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.

What technology was way ahead of its time?

Adidas "Feet You Wear" technology basically introduced what most performance shoes are trying to achieve today. This was the first shoe line I can remember that created support by natural motion. Prior to this, with the exception of Reebok Pump technology, support came from straps all over the place, high ankle collars, and option lacing systems. Lines can be drawn from FYW to more recent innovations like Nike Free outsoles, Adidas Primeknit/Nike Flyknit, and clearly to Vibram FiveFingers.

It's fitting, pun completely intended, that Kobe Bryant was the poster child for FYW because he continued to introduce new innovations and trends with his Nike line. The Kobe 4s popularized low tops, the Kobe 9s started an interesting trend of ultra high(not really purposeful) collars, and the Kobe A.D. NXTs introduced a hidden lace lock system. But I digress.

I'm working with a Samsung Galaxy S6 on the Verizon network. It is current on software updates.

The phone works normally until we switch to maximum batter power saver mode (Settings, Battery, Power Saving Mode - Max.  After engaging this max power saving mode, the phone won't accept calls, and doesn't show missed calls. Even after returning the phone to normal power mode, it won't accept calls.  If we restart the phone is Max Power Saving mode it still won't accept calls.

Normally, restarting the phone will resolve this problem, but a few time we've had to do a full power off, and use the On/Off button to start the phone to resolve the problem.

Does any have any experience with this issue?

Thanks,

Steve

What steps need to be followed so that I can make the far left hand Outlook 2016 column larger (so that the People icon at the bottom of the column) will also display (see the screenshot).

Currently when I drag this column to make it larger it always reverts back to this smaller size.

How can I make this column permanently retain the larger size?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           Precise line spacing in the creation of resumes and cover letters are paramount to it neatness and organization.  With that said, I am wondering how I can manipulate line spacing between entries using Microsoft Word 2013.  For instance, I have a creation which looks like the line spacing is 1 1/2 inches instead of 1 inch.  

           Any shared tips, suggestions, or multimedia tutorial links addressing this question will be greatly appreciated.

           Thank you

           George

I'm looking for a small GPS tracking device that can be put on devices such as laptops or keychains that can then be tracked to its exact location using a GPS tracking system.

I've already looked at systems such as the Trackr device (https://get-trackr.io/) but this device relies on the Trackr tracking device coming into 100 feet of an iPhone or Android phone that hasthe Trackr app installed on it.

What are some other GPS tracking devices that can truly track the GPS tracking device no matter where it goes?

I am looking for a free cloud-based call center software such as Fenero. There is nothing wrong with Fenero except that they don't provide any support at all getting started unless you sign up to pay significantly and monthly.

In their comparison at the bottom of this page, http://www.fenero.com/, they mention Five9 and InContact as being more costly solutions. SalesForce is very costly and is out of the question.

We will be making outbound calls and doing emails.

Free or pay-per-call or pay-per-support incident would be a better model getting started than would a monthly option.

Assistance in finding a better solution for this would be greatly appreciated.

We are currently using a sync service available through Box.com.

This service allows all files and folders located within the "C:\Users\[Username]\Box" or "C:\Users\[Username]\Box Sync" folder to be synced online with Box.com.

The problem is that we aren't able to move or place all of the folders that need to be backed up with Box.com within these folder paths listed above.

So we are looking for a utility that will allow other folder paths such as 1. "C:\Users\[UserName]\Google" or 2. "C:\Users\[UserName]\OneDrive" to appear as if they are located within the "C:\Users\[Username]\Box Sync" folder so that the contents of folder paths 1 and 2 will be backed up with Box.com even though they are located in other folders.

What kind of utilities, programs, or methods are available to do this within Windows 10?

Or is it possible to do this with the subst or other command line command?

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hi,
I normally work on web applications mainly java side and some js. I was wondering what could i do to rise on career ladder. Some time it seems that the office work itself doesnt offer much to do something important.
Please suggest what course should one take and on what areas should one work upon to rise in software career ?

Several times i hear from manager that one should make oneself more visible. But how ? normally one is occupied with the work that manager has given. what could one do both technically and other stuffs probably help organizations to grow....

Generally there is a requirement for a web application and i finish it and thats it. Nothing more than what they have proposed nothing less.
Please suggest some book or articles etc... to get some new ideas in general and especially on web applications.

Thanks

I have a user that is abusing their privileges and would like to block services internally. A user wished to have the Dish Network application installed on their laptop to use while traveling. There has been reports that the use was using the application in the office while on the network. I wish to block services to this application while on the internal network. I currently have Palo Alto firewalls on the network. How do i block this service from my internal network?
