Sonicwall tz215 2 isp's 1 lan and voip.

In a nutshell my small family business has comcast as a isp and a 3d party voip provider. Comcast as a business grade isp is not good in my neck of the woods (Chicago). My research ( google) informed me that I could use a Sonicwall tz215 and a 2nd isp as a fallback in case (ie: when) comcast craps out. can I use the fully configured Cisco router (static ip's for the phones and computers and VoIP stuff ) in line from the Sonicwall. So what I'm thinking is isp/isp-->Sonicwall -->Cisco router -->dumb switch?? Can this be done --if so how?

Help Me Resurrect a Dormant Website

I hired a developer to build a retail website for me in 2011. He did it, but I moved and the MyPhP account he established for me expired. At the time, knowing how life situations can change, I asked him for a copy of the code, which he gave me although he protested because he though I would allow him to host it on his site. We also had a falling out about quality which later, made me glad I had asked for a copy of the code. I know nothing about coding. [more inside]

A facebook poll app that keeps visitors on facebook?

Looking to set-up a simple five question poll for my business. I would like the insight but can see by past visits most facebook "friends" will not click a link through to a separate page. I am not personally on facebook so I can't look for a poll I have received in the past to use. It seems so simple yet my five hours of heavy lifting haven't resulted in what am looking for... Thank you in advance! [more inside]

Looking for an IOS app to shift the pitch of my music in real time

I'm looking for an IOS app that will let me play a song from my music library at a different (chosen) pitch, on the fly, without impacting song length. I know IOS audio editors can do this but I was hoping for something that didn't require loading, editing and saving each song before listening. Any ideas? (Case you were wondering, I'm trying to re-hear my music collection, and shifting pitch is one way to do it.)

What general purpose reddit-like online communities do people use outside of the US? Do they have subreddit-type features? Do they support topical discussions? Do they have NSFW channels? Is there a Chinese or Japanese equivalent?

Need to get my tablet's cracked glass fixed without paying much.

The screen is "cracked" but actually only the glass in front is cracked. Asus won't fix it without replacing the LCD as well and they'll charge me like $200. Help me find someone who will only do what I want, and charge reasonably. [more inside]

Best basic time-tracking iOS app?

I'm looking for a basic time-tracking iOS app, to keep track of how much time I spend on which work-related activities. Older suggestions either cost a lot of money, or don't seem to be friendly enough. I don't need to be able to make invoices or anything. [more inside]

I want to write like it's 1989

I'm looking for a computer that does not have any way to connect to the internet and I can use for word processing and editing. It would be mainly for poetry. It would be great if there was a way to then transfer what I'd written to a different computer. I seem to do my best writing in Microsoft Word/Google Docs, but distractions and poor self control tend to hurt my productivity. Is there a computer out there without any bells and whistles?

Canon Vixia HF G20 mts file format and Mac

I used to use Canon Vixia HF M500 and upgraded to Canon HF G20. The video format is .mts. They open in VLC player and have interlacing lines through them. Why is the quality so bad? The M500 shoots in MPEG4 HD straight from the camera and had high quality large files. Can the G20 shoot in MPEG4 format? If not, what is the best setting to use when shooting? What is the best way to convert them on a Mac quickly while maintaining quality to upload? [more inside]
