I need help finding a piece of software that will let me transfer several large files from a computer running Windows XP. [more inside]
My C:\Users\(name) folder has 2 One Drive sub folders. One contains the contents of the One Drive. The other is named SkyDrive in its path even though it has One Drive as its external label. SkyDrive contains mostly recognizable flotsam with the exception of a Documents folder that contains 4 registration entries with various dates in 2016. The flotsam files are dated up to 2017.

I'm looking for the original, shutterstock version of this image, so I can buy it. Simple, right? It has the shutterstock watermark, and should be easy to find with keywords like woman work laptop striped shirt. Nope. Been searching for over an hour, no luck. Tried google image search, no luck. Please suggest alternate search strategies or even better, hep me find the image?
Any recommendations/ personal experience with cheap (non Logitech) webcams in 2020? (Ideally <$20 USD). There are times when I am obligated to be on webcam, but don't want to share my face nor my work space in full high definition glory. [more inside]
I work for a university in the U.S. that's tax exempt. I'd like to run some social media ads (probably FB/Instagram, possibly Twitter) about a free virtual conference we're holding. Will we get charged sales tax? If so, do you have any idea how to submit a tax exempt form to the relevant parties? [more inside]
Family documents, diaries and journals, the book I wrote but never published... my personal archive is growing as I age, and I'm wondering about storage and retrieval for future years (and future generations.) [more inside]
Seems like all the newish secure email providers keep trying to ultra-simplify their web/app interfaces. I get that for mobile that might be a thing, but even for my notebook, I want all the columns! Suggestions? If I had my way I'd say "gimme secure email product X, but let me have my Roundcube GUI" - doesn't seem to be a thing. I think for desktop clients there are options (trusty Thunderbird and maybe emClient), but not for web.
I want to show a 'blank' chart (eg a bar chart, or even better - a composite radar chart) for a prescribed set of topics. Each topic's score starts at 0, but by mouse click (or finger tapping) the score can be increased from 0 up to, say, 5. As the user scores each one, we see a more complete chart. At the end, the data (score for each topic) gets retained. Does such a tool exist? (online, app, or via a feature in a bigger product) [more inside]
I had a small crack on the back on my iPhone that I tried to epoxy- it came out a little weird??? But I just now dropped my phone and now the whole back is cracked. Can I just put a screen protector over the back? Or what other case is the best to keep my phone working? I think what I have isn’t enough and I would like this phone to continue to work for another 2-3 years. Sigh.
What is the current landscape for architectural software (plans, visualizations, VR(?), open-source, paid)? [more inside]
I am working with a non-profit that uses Google Suite for their office technology. I am trying to implement some dashboards and data tracking. In Office 365, I would use Power Query to automatically pull new data from additional spreadsheets in a specific folder into the dashboard file. Is there a parallel feature in Google Sheets?
My MacBookPro (16-inch, 2019, with 2.3GHz 8-core Intel Core i9 running Catalina 10.15.6) has suddenly developed a problem connecting to WiFi. About 1/3 of the time it cannot find any WiFi networks unless I run Wireless Diagnostics. It is not a distance issue or an issue with the WiFi network as this has happened in four separate places. In all of those places, I had connected before that very day, and re-opened my laptop to find zero networks in my WiFi listings. Turning it off and on again doesn't help. I assume it is a software rather than hardware issue since it does find all networks once I run Wireless Diagnostics. Any ideas?
I have an Amazon Alexa in my home office connected to my computer. Works well except for one very odd thing. When my computer makes an 'alert' sound — Alexa does not say 'bing'— instead she says a random string of letters and numbers. [more inside]
I've done some cursory Googling, but cannot find what I'm looking for and now turn to you for assistance. [more inside]
Looking for an issue tracker that's: free, fast, hosted or very simple to deploy, easy for non-techies to use, allows uploading or pasting in screencaps. [more inside]
I'm looking for a way for a small activist group to collectively store & access online documents like minutes and collaborative project proposals. Needs to be easily accessible with minimal technical hassle. [more inside]
What does B.B.B. mean on my Google Pixel 4XL start-up screen? [more inside]
As of this morning, the "arrangement record" button in Ableton doesn't actually start recording on an armed track--it will count in, but will not actually start recording (same result if I press record on my MIDI keyboard's transport controls). However, I can start recording by clicking the record circle on an individual clip, or if I have a clip highlighted and click "session record." Is this just a bug in the 10.1.25 update, or have I changed a setting by accident? [more inside]
This is sort of a 15-year follow-up to this question, and most links are dead. Is there an app or website that simulates a control panel, whether it's Star Trek or air traffic control or a cockpit or just sci-fi screens? [more inside]
