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.

A user I support needs me to purchase the JMP software (which is available from the https://www.sas.com/jmpstore/software/jmp/prodJMP.html website).

I have visited this website and have found that this software is being sold for $1,700.

Are there any other places or vendors where the full version of this software can be purchased for less?

There is a new service that I stumbled upon called movo https://movo.cash/ 

It allows you to set up one time use coins called movo coins for a specific dollar amt that you specify.

I like this service and have used it more than once successfully.

Unfortunately, reloading the card is a bit of a challenge in that they only way to reload is via bank ach transfer otherwise known as direct deposit. This process takes two-three days and is ok but not ideal.

I have seen pre-paid cards at the convenience stores that allow you to reload them with cash at the checkout stand.

Do any of these have the one-time 'coin' option?

I'm looking for the best of both worlds (coins, and reload with cash).

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

My Aspire E5-575-33BM input power jack is failing.  Before attempting repair,  I need plan B: backing up its Windows 10 in a manner that it can be installed on a new machine, including all applications/files and registry.

A user with a Sprint PCS iPhone X running ios version 11.1.1 (15B150) that has Google voice installed on it only slightly vibrates during incoming calls to either its phone number or to the google Voice number.

I have checked the obvious settings and everything seems to be set correctly.

The Do Not Disturb feature is turned off.

What needs to be done to change this so that the iPhone X will ring during incoming calls.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I have a friend who is interested in working from home part-time which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.  Are there any legitimate companies out there which will allow people to work from the comfort of their homes on a part-time basis?  I realize this can be somewhat tricky to answer because of the high volume of online scams going on in today's world.  If there are safe companies to check into, we will certainly be interested in reviewing their needs and requirements for employment.

             Any suggested online link or links to companies that permit remote or home-based employment will be greatly appreciated.

             Thank you so much.

             George

Someone has offered to sell me a used vehicle using eBbay motors.

This person is out of state and says that the car will be shipped at no cost to me in California and that I will them have 5 days to evaluate the vehicle and return if it I so choose.

I am going to be getting an invoice emailed to me within the next few days and the vehicle will then be shipped to me.

However, in the meantime I would like to do further research.

This vehicle will be shipped 1500 miles to me. In order for me to purchase it it will need to pass the California smog check so it can be registered to me.

I will also be taking this car to my mechanic to have it checked out to make sure everything is OK with it.

If there are any problems like it can't pass smog, needs to have repairs done so it will pass smog, or if my mechanic finds any issues with it I need to be sure I will be getting most of my money back from eBay motors if I choose to return this vehicle.

Please provide me with the URL address that explains eBay motors' policy for these things.

looking for some sort of checklist or ideas in terms of criteria in which to critically appraise the performance of our IT service, which is partially in house and certain functions outsourced. I know there are obvious areas such as time to resolve incidents/service requests, uptime of critical apps etc. But was hoping if you work in a contract monitoring type role where you outsource certain IT functions if you have any criteria in which you audit/assess the relevant team against.

My team is experimenting with a service desk solution called Service Now Express for managing incidents, problems, change requests, service requests, knowledge bases, assets, etc.....
One thing we do not seem to understand, or at least agree on, is whether deploying a new Virtual Server in the environment is a change request, or a service request, etc.
Does it vary? Is this something the ITIL gods have already deliberated over and decided on?

Hi
I have a VRBO vacation home in Bethany Beach, DE, U.S.A. and I got a strongly worded letter directing me to acquire 'flood insurance,' for my apartment.

I am new to flood insurance. There are obvious solutions - the premiere companies. But, as is always the case. When you take the quick and easy choice, down a path to the dark side you will go.

They will buy insurance x, if I don't pay by January, and they explicitly said it would most likely cost more than if I didn't find something else. What is the best thing for me to do?

Thanks

In my network, I have a team of users for whom I gave a range of IPs so that they can do their own experiments. (they mainly work with PLCs in a production plant).

My problem is that sometimes they enter an IP in the wrong range and this brings my network down ! How do I prevent this ?
They need to be able to attribute an IP for their machines (that must be in the same subnet as my network), but if they enter a wrong IP (a server IP) then that server is down due to duplicate IP on the network.

Is there a way to make this resilient ? How ?

Thanks

Have a client with a Toshiba CIX 100 PBX.  For the most part, have been able to fix some old setup issues with the system.  However. faced with an issue that I can't seem to figure out.  I have experience with VOIP systems and translating back to a digital PBX is causing me some frustration.

When an outside call comes in, all phones ring.  With a VOIP system, I would be looking at a hunt group (or at least the ones I work on).  I need to be able to limit which phones ring on an incoming call. So questions are:

1) By default, does the CIX automatically ring all phones on an incoming call?
2) How do I assign a single phone to an outside line?
3) How do I assign a hunt group to an outside line?

I'm trying to make a 3D replica of a drawing I made for practice. It's going pretty well except there seems to be some graphical bug happening down near the mouth region. I've been using the "split face" tool on a body made in the "sculpt" workspace. When I go into render and start adding colors, my cursor will sometimes select the main front part of the head even though the cursor is inside the mouth face, meaning that the graphical problem is not just showing parts of the main head, but parts of the main head are actually poking through the mouth face.

So, how do I smooth it out?

This could be an easy question and in fact, this is simple. But just wondering what's the proper algorithm for lucky draw chances?

Let's say in every new deposit amount of X get a no of chances of Y. Providing X = $1000, Y = 1

If there's a customer A credited $10000, he got 10 chances in this month.
If there's a customer B credited $2000, he got 2 chances in this month.
If there's a customer C credited $100, he got 0 chances in this month.
If there's a customer D credited $3500, he got 3 chances in this month.

By end of this month, how do I use a proper algorithm to pick a lucky draw winner? That's to pick a winner among this 15 chances.

One of the approaches is to create multiple chances in a temp table, and then random a position to pick the winner. But my question is what if the total no of chances is a very big number? Will the process of populating this temp table become slow?

Thank you.

Hi,

I am curious if someone knows the best way to set alerts based on certain keywords for financial filings such as 8K, 10K etc. For example, I want to create an alert such that when the following filing appears on the website and has a keyword like "PSU", I get an alert.https://www.sec.gov/Archives/edgar/data/1115128/000156459017019148/quot-8k_20170928.htm

Hello all, hoping someone can point me to the right program.

Our company is wanting to get a staff attendance sign in / out register. It really doesn't need to be over complicated or offer any other services, simply, staff turns up to work, punches in, staff leaves punches out.

We currently use an excel file for this, to begin with it was ideal, but as our company grows we need a little bit more.
I have searched for past 2 weeks straight trying to find the right program, all the ones i have found so far are way more advanced than what we need and price is way out of budget, or they are for 1 staff member only, that clocks in and out,
need to be able to add names, staff click on there name, signs themselves in or out.

This has just recently started happening.
On making or receiving a call my phone is switched to loudspeaker. The loudspeaker icon Is greyed out. Clicking the icon turns it green and the phone is still on loudspeaker. A second click greys the icon again and the phone reverts to normal operation. It's becoming annoying having to switch it every time.
I have moved a whole load of apps to the sd card, but I haven't loaded anything new recently.
Can anyone suggest how I can stop it being on loudspeaker for every call please?
