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,
This is more of a non technical question probably. I am a Senior Software engineer working mainly on Java.
I want to grow and become a Lead but i am unable to rise to it.
I am confused what do i have to do to land there.
I want some people here to share there experience how they rose from a senior software engineer to a Lead.
Some people say you should own things.
The company i am in currently they just assign some tasks and i think if i just keep on solving them i will stay at a Senior Software Engineer level.
Its nothing interesting. I need to somehow pick up things myself and work on them so as to prove myself and get some interesting work.
But i dont understand how am i going to do that. Its easy to say and think that i am only responsible for my growth but for that i need to prove myself and do something interesting.
Moreover i also get confused between somethings
1) Like there is one regular type of work where your manager assigns you tasks and thats very boring
2) Other thing is you figure out something in the codebase refactor it or do something with it. But how am i gonna do that and whether these type of tasks will be valuable to the company or not ?

Something challenging and which grows me rather than doing routine work i need to figure out how to do it in office and work on it so that it keeps my interest and i grow as well.
Please provide some tips and insights into it.
Any books or videos also on this topic will help. I really want to do …

Alexa does not find the classical music playlist on my PC...I am using Spotify.  When I ask it to play a
specific Ron's classical music hits it resorts to saying it could not find it and resorts to playing some
classical music songs on Spotify.  My nephew allowed me to sign up to Spotify on his family membership
to Spotify.  Keep in mind it is not my paid account...the account is paid for by my nephew and he can add
5 friends to the service under his umbrella account.  Do you think that is the problem?  What should I be
doing in order to resolve this problem?
thanks,

I am looking for ultra inexpensive printing services that can print standard 8-1/2 x 11 double-sided pages.  The local places seem to want 50 cents per side which feels exorbitant to me since I need to print 50 double-sided pages if they are printed on 8-1/2 x 11 standard sized paper.

I tried Vistaprint and one other service but "I think" it came down to the fact that I wasn't duplicating the same content, but was instead wanting to print from a PDF file that already had multiple pages with different content on each page.

Assistance in finding a reasonably priced service for this is greatly appreciated.

I enter tradeview in my Google Chrome browser on www.google.com and get this website in the search results: https://www.tradingview.com/

When I click on it however, I automatically gets redirected to the national version, https://se.tradingview.com/ 
Even though I have VPN on using an American server.

Is there any way to get to the American version instead, the one displayed in the search results?

I have a customer who is a General Contractor.  He wants me to add cameras with spotlights to a job site.  He said he could give me a pole with electricity.  I know Ring has a camera with spotlights but I dont think they have built in LTE which is my first thought.  I did some research and found Reolink Go and Arlo Go.  Does anyone have any experience with this cameras or have another solution that we can consider?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

let's take this situation : I have a subtitled movie equipped with the original speech. I would like to find a way for replacing the sentences pronounced by the actors with a new collection of sentences spoken by my friends. The new sentences should be placed in the same place (they should respect the same timings) of the old ones. At the same time I would like to add a background music that should overlaps with the new sentences. The correct timings that indicate when the new sentences should overlaps with the old ones are obviously contained in a subtitle file that sounds like this :

1
00:00:01,689 --> 00:00:05,689
<i>:=:== Subtitles ==:=:</i>

2
00:00:07,036 --> 00:00:14,939
{\an8}<i>'La realta' e' quella che, quando
smetti di crederci, non se ne va'.</i>

3
00:00:07,038 --> 00:00:14,915
<i>Philip K. Dick:
Spero di arrivare presto</i>

Taking for granted that I already have the list of sentences pronounced by my friends which last the same time as those that were there before,I want to build a workflow that do this job automatically. Please,give me some suggestions about how to do that.

I have purchased the Instant Pot noted below and am considering purchasing the Portable Power Source also.  I need to know if it will power it.  It says that it will put out 100 watts of power but for how long and will the Instant Pot run on that?  I know that volts x amps = watts but since I don't have all of that information, I am still confused.

Any assistance so that I make the best choices here within my budget is greatly appreciated.

Here are the items:
Instant Pot 6 qt.

Google's "Play Music" app appears to be the default app for playing mp3 files from my android phone.  However, I need a way to:

1. See where I am in the clip without the screen changing.
2. Pause with only my voice.
3. Back up ten seconds with only my voice.

I did manage to locate an app from the Google Play Store (top non-sponsored choice) based on ratings, called "Bits Mp3 Player", but it, unfortunately, does not appear to contain any of those 3 key features that I am looking for.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

OWASP Proactive Controls

Learn the most important control and control categories that every architect and developer should include in their projects.

I have an interesting request to build or advise on an expert system, now known more commonly as a KBS or Knowledge Based System.

The reason is that this team are encountering many examples of same or similar problems, where they spend a lot of time re-inventing similar solutions. Ideally, they need a database that can intelligently and [semi]automatically connect the dots between hundreds of similar problems and solutions; in other words, an inference engine connected to a database.

Criteria
1. Search results need a trust raking for the likelihood of a correct solution.
2. New information (problems and solutions) must be easy for a technician to enter, and in a structured format.
3. Database must be both machine and human readable.
4. Must be OS agnostic (web based).

So far, I have found a lot of technical and conceptual papers on this subject, but I haven't found a ready to use application. :(
FYI, here is an interesting document from AAAI: https://www.aaai.org/Papers/IAAI/2005/IAAI05-014.pdf

Questions?
1. Can this be accomplished, as an add-on, with the tools we already own?
2. What KBS systems are available that are either open-source, free, or relatively inexpensive?

We currently use Confluence, Confluence Questions, Jira, Bitbucket, Freshworks Freshservice, and Slack. I have reviewed many of the plugins available and none seem to offer KBS-like functionality. :(

Google Search?
Search results seem to be help desk …

My objective is to find a collaborative meeting space where people can communicate with other members around an agreed upon topic without having to adhere to a particular time. Despite this flexible structure, members should still be able to 'propose' a new meeting time and new discussion topics as-needed.

I have begun the sheet here with this purpose in mind and will add to it as more information comes in over time.

Make Hulu come up on my TV with a single button press.

Currently, my steps are as follows

1. I press the TV Power on my universal TiVo remote which controls my TiVo and my TCL Roku TV.  This remote is pictured here.
2. I press the Input source button on the remote three times which navigates through my TCL Roku TV menu to the custom input source icon that I have named TiVo and then wait three (3) seconds for the source TiVo source to be activated.
3. I now press the TiVo Central (top button) on my TiVo remote and navigate down three (3) items to Apps and then down (6) items to Hulu, and wait a good 20 seconds or more for the Hulu screen to appear.
4. I now go down one (1) click to the Hulu watch-list which has the show highlighted where I left off.

No wonder people are not watching as much TV anymore.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

I would like to create a folder in my OneDrive that is shared between 5 staff members. I will use this folder to add office templates etc. All users have one drive installed and syncing as well as Microsoft Office 365 Business Premium setup. Is there a way I can create this folder on my end as the administrator and add the files and proceed to share the folder with the specific users. Then when they are next online it will just sync the folders and files to their machines via OneDrive? I know with Dropbox you just share the folder and click on the hyperlink in the email but with OneDrive it does not work this way and the users can only view the shared files via the web portal which they never use. I am trying to avoid having to do all the steps manually for every user every time a shared folder is added as they are not technically proficient at all.

Does anyone know who I can lodge a complaint with for a .com registered domain?

I have a client who has a .com.au registered domain.
A scammer has now registered the same domain name under .com level and they have swapped 2 of the characters in the domain name only.

The scammer has then been able to find customers of our client(still trying to figure out how they figured that out) and they have emailed the customers to advise that there is different bank details to pay bills into.  

The client was smart enough to contact my client and ask them if this is correct.

But I would like to submit a complaint and have this rogue domain closed down.  I would love for them to be prosecuted, but I doubt we will be able to get that to happen.

Anyone know who I can contact for .com authorities??

Hi,

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

We have many cables coming to our 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 6a/ 7
- Display port (version 1.4)
- Power socket (Irish/ UK or universal socket)
- Audio in (for 3.5mm cable)
- HDMI port (version 2)
- USB (Type A) (version 3.0)
- Telephone port (RJ11)

This is what we were recommended:

EVOline FlipTop Push Large brushed stainless steel, brush strip

Socket Modules:1 x 75mm

Multimedia Modules:
1x USB Type A 200mm Cable (50mm) (version 3.0)
1x HDM-I No Cable (25mm) (version 2.0)
1x Display Port 400mm Cable (25mm) (version 1.4)

Data Modules:
2 x CAT 6A No lead
1x Main Lead 3 meters.

Price: €350.42 less 10% net before vat €315.38, Transport charge included.

This is fine except that the price is a bit high and we were told delivery would take 6 weeks.

Is there an Irish or UK companies that sell the EVOline FlipTop Push Large brushed stainless steel, brush strip or something like it for around €100 with a much faster delivery time?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hello Experts

Can someone who is a member of the Power BI Community see here https://community.powerbi.com/ let me if they're having problems signing into the forum?

I'm trying to log in with my work account to the forum but it won't log me in, and it won't give me any reasons why my account won't log me in - it just brings back the same login page.

Any idea will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

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.

- Power socket (Irish/ UK or universal socket)
- Audio in (for 3.5mm cable)

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

Thanks,
