely respected them for being defiantly loyal to themselves, but not for sabotaging themselves.

What is smart now for non- GenX'ers, 4 millennials? I just want my music to have a chance to be heard.
Now, I just met a guy on Meetup.com who I think might be a good fit, a drummer. I am an all-rounder, song-writer. 50+ songs. He also wants to do proper music, meaningful emotion and lyrical openness, well-crafted. I am not necessarily a top-40-machine. Should I be? I use non-standard open chords with random finger spreads sometimes, but it sounds like music. But, I could totally sell out in a second.
We are meeting on Wednesday night, for a second time, at my place to check out my kit and tracks.
We had a good chat at the bar. He thinks a lot like me. He liked my homemade tracks from Cakewalk.
He's played at big venues before. I have only been in a trio of friends playing for my friends in a club, my GF's and our parents, but its all good. We played at a hospital one time. I'd love to do it right, but the industry is so different, as the new industry means the kids are finding their music online, - sharing software, social …

Tablet is Kindle HD fire 10. Both Alexa and dictation in general worked very well for many months . But a month ago it stopped working. I was unable to find any information that help me . The only thing I thought that might have changed about a month ago was that I installed AVG antivirus . About a week ago dictation worked again . Based on what I had read I thought that maybe it would be a keyboard setting that would affect dictation for the better. When I look at choosing a keyboard , I saw Japanese keyboard is highlighted but the button is off , and the US keyboard choice was desensitized. I did change the keyboard from dark to light . But who knows what other changes I may have made - it just started working again, until the next day when it stopped working. Is working now and I have dictated this question ; so don't be surprised if there are typos and grammar mistakes .

 Does anyone have a definitive explanation as to how I can turn on or off dictation capability ? I believe I was able to dictate by hitting the microphone on the keyboard before I downloaded Alexa . After uninstalling AVG I installed malware bites. Maybe that last action helped?

 My criteria for success understanding the problem is to be able to turn dictation off for the day and then turning on the next day and have it work for two weeks .

Ok. This is driving me nuts.

We are using SMS Passcode to send one-time-password for our 2-factor authentication.
Our SMS Passcode system is working fine as long as we are sending to Denmark-based employees.

But OTP's sent to US people has always been a bit shaky and now they are not able to receive any OTPs anymore.
Of course, we havent changed anything at the SMS Passcode end.
Our setup is as follows:

1 modem in DK with a TDC carrier SIM card
1 modem in the US with an AT&T SIM card
2 online services - clickatell and Tellio

All of the services works fine when texting DK-people even from the US-based modem.

None of the services works when texting US-people.

Noone on AT&T can recieve the passcodes
Noone on Verizon can receive the passcodes
1 T-Mobile employee recieve the codes occasionally and very late.

Can anyone give me a hint on what could be the cause? SMS Passcode support and myself are leaning towards spam filters at carrier-level but how do you handle Passcodes sent by e.g. SMS Passcode?

Of course, no errors at the transmitting end - SMS Passcode reports clearly that the texts has been succesfully sent, modem as well as online services.

Br, Bjorn

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

            I know this question is going to be a little off beat with what is normally inquired on EE, but, I do have a concern which I am confident someone will know the answer.  Basically, I have some carpets which are believed to be red dye stains.  We have attempted to remove these stains using a variety of cleaning and extraction chemicals along with scrubbing methods.  Unfortunately, nothing is working to help resolve this concern.

            With everything said, could someone provide some suggestions or tips which might prove fruitful in removing the red dye stains?  

            Thank you

            George
