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.

Can a Vizio model E221VA be hooked up wireless to the router in a home or does it require a cable? The provider is Dish Network.

If cable, I assume is will need to be run from the room desired, which has no cable outlet to some junction box connecting with signal input from the dish.

Thanks.

I am demonstrating the use of the Instant Pot as a social and weight loss tool for a group of retirees, mostly women.

I and some others in the Instant Pot community view the Instant Pot as a potential way to bring people together around food in a safe, healthy, and affordable way.

The missing piece as I see it is a web-based tool that will allow two people to schedule a meal together, much like a meeting would be scheduled in an office.

It should ideally be as easy as picking up your smartphone to find either a new or existing person or persons to enjoy a fast and healthy meal with.

Any suggestions in locating the right free web-based tool to adapt for this process are greatly appreciated.

Can you advise me on what to use in order to listen to them? Also, why does the voice mail gets recorded in this file extension not other ones like .avi or .mp3?  Thank you

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

        I am wondering if I can possibly get the classic 80's game, Donkey Kong, for PlayStation 4.  From a previously closed post, I was pleasantly surprised that I could get Asteroids for PlayStation 4 and hoping to be able to do the same for Donkey Kong.  

         Thank you in advance for any review and feedback given in response to this question.  I look forward to seeing what everyone finds out.

I subscribed to Sirius XM on my 2013 Toyota Sienna Van. It originally came with it with a 3 month free trial.

I resubscribed about two weeks ago, not expecting the nightmare I was getting into.

It does not work in my vehicle except once or twice for about 5 - 10 seconds; then is says NO SIGNAL. Everywhere.

They refuse to Cancel & refund.

Any ideas?

Does anyone have a strong background on Zetafax?  

We took this client over a while ago and they never paid their Zetafax support so now we're stuck.   Currently our client has 7 lines for in bound and out bound faxes that are handled by a Zeta fax server.   They are currently considering moving to another solution and need us to draw out how the process for Zeta fax works.   I do have access to the Zeta Fax server but I do not know where the fax cards route the lines.  

Basically they are asking us to write out a Visio for them showing them the entire work flow and how that can apply to their new solution they are going with.   Really need help with this one.

Say, what can I do to speed up the Blackberry Q20 ? It's got much slower now with all the Apps installed on it. I have tried uninstalling as many Apps as I can. There is still plenty of free storage space on the phone and the SD card. Memory usage fluctuates between normal and moderate. Please advise.

Dear Experts,

I am a part of a team that developed an iPhone/Android game.  We are in a unique position because the sponsor of the game is willing to pay a lot to get this app marketed by an experienced digital game marketing company.

My issue is, I am not familiar with the gaming industry at all, and not sure how to find such marketing company.  The 2 contacts I found through my professional networks did seem qualified, but as soon as we start talking budget, they stop responding.  (I was told to start from 20k, but my sponsor is willing go pay quite a bit.  He wants this game to be popular.)  
Perhaps they are not willing to work with such small team of developers?  I am thoroughly stumped to how I can proceed with this problem.
Please advise.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

             I am wondering if the early 80's classic arcade game of Asteroids is available for PlayStation 4 or PS4.  If so, how may I go about purchasing and installing it on my current PS4 console?

              Thank you.

I have next Sony Vaio SVF1521B4E:

with frozen keyboard and frozen touchpad as described here:

I suspect is a BIOS/UEFI corruption.
I want to update or re-flash the BIOS with latest or original firmware.
The problem: It seems I can update the BIOS only in Windows 8.1 or Windows 10:
https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/laptop-pc-svf-series/svf1521b4e/downloads/Z0007780
https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/laptop-pc-svf-series/svf1521b4e/downloads/Z0001246
And I can boot only from USB stick/drive and only Ubuntu/Linux.
A Windows (7 or 8 or 10) live CD/DVD on USB stick does not work. It starts to boot and is blocked in an indefinite/endless loop. On another PC it starts, so the USB live OS on stick is good.
How can I update BIOS for Sony Vaio SVF1521B4E under Ubuntu/Linux?

Here are the specs on the phone being offered through our carrier.
https://whatismyphone.com/vendors/zte/quest-plus-z3001s

It does not say which version of Android. We currently have Android ? and need 5.0 or higher. The above phone is our "only" choice. Keep what we have (which we acquired about 2 years ago and which has Android 4.4.4) or take the one above which was released last year. Should it have Android 5.0 or higher?

>> required >> for a specific app > Android devices running on platform 5.0 and newer

Hi,
There is a situation in the development project that i am making.
Our code is using a library code which is handled by some other team in my company.
the other library code provides some features. so we are using it.
But recently i noticed that the library inside its pom file is using lib2(external lib) say of an older version.
Now i want the other library to use the latest version of lib2 so that we are using the latest version of all.

I am new to this organization. I dont know who the owner of this library is. Even if i find out will they upgrade the lib2 in their project ?
How does these types of requests gets handled in your organization. How can i take it forward any tips or ideas in case you have done such a thing.
Because this may be a requirement from my side only there should be a convincing reason to update it. Because they will require testing.

So the basic idea is getting the code owned by other team to upgrade the library they are using to the latest version.
How to proceed about it. what is the ideal process to follow for this

Thanks

Can someone recommend a company that can provide tech support for various open source software?  I work in a small library with different LAMP/WAMP servers that I manage and troubleshoot when necessary, but when I will go on vacation there will be nobody to do that so my colleagues are wondering whether they could pay (preferably not too much) for occasional tech support.

This is probably not the place to ask this, but....

I find Uber to be an enigma. You ask for a pickup to ride fro A to B. Sometimes they show up, sometimes not. But there is no determining the time. Why is this ever acceptable to anyone who has a life?

For example, I would like to use Uber to schedule a ride to take us to the airport. But if I can’t count on it being here in a reasonable time frame, then I risk missing the plane. Why isn’t this A - B - C?

Thanks

I am aware of paint fumes damaging circuit boards.

I am still going to ask this question.

Is there any type of paint out there that I can use to make my server room ugly walls look nicer? Is there anything that I can do?

Thank you, your help is much appreciated.

My current phone is LG Expressions Plus (LM-X410ASR)
It's only been two weeks and it definitely seems to be slowing.
2 GB Memory
Based on this article, it seems that 2 gb - 4 gb is the standard recommendation.

FEATURES NEEDED ON A NEW PHONE
  • Built-In Wireless Charging
  • Built-In Fingerprint
  • Unlocked for Any GSM SIM

If you had to consider all the myriad of stock trading indicators out there that many novice and advanced traders alike base their trading on, and you had to group that huge number of indicators into the broadest possible major categories, what would those categories be?

I'm thinking there may only be two (2) categories off the top of my head:  Price and Volume.

What do you think?
