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, I did encounter a miscellaneous error in SQL 2012 STD edition. I am trying to increase the initial size of the log file for couple databases on a SQL server  and I did it using the script and Management studio GUI. Both completes executing successful but the log size still remains the same old size and it's not increased to the new configured value. Please help.

I'd guess the force exerted by the person on top and the support needed by the braces is in the physics universe and thus a part of science chosen as the zone.
These are the springs that eliminate the need for a box spring on bunk bed. One has one curved support welded to the frame. The other has two. The previous owner said they thought the spring frame with two support bars would be the top bunk. Why would the top bunk need two braces instead of one? If the top requires two then "they" are assuming the heaviest person will always occupy the top bunk. Common sense my tell the bed owner to always let the smallest child on top.

Hello,
I know it has nothing to do with programming but what hotkeys should a programmer know?
I mean for example copy-paste, go to end of line etc.

Thank you

I have not seen the statement myself but I have someone telling me there is an unrecognizable charge on her credit card statement. I'm thinking she possibly means it's a debit card. But either way, from some of the information she provided to me, it looks to me like it's an ACH transaction.  I've been trying to find something similar on the net but no success, so I'm asking here. Does anyone know why or can somebody give me an instance where an ACH payment might show up on a credit card statement?

Thank you.

Need ideas to make a near 0 cost ladder for wooden bunk bed. I can get free 2 x 4's.
The old bed was metal and full size on the bottom so the ladder was made to accommodate a twin over a full.
That ladder broke in some way and I do not have access to it to see if it can be used in some way on the wooden bunk.
The new bed is twin over twin. I'm not sure if one with hooks on the top will work or not. There is plenty of wood on these frames for drilling holes and adding bolts.

I would like to make use of old label sheets in Google Documents.
A good example might be a sheet of old Avery Diskette Labels #6490.
These labels are a good size and I would like to be able to use them.
However, I don't want to tie this work to a single computer and would, therefore, prefer to do this in a Google Document.
The letter-sized pages come with labels organized in three (3) columns, with five (5) labels per column, for a total of fifteen (15) labels per page.

The side borders before the labels begin are about 1/16 of an inch.
The top and bottom borders before the labels begin are about 1/2 of an inch.
The separation between the first row and the second row and between the second row and the third row is 1/6 of an inch just like the side borders.

I have begun this google document where I am trying to come up with a template for these labels.

Folks, an extremely annoying problem as follows:
I use a Garmin 660 GPS for my motorbike and Basecamp to plan the trips.
Since not all of my biker-friends have a Garmin i want to share the route with them on Google maps so they can read it into their phone and follow the route turn by turn.
I know you can set up a new route in Google maps on your phone and push the Start button to get the directions,
however when i import a gpx- or kml-file it only *shows* the route. It is not possible in Google maps to select the route and push "Start". Only thing you can do is to rename or delete the route..

Or is this a functionality which only exists in my fantasy ?

/thanks for any contribution

At the present time, I am a fulltime caregiver for my Mom, who will be 95 years old this October. Given her age, it is no secret that, even though they had me later in life, I am a senior citizen.  I really need to get a job, but the only option for me right now is to work from home.  I'm hoping someone can give me advice so that I can avoid scams which are everywhere.

Given the state of technology, obtaining remote work should be easy. However, given the type of skills I have and work experience, I believe I will have to pass some type of certification. My skills are in the arts, music(I have a Bachelor's, but who doesn't?) and drawing(still learning) and I don't particularly enjoy giving piano lessons. There are too many factors against it, particularly with an invalid present, cancellations, etc.  I also suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, which adds additional challenges. I need an income that is certain.

Some of the sites, which were mentioned on Forbes magazine "top remote jobs" were WorkingSolutions, Flexjobs, and others. These are mostly call center work, and from what I've researched, many are unhappy with the hiring practices.

I was thinking of becoming a Certified Bookkeeper, as I believe it is possible to do this remotely. I don't want to spend anything, either time or money, on learning something that won't lead to a fair chance of employment. I know there are no guarantees, but it's too late for me to become an engineer or pharmacist…

Power 'and' display.

I thought that I would be able to use a micro-usb to usb-c cable to pair this Magedok T1116D 1080P FHD Capacitive Touch Portable Monitor shown here http://magedok.com/touch-screen-monitor-t116c with this Microsoft Surface Go device https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/surface-go/8V9DP4LNKNSZ/L8M8?activetab=pivot%3aoverviewtab.

While the monitor does come on when it is plugged in using only the micro-usb to usb-c cable, it says "no signal" very briefly, and goes to black.

Is there any way to pair the devices so that the second screen will function?

Screw needed for this monitor arm that is less likely strip

I bought this item which came with an allen wrench to tighten up two places where the arm turns. Unfortunately, it strips out and I need to replace the screw with something more sturdy.

Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I chose diagramo.com because it states that it is open-source and free. It also appears to allow for collaborating and saving the files online.  

However, the help files are not there for the sample set of ten (10) basic shapes that it included in order to tell me what they mean.

Assistance in defining what each of the ten basic shapes below actually means would be greatly appreciated.

1. Stadium Rectangle - Terminator
2. Rectangle - Process
3. Square - Unknown
4. Circle - Connector
5. Diamond - Decision
6. Trapezoid - Data
7. Oval - Unknown
8. Right Triangle - Unknown
9. Pentagon - Unknown
10. Hexagon - Unknown

Dragon Naturally speaking Professional 15.30.000.006 on Windows 10 v1903.  After using the computer for hours (Non dictation use), the Dragon Bar might become unresponsive.  Have to end task a bunch of Dragon programs to get it working again.  This happened on the old computer running v1809, and still an issue on the new computer.  Have created a new Dragon audio profile and made no difference.  The PC doesn't go to sleep of any kind.  Nuance has no other ideas.

Free gospel favorites.

If it is true that songs after a period of time are no longer copyright protectable, I would like to find such a source for gospel music that could be played for a congregation.

I am not sure whether songs are no longer protectable after a period of time or not, but any place to start is better than none.  Your suggestions and are greatly appreciated.

Gboard for Android and Windows desktop

I absolutely love Gboard. It works so seamlessly for voice-to-text, and for allowing you to re-use text clippings. The problem is that it only seems to be available for Android and iOS. I don't think there is a way to use it in Windows? This is disappointing, to say the least. Any assistance in finding some way to cross-platform this ability would be greatly appreciated.

I am using this sheet to start doing some camera research.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xEKLjHTZjs8ROewbyuQiiH5wcFs8A_AEdF7c9lDgeRU/edit#gid=0

I am looking for a camera at amazon.com that will allow me to be notified when a human is detected.
I don't need facial recognition as much as just 'human recognition'.
Ideally, I would just like to be notified, when a human presence is detected.

I am looking for a reasonably inexpensive but effective way to resolve this.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

We have a server (2012R2) running Shadowprotect for backups, it is currently sending the backups to a Buffalo NAS drive, and will sporadically fail to run a backup (error message attached). I looked into the error but didn't find anything that would help with resolving the issue. Right after the error, we ran a manual backup, which worked without issue.

I own a Tesla and periodically I get news alerts from them (or some associated app) on my iMac. I call them "Alerts" but they don't behave like alerts because they don't "stay on screen until dismissed", and in fact they often disappear before I can fully read them. Note that my System Preferences|Notifications for Safari is set to "Alerts".

If anyone else has a Tesla and an OS X device please let me know if you also get the "Alerts".
