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.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I am wondering where I can go online to review a list of personal grants awarded by the federal government and private sectors.  Realizing that most grant monies are awarded to small businesses, non-profit organizations and agencies, college students, etc.,  I know this will be a rather difficult question.  However, if there are any grants awarded to individuals based upon financial need, I am certainly interested in checking them out on behalf of a dear friend.

            Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,w

              I am interested in using the following link http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html/rutherford_county_assistance_p1.html in my quest to help a dear friend with a financial crisis.  My friend recently had necessary dental work performed which amounted to a large $3000 bill.  Her minimum payment each month exceeds her ability to pay because of a low fixed income.  She is also disabled and unable to work.  With these points in mind, I would like to use the link mentioned in this post as an attempt to correlate the right financial assistance program to her needs.  It appears this link offers assistance to people with a variety of different financial crisis.  As such, it is a bit difficult for me to navigate to the exact area needed.  That said, could someone properly navigate to the area needed to apply for financial assistance for a pre-existing dental cost?  

              Any help given in response to this question will deeply be appreciated.  My friend is really struggling with this concern and is in need of being networked to the proper local agencies and organizations resourceful enough to help with such matters.

               Thank you

Hi,

I've just bought my first Kindle. I've read through the instruction book that comes loaded on it, however I have 3 questions:

01 - I plan to highlight various areas of books and make a lot of notes about various things in books, so that i can get back to them at a later stage... is it possible to sync these notes and highlights to an online account so that if i lose my Kindle or change to a new one, i don't lose my highlights and notes?

02 - When i turn off the Kindle, i still see an image on the screen... is there a better way to turn it off that just pressing the ON / OFF button once?

03 - How can I favourite books that I like on Amazon (web / desktop), and get them to appear on my Kindle?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Within the Taskbar setting menu, I selected the option to "Replace Command Prompt with Windows PowerShell in the menu when I right-click the start button or press Windows key+X (see the screenshot).

As a result, the Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin) options no longer appear in that list (see the second screenshot).

How can I add the Command Prompt and Command Prompt (Admin) options back to this list so that they will appear in addition to the Windows PowerShell & Windows PowerShell (Admin) options?

Client is a busy Coffee Shop that uses QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise 2017 in the back office.  They used to use Quickbooks Payments, and they’ve changed to another, from Vantiv.  Now they’re struggling with getting their credit card transactions from Vantiv into Quickbooks, with the same level of detail they enjoyed with syncing Quickbooks Payments.  

How do we link Quickbooks and Vantiv, to make “importing” credit card transaction detail into the Undeposited Funds possible?

I have built two servers containing Intel S2600CP server boards.

These server boards are connected to a Raidmax Cobra Power 1200W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply.

The problem is that these "Raidmax Cobra Power 1200W 80 Plus Gold Power Supplies" don't have the right kind of power connectors for connecting to the connectors on the Intel S2600 CP server system boards next to the two CPUs. They contain a six pin connector and a detachable 2 pin connector.

The main power connector that comes from these power supplies that connects to the server system board plugs in without any issues; the problem is that the two other smaller power connectors that plug into the server system board (next to the CPUs) have only six pins instead of the eight that are needed.

When just the six pin connector is connected to these two locations on the server system boards the server system boards won't power on and produce a lot of beep codes (and nothing displays on the monitor). The same thing happens when the other two detachable pins are connected alongside these six pin power connectors.

So I'm hoping that there are adapters or cables I can buy that will plug into these "Raidmax Cobra Power 1200W 80 Plus Gold Power Supplies" on one end and that will then plug into the two eight-pin connectors on the server system board (next to the CPUs).

What sort of adapters or cables are available that will allow me to use the "Raidmax Cobra Power 1200W 80 Plus Gold Power Supplies" with these…

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

         On behalf of a very dear and close friend,  I am needing to ask the following upcoming question.   Are there any online charitable organizations which award grants to help senior citizens and disabled individuals with dental bills?  My friend recently required extensive dental work which also required dentures and bridges.  Her total bill was over $3200.  Seeing that she is on a fixed low income, I am wondering if there are private foundations or organizations which award personal grants to less fortunate individuals with related expenses.  While she does have Medicare insurance, it does not cover any dental cost.

          If anyone has any suggestions or guidance to lend toward this important concern, it will be deeply appreciated.   Thank you so much for your understanding and care of this question.  I look forward to reviewing and following up on any and all leads.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I am wondering if anyone has any tips or suggestions for removing a sewer gas like smell from my residential bathroom.  I had it checked out by the water and sewer department and they said the lines were clean and free of any backup.  The next step is to call a plumber, but, I am trying to avoid that if possible.

           Any suggestions will be appreciated.

We have a client that wants to start getting involved in social network having presence in Tweeter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest.  Not only posting its business “news” or “new product” but articles of interest that come upon on a daily bases or even re-post articules or contents from other business partners, etc.

Besides the fact the client wants to know what  is the best way to start, one concern is posting data.  That  is comments, pictures, etc.  

We want to know how to go about posting an issue through all these social networks.  

For example, we found an artificial intelligence topic interesting and wanted to post it.  We download the article, download some images, prepare it and posted to Facebook.  How do the user go about  to modify contents prior posting to all Tweeter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Pinterest? Or is there a way that the user can creat a “template” and then post them to all?

Why are there no books of videos on Palo Alto Networks firewalls to be found on O'Reilly - Safari?
There are tons of books on Cisco, Juniper, Citrix. But nothing at all on PAN. Is PAN just very restrictive
about who can write about their products? PAN isn't brand new any more. Anyone have insight?

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           I have been recently appointed to a hiring committee for an open position within my department at the university.  To be perfectly candid, I have never been on a hiring committee which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.  What are "key" strengths and weaknesses to look for within a cover letter and resume?  With so many to go through, I do not want to spend a lot of time on irrelevant information.  

            Any shared tips or pointers for evaluating potential clients in an administrative capacity will be deeply appreciated.

            Thank you

I'm interested in signing up for and using Xobni (which is Inbox spelled backward).

When I go to Xobni.com I am redirected to http://address.yahoo.com/xobni. A lot of the links from this site don't work.

Also when I google, download, and install Xobni from other sites the Xobni program doesn't seem to work properly.

Further information about Xobni can be found here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xobni.

I'm most interested in Xobni since I understand that it has a feature that will let you know whether or not someone who has emailed you within Outlook has an Outlook contact created or not.

So where can I find a functional version of this product (with a free product preferred) that will allow me to have this feature that will let me know whether or not someone who has emailed me has an Outlook contact created or not?

Please provide me with the exact URL address of where I can download a version of Xobni that will allow me to do this or provide me with support information on how Xobni can be configured to do this. I need to do this within Outlook 2016 on a Windows 10 Pro computer.

Are there video encoders that encode video in fixed duration streamlets and repeat audio frames if the duration of audio frames is different from the duration of a video segment to fill up the video streamlet?

Hi,
Suppose you are looking at code and you spot some flaws. Like duplication or say some better way to write the code. Like the code is too complex with many if conditions.
But right now you dont have time to fix all of these so instead you would like to mark or jot down notes somewhere in the code so that you and someone else can also have a look at it. What are the ways in which one can do this.
I can think of one way like making a TODO. Are there any other better ways ?

Thanks

I’ve purchased a total of 3 roku streaming sticks. The first one was defective and returned it to Amazon. The second  one was defective and I also returned it. The third one I went to Best Buy and made sure that they were able to pair the remote with one of their TVs. It was able to pair at the store. However, when I get home the remote control won’t pair.

So this is the same problem with all three streaming sticks. I cannot get the remote control to pair with the stick. I have done all the troubleshooting over the phone with Roku. We have done all the resets imaginable. It’s odd that it worked just fine at the store. I bought the very same Roku that they were able to pair and brought it to my house. When I get it here it’s asking me to pair it and the pair is unsuccessful.

Very frustrating. I don’t need any of the normal advice for how to pair and troubleshoot this device. Everything has been done that could possibly be done with regards to Roku support on the phone. And the fact that it works perfectly fine at the store.

Could there be something in my house such as conflict with some other remote controls that is impeding this? Any ideas that I haven’t thought of?

I know that this is kind of an unorthidox question for this site, but I thought I'd give it a shot:

I am looking for a full explanation (in written form (not video) and need an exact link for the full description of a movie called "Slow Burn" (2005 staring Ray Liotta).  I watched the movie on cable and it is very complicated and I don't understand it.  I need a link that lists the movie's complete explanation from BEGINNING to END.  I have tried using the Google Advanced Search, but am not finding exactly what I am looking for.  I do not want to go back and forth and get an explanation of the movie typed out on Expert's Exchage.  I want a link to a webpage.

I only watched the movie once and it is still on the DVR and I can't remember having watched a movie this complicated in a long time.
