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.

Hi Thomas,

I've gotten a response from Sticky Password Premium Support and there is a way to Merge the USB database, though not immediately obvious so I'm not surprised it's easily missed..

The database of the Portable version can be updated by almost the same steps as when installing it. Connect the USB device with the Portable version installed to a Windows computer with the installed desktop version of Sticky Password and navigate to the main Sticky Password window - Menu - Tools - Portable Passwords. You will get an option to replace or merge the databases of both Sticky Password installations:

https://www.stickypassword.com/help/taking-advantage-of-portable-passwords-by-sticky-password-1092

Cloud sync feature for the Portable version is not in our nearest plans however we may add it in future updates.


Hope that helps.

Andrew,

Yes this is how I update my stick database.  I always choose the overwrite option.  It is unfortunate that Sticky Password does not have the option to sync from the stick.

Craft an Eye Catching Title


Your project title is the first thing that a freelancer sees. Be mindful that your project will be one of many on a list, and will often be viewed at a glance by someone looking for freelance work. Make sure your title stands out in the crowd. Many sites have a character limit for titles, so make it simple, catchy, and informative. If you’re stumped, try writing the project description first and coming back to the title afterward.


Carefully Consider Budget

Whether you believe the “gig economy,” as it has been dubbed, is the next big economic paradigm shift or an overstated trend, the fact is that the workforce at large is evolving significantly. New social collaboration tools, the continuing demand for job flexibility and general economic fluctuation, among other factors, have lead to more and more off-site and freelance work—especially in the realm of technology¹.

Gig work can mean more control over your career trajectory and more freedom in defining the boundaries of your professional and personal lives, but the figure-it-out-as-you-go approach can easily lead to floundering and frustration for those who dive into this brave new world unprepared. With studies suggesting that the on-demand workforce will double in size by 2020, it’s becoming increasingly important that we understand and adapt to this metamorphosis. We’ve provided five tips to assist those who are considering a transition into the bustling world of freelance work.
