An old flat-screen monitor has only a VGA and a HDMI port with no USB port.  Is it possible to display a stand-alone slide show or something similar on a monitor using only an HDMI stick of some kind plugged into the back of the monitor?

Assistance in figuring this out is greatly appreciated.

I have the 2002 Jeep pictured here but without the luggage rails that run from front to back as shown.

https://file.kelleybluebookimages.com/kbb/base/house/2002/2002-Jeep-Liberty-RearSide_JELIBSPT023_505x375.jpg

Apparently this part has been discontinued and I need to find either something removable or something that is designed for this Jeep.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

          I am wondering if there are projectors which can project an image from a USB flash drive.  In concept, it would be similar to taking an image on a transparency but instead taking it from the USB flash drive and projecting it onto the wall.  The projector would also need to have controls for shrinking and enhancing the images and well as controls for clarity of the image.   Additionally, it would be nice to have a internal rechargeable battery which will hold at least 2 hours or more of charge.  

          If what I have just described is available on the market, could someone provide a online purchase link?  If it is not too expensive, I would like to purchase one.  I have an art and painting project which can be made much easier and with greater precision if I have a digital style projector.

           Thanks in advance for any feedback given to this question.

            George

Greetings,

We have machines in our classroom that have 2 profiles: english and français

What we would need to do is to push a wallpaper in english for the english profile and push a wallpaper in french for the french profile.

Can you give me advice to set this up please? I believe local GPO can do the trick but not sure how to set that up. I know how to do it on a domain but never tried on a workgroup.

Cheers,


Richard

I am looking for ideas on how to make our annual corporate developer hackathon more engaging and fun.

Ideally, I am especially interested in ideas from those whom have personal experience and are able to share some ideas from their own events. I can perform a Google search, but personal experiences from fellow EE members is more valuable to me. :)

We have a Motorola E5 Play phone. When we open one application (Ibotta) and done we use the stylus to go back to the main screen where icons of all apps are located as well as access to phone and text.
However on another application which is Fox Sports Super 6 app going back with the stylus using the back arrow bottom left does not exit the app which is connected to the internet same as Ibotta. We have to restart the phone.

How to close that app? Thanks.

It is super easy to schedule a calendar event and invite multiple people from my google contacts using calendar.google.com.

However, notifications of the event only occur by email and not by SMS.

Since I also use labels to group contacts, thereby making google contacts and absolute necessity, this is a problem.

I would be encouraged to hear if anyone has a solution to using Google calendar that would allow Google calendar event notifications to be delivered both via email and via SMS?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

I've been trying to find a video that shows the distances between the smallest sub atomic particle to the farthest galaxy in the known universe. It starts out with a closeup of a woman named Louise lying in the grass on the google campus and goes up through the universe to the farthest point, comes back down and goes through Louise's eye into the smallest sub atomic particle, then comes back up to Louise. It's thrilling and seductively beautiful.

The problem is that I can't remember the link to it. The only clue I can offer is my recollection that the website url had the words "physics" and "astronomy" in it.

Does anyone out there remember seeing it? If so please post the link.

Thanks!

hi
its a non technical question to some senior folks out there in software companies
i am planning to take a break from work for a year or 2. i have 9 years experience as a java developer.

does taking a year long break from work lower my chances of getting job ?
should i have a solid reason or do some online course so as to justify it ?
my main reason to take a break is to up my health as i have been stressed out too much. dont know whether that will qualify as a genuine reason.

or it doesnt matter at all ? i clear the interview and i am in.

any suggestions are welcome
thanks

Respond with a text message automatically.

I have been brainstorming for a while regarding wording that is least likely to upset even the most demanding person or client and I am getting closer.

I have come up with this auto-text message so far:  

I am sorry that I missed your call. Since this phone is currently set up for outgoing calls and text messages only, please respond with a text. This will give me a chance to wrap up whatever I am in the middle of, and give your call the undivided attention that it deserves. Thank you for understanding and I look forward to talking with you.

What are your thoughts about the approach to the auto-response and how can I implement it so that it happens automatically, after x rings, or after I have forced it to be passed to the caller even sooner.

This approach is intended to make communication clear more effective for both parties.

Different hairstyles.  I need an online service that will let me run some headshots through the service to get an idea of whether I would look better keeping my look, going to bald, or otherwise changing my look.  Something that would allow others to vote on the best look would also be good.  Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Attach pictures to a Facebook messenger message from an online folder or album.

I would like to be able to attach pictures to a Facebook message from an online folder or album, and not just from the hodgepodge of pictures that have somehow made it into the root of the local gallery on my phone.

The two online services that I am currently considering using are from Microsoft and from Google, but neither of those folders or albums seems to be accessible from my Android Galaxy Note 8 phone.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Howdy all!  I've been curious as to how i can make sure that my TCL 4K 55" tv has all of it's components and electrical pathways are as new. I would deeply appreciate it, even more, if there might be anything else that can be checked. i.e. Those free floating crystals embeded in the screen.  If you know exactly what must be done.. I'm all ears!  Or, rather, "eyes!" :D

I just purchased this item and am not yet convinced that I should return it https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B016K0896K/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's the right product, but I needed the smaller form factor.

It looks like that silver piece that holds it into the computer could be replaced with screws or I could return it and replace it with one that is a smaller form factor.

Assistance in finding either would be greatly appreciated.

I have a text area with auto text choices that come up when I receive a call. If I catch it fast enough, I can respond with text but if I don't, I can't get the choices back.

It says collapse automatically to an area at the very bottom of the screen which is handy, but even that area seems to disappear at about 3 seconds or less.

I would like for that area to stay on the screen even after the call has ended so that I could just press it and send an auto text.

Assistance in making this happen is greatly appreciated.

My Google Note 8 is stuck in reboot loop.

I've tried recommended methods and even though several statements seem to indicate a firmware issue as opposed to a hardware one, no solution seems to be effective.

I need to find another phone to replace this defect.

Suggestions through Amazon on something that won't break the bank would be greatly appreciated.

I would prefer a Google device with stock Android and unlocked.

I will put in my SIM from ATT when I get it and hope for the best.

What is wrong with this search string on amazon.com?

The below syntax returns standard hdmi cables as opposed to mini-hdmi

1. The search string mini-hdmi to usb-c does not work.
2. The search string "mini-hdmi"+to+"usb-c" does not work.

I'm planning to use the export to Google CSV file to get contacts out of google for manipulating and then re-importing them.

The trouble I see currently is that the photos won't be likely to re-populate.

Does anyone have a tested solution for this?

Assistance is greatly appreciated.
