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 Afternoon Everyone,

       I am wondering if the charging port of an iPhone 5 and iPhone 6 can be used as a data port.  The reason I ask is that I wish to transfer or backup data stored on the iPhone 5 to my laptop and transfer it to the iPhone 6 when it arrives.  The charging port is the only USB like port I see on it, which I am assuming is micro-USB because it is too small to be a standard USB port.  That said, I believe I will need a micro-USB to standard USB cable.  My USB ports on this laptop are 2.0 and not 3.0.

       Thank you

Hello and Good Morning Everyone,

           My fiancee is getting ready to upgrade from an iPhone 5 to an iPhone 6 which brings me to the point of this upcoming question.   How can she keep her old telephone number on the iPhone 5 when she upgrades to the iPhone 6?  In other words, can she possibly transfer her old telephone number to the new iPhone 6?  Her carrier is AT&T.

           Thank you

I had iOS 10 and certain apps from App Store asked me for at least iOS 11. So I made an update these days over WiFi to iOS 12. My iPad was not subject of jailbreak. It is iPad Air first generation with cellular model A1475.
After update to iOS 12 it did not charge anymore while the iPad/iOS was started/on. It was charging only when was turned off.
I decided to repair/update/restore the iOS using PC with Windows 8.1, iTunes latest version and USB cable. It downloaded the iOS 12 latest version on PC, the process started and somewhere at 20% of the process everything stopped with an error 14 as seen below. I repeated the process several times, changed the PC and the cable and I am stuck there. I have tried then all kind of 3rd party software to revive it (for example 3utools) and the Restore process is blocked always at about 20%. I tried again iTunes, but the same bad result. I have read couple of days on internet different pages with suggestions, methods and I think I have tried everything what I have read. Now I am out of ideas and I refuse to believe is a hardware problem
I do not have a backup in PC neither in the cloud and I do not care if the data on it is lost. I just want to have the iPad with a workable iOS, even if it is downgraded to previous versions.
Any suggestions how to revive is appreciated, even if I have to erase everything and re-flash from scratch with any previous iOS.

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I am wondering if it is possible to purchase a 3rd party piece of hardware, like a special remote control, which is voice activated to manipulate basic cable tv functions like adjusting volume, changing channels, carrying out searches for specific television shows and movies, etc.  I did contact my cable provider, AT&T, and found out that they do not have a voice-activated remote control.  That said, is there any other options to consider here or am I at a dead end?

        Thank you.

Planing marriage and property distribution
---------------------
I agree with the view that, this is the right time to start searching a groom for NANCY. As I had already explained to mother regarding this subject, The solution is, let get over the property distribution process, then we will get to know how much share NANCY’s family is going to own, based on the outcome we can make a better decision for her life. Apart from that, MARIA also in the pipeline for similar reason, possibly within a period of 1-2 years, the above solution will fix the issue once for all. By doing so, will get the opportunity to know, Do they even need any support system at all from outside. Moreover, As for as NANCY’s family concern, the property they expected to get, none but she is going to own it as no other heir to share it. Regarding MARIA,  having $1 Million property with clear title in hand, which they can liquidate anytime, PLUS agri land which they are anticipating, aggregate of the both, would be more than sufficient not just for her marriage, even for next family generation needs. Now, If we go with your thought process for NANCY’s, then people would expect to apply same logic in case of MARIA also.

Having said that, Uncle categorically agreed to take care of all monetary expenses which would incur for her marriage. I made this to happen because neither he looked after BOTH families after their guardian passed away, nor done any justice yet to get their share of the property, and …

===  Giving advise to distribute family property which has been pending ... casing problems in a family
Uncle's lackadaisical attitude getting things even worse for each passing day to get our due share from the joint property, on which PAUL lifeline solely depended on. The delay made us to lose all Govt benefits for every now and then, very lately allowances which has started giving away for every 6 months based on size of land, and typical loan waivers offered when every new Govt assumes the office, which has been going on since ages. The sum total so far has been very huge and counterproductive so far to NASAR progress too. If this situation lingers for more time, In the prevailing social landscape, and with the changing Govt policies with the time, then it is almost impossible to dream to get the due share in property our lifetime. This effect already visible in the form of huge mistrust brewing while distributing crop share amount to relevant shareholders. For all these kind of nonsensical things I hold him responsible.

In conclusion, Let Uncle react positive to culminate property distribution process, the subsequent process would be transparent everyone to see how to plan their future support system and needs. This is an opportunity to all of us, what they are going to own vis-a-vis Needed in future, else Uncle has to take care of all expenses End-2-End for GIRL1 marriage and also for one more similar on the cards offing now. Now entire onus lies on him. Otherwise,…

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

           With so much division being stirred up because of a proposed U.S. / Mexico border wall, I have to wonder the following:  What has history said about the effectiveness of a wall like back in Roman times, The Great Wall of China, etc. ?

            Any historical perspective given to this current state of affairs will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

        I am wondering where I can go to figure out how much an India 1940 One Rupee King George~ black serial # 519609 is worth.  There is also another identifier on it Q at the top with 44 underneath of it which is to the left of the mentioned serial number.

        My search for this bill has led to a variety of online market estimates.  However, I can not find one with this exact serial number which might play a role in its market value.

        Any shared thoughts or suggestions regarding this question will be greatly appreciated.

        Thank you

My contractor ran fiber cables between floors.  Today I noticed there's an interesting transition connection from thicker cable to the thinner one.  Taped over with while electrical tape.
I didn't have that fiber patch panel.  They install it all.  Taped like that on both end of terminations.

  Does anyone know if this is how its done normally and should I worry about it?  Thanks.

Good evening !
Having had to buy a new computer, I tried to transfer my Acrobat XI Pro from my old hard disk to the new one.
After many trials to make it work, I finally found out that my soft was a "fake" one, according to the Adobe official site, which did not recognize my user key.

I bought it (~$300.-) from "Buy Tech Solutions" in 2015. At the time it downloaded without problem and worked perfectly all those years….
I did a research on Internet and found a news Item confirming that "Buy Tech Solutions" went out of business un 2016 (?) and most probably was a "pirate" company.
I also found out that Adobe discontinued downloaded type of software and only works with monthly/yearly subscriptions on products that are linked to the Cloud.
As far as I am concerned, I DO NOT want to send my personnal documents, photos or anything on whatever Cloud that be.

I thus want to buy a soft that I can download on my computer and use only therein.
Searching the Inernet I found "PDF Creator 10" from "Software Marketing Ltd.".

Thus, my question is :
Is "Software Marketing Ltd." to be trusted and is its product safe ? In order for me to avoid the mishap described above.

Thanking whoever will be kind enough to enlighten me, I wish the Community a very happy Christmas !

With kind regards,
Newbye

I am looking for some wireless earbuds to use around the house and at the gym. I am concerned about sound quality, but I also get headaches from larger, noise-cancelling headphones. (I am not sure if this is solely from the physical headphones or if there is something in the noise cancellation that causes a headache.)

I do not like earbuds with the rubberized/gummy feel to them. Those are uncomfortable and never seem to fit my ears properly. I also would prefer some that were not too loud to people sitting around me, as I tend to crank the volume up.

I am mainly considering AirPods, but I want to be sure that is my best choice. I have a pair of basic Apple earbuds right now, and they fit my ears well. I am looking to spend under $200. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
