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.

Anyone out there an expert in this?  I would gladly pay someone to give me a hand setting this up.  I have done a lot, but I have reached an impasse as I cannot play the game within Broadcaster and so I cannot effectively stream.  I see myself, but my game pauses as I alt-tab out to play through Broadcaster.  I'm lost at this point!

Hi,

I uploaded an XLSX file to Google docs but can't open it.

  • When I click directly on the file,, the browser hangs.
  • When I try to open with Google Sheets, I'm told the file is too large...but it is definitely no.t

What could cause the above issues?
Thanks,
Steve

Hi

I got a Trademark for my new .com website.

how do I test that it legally exists? Is it international?

I once got booted off a .com I owned because someone in Australia but have taken a trademark out on my domain.

A whois on the domain name isn't as useful as I hoped. Luckily, my real-name is not visible. Can people discover my name on whois?

Were they supposed to have mailed me a verification package?

Thanks

Is there a feature available within a Samsung Galaxy S8 to allow rings and notifications only from certain phone numbers? This feature is available for iPhones and now I'm trying to figure out how to activate this feature on a Samsung Galaxy S8 cell phone

This is a very important feature for me to have while I'm sleeping and only want to be disturbed by certain people.

I'm going to be starting a project where I need to be able to answer my phone 24 hours a day.

I also need to be able to completely silence all other alerts from my phone so the only times I will be woken up will be if someone calls or texts my Google voice number.

Is there a way to completely turn off new call, email, & text alerts on Samsung Galaxy S8 accept for Google Voice alerts?

What are the tax implications for being paid on a 1099 (All Inclusive) basis?

Does this mean that I as the employee will have to pay both my share as well as the employer's share of the social security tax?

Are there any other additional or higher taxes that have to be paid by me while being paid on a 1099 basis as opposed to a W2 basis?

Is it safe to plug 90 watt power adapter directly into a Lenovo T440 laptop?

Or can this power adapter only be used and plugged into a port replicator?

How much does Box.com charge for storing files in the cloud?

I have seen that they say that you can store an unlimited number of files in the cloud but I haven't found where they mention how much this costs for storing large amounts of files.

Hi Guys,

i wanted to purchase an Intel Compute Stick to run a some basics, powerpoint, VNC software, AV. nothing intense!

i wanted it to be windows 10 pro but none of the sticks come pre-installed with it. you can purchase an upgrade through the Windows App store but reading online many people have had issues with this. and also many people have had issues with the stick breaking and then having to re-purchase the licence for the 10 upgrade on the replacement unit due to no product key being given.

so does anyone have hands on experience with upgrading these to 10 pro? are they reliable?

does anyone know an alternative which would also run windows 10 pro out the box?

what do i need the stick for: to plug into a monitor and be used as a display board. need to be able to remotely connect to this on our domain to up-date the slideshow or information being displayed.

all help appreciated,

Peggiegreg

I need to get the name of a Ruby Ridge/Randy Weaver TV documentary that I saw in January 2003.

The documentary focused on the brutality and excessiveness used by the federal government to bring the Weaver family into custody.

I saw the documentary either on either Court TV (now Tru TV), Discovery, or A&E.

The documentary is narrated by a man with an eerie voice.

The documentary ends with the words "5 months later the negotiator was given a second chance. This time he also failed miserably," and shows the Waco compound going up in flames.

I have been trying to locate this documentary but so far haven't been able to do so.

Does anyone have any information on the name of this documentary or how I might be able to purchase it?

Or, is it available on a website such as You Tube?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I purchased a 13" wall clock tonight on ebay.  Unfortunately, it is missing the battery cover as indicated within their picture and description.  The link to this clock is https://picclick.com/1999-Warner-Bros-Westclox-Talking-Clock-Preowned-253022073451.html just in case anyone needs a visual of this clock to get a better understanding of the right size for the battery cover.  Hopefully, the battery cover will be easy to find.  

            Any guidance regarding this question will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

            George
