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.

Back in the day (about to show my age here) when I was deep into using the Commodore Amiga and Workbench, I worked with a developer on the ability to create a RAM Drive. Not just a drive letter in Ram, an actual drive.

Essentially, the idea was to create the ability of making a pseudo hard drive in Volatile Ram space, that could be used as a regular hard drive.

Obviously, this had huge benefits in terms of program speed, as you could hack install an operating system into this disk and then install software into it (mostly games at the time) and then run that software at unheard of speeds. He actually got it working too! Sadly, he's now deceased so all his ideas and work were lost with him.

A recent question on Experts Exchange made me remember the project so I was wondering if anyone had heard of something like this for Windows?

NB: I know the RAM considerations, but I currently have a high end server sitting around here doing nothing, that also has 128GB of RAM installed in it. More than enough for an operating system and some programs.  And yes I know that all would be lost if the host operating system crashed :)

All that said.. anyone heard of something like this being developed for Windows?

I would like to implement a fast fixed point sine approximation for PIC24F microcontrollers on 16bit.
I started from here: http://www.coranac.com/2009/07/sines/
The approximation is done with polynomials: 3rd order up to 5th or even 6th order.
I am stuck in the beginning.
The 3rd order polynomial is S3(x)=(3/PI)*x-(4/PI^3)*(x^3) or S3(z)=(1/2)*z*(3-z^2) with z=x/(1/(2*PI))
I tried an Excel sheet for this function and I compared with sin() from Excel.
Either I make a mistake or the approximation error is too big.
Here is the Excel: https://goo.gl/2KJXj8 
Could you help to debug this?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

             I have a Magnavox DVD/VHS Combo player ( Model: DV200MW8) which I strongly suspect is failing.  The problems I am having with the DVD side of this player are as follows:  For commercial and non-commercial DVD's with movies or television programs, it will freeze up at a random frame, then, exit totally out of the show.  The non-commercial DVD's are in DVD-R format which is compatible with this unit.  The used commercial DVD is a double sided one which also should be fine with this unit.  Upon visual inspection of these DVD's, they appear to be physically fine without scratches or cracks.  

            In closing, if someone could provide some technical or troubleshooting guidance in resolving the issue with my Magnavox DVD/VHS Combo player ( Model: DV200MW8), it will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

            George

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am wondering where I can purchase a new vcr dvd combo player for $100 or less.  Unfortunately, the ones listed on ebay are into the hundreds of dollars, $400 to $500 price range, which is way beyond my budget.  

          Any suggestions will be deeply appreciated.

          Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          I am wondering how income, family size, and amount owed are used in determining monthly repayments of student loans under the income driven repayment plan.  What I have in mind is a chart or table which can be used in calculating this information.

Currently our MDM policy blocks our corporate-issued iPads
from accessing iTunes (to prevent data leakage/loss).

There's a number of senior staff who wants to use the
iPads to project out via projector for presentations.  However
our MDM (think it's MobileIron) will enable iTunes access if
we enable this projector access via the iPad's lightning port
(which we use an adaptor to connect to the projector : I
 presume it's the projector's HDMI).

How can we allow projector connection & yet block iTunes
access?  

I'm assuming the data leakage/loss will occur when these
staff bring the iPads home to connect their lightning port
to their home laptop's USB (via an adaptor).  

Any IOS apps that's smart enough to detect if it's projector
traffic or iTunes traffic?  or any way to block sync'ing or
communication with iTunes from these iPads?

I have 18 hard disk drives that I must copy SOME of the files off of each that meet certain criteria. I need to copy every file that  is a mp3, jpg, cdr, doc and other file extensions that are on these drives to a main computer. I am sure that there will be duplicates that I will want to eliminate. Does any Expert know of a software utility that will do this for me or make the job easier? Method ONE would be to copy say all of the mp3 files to a new folder then use a utility to erase or flag all the duplicates. OR method TWO would be to try it manually. VERY time consuming.  Just looking for ideas.

I have written a ton of music, say 70 songs.

I am 39 years old. I'd like to get my music out there. I am not inclined to try and do the band thing *again*

I know the money in music is gone, now that CD's aren't sold.
Taylor Swift makes 0.004 cents a spin on a tube or something, right?
I'd just like to get my music out there. Are there any options for me?
I live in Wilmington, NC, which is called 'Wilmy-wood' - Hollywood East! lots of TV is shot here.
Can unknown people walk up to  a producer and say, wanna listen to my stuff?

Thanks
