• When translating in writing, is the translation in italics or < and >, or other?

    I m writing a short story about early Greek life for a class. The Greeks obviously didn t speak English, so when I provide dialogue between them - in English - how do I write it? A: "Do I write it like this?" (But in Italics!) B: "<Do I write it like this?>" (Keeping brackets) C: other

  • Is there a way to remove every other character in a paragraph?

    The PDFs I'm sifting through are a bit messed up and have long descriptions that need to be copied into a single document. When I go to copy-paste them, every character is copied twice. Example: "However, due to production scheduling constraints" Becomes: "Hooweevveerr,, dduuee ttoo pprroodduuccttiioonn sscchheedduulliinngg... show more

Example: "However, due to production scheduling constraints" Becomes: "Hooweevveerr,, dduuee ttoo pprroodduuccttiioonn sscchheedduulliinngg ccoonnssttrraaiinnttss" Not sure why the capital 'H' is only copied once, but losing /that/ I can live with. Is there a way to remove every other character other than manually? Preferably through Excel, Word, Notepad, or similar. There are MANY documents and descriptions to go through. I know I could write a program that does this, but copying from my program software is even more tedious.

  • What should my 6th Pokémon be? [Nuzlocke, Fire Red]?

I have been training for the elite 4 and I'm assuming they'll be in the Lv 70 - 80 range for the first time around. The 5 Pokémon I currently have with approx EVs: Kingdra [240HP, 252 SpA,16 Spe] [Rain Dance, Surf, Ice Beam] Forretress [252HP, 252 SpD] [Spikes, Rapid Spin, Toxic] Starmie [252SpA, 252 Spe] [Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt] Mr Mime [252HP, 80SpA, 10 SpD, 166 Spe] [Calm Mind, Baton Pass, Psychic, Encore/Subsitute] Gyarados [100HP, 252 Att, 156 Spe] [Dragon Dance, Earthquake] I am able to get evolutions that normally need to be traded, but cannot get extra items/tms. I plan to give Calm Mind to Mr Mime to make him a baton passer. I have already used Psychic on Starmie. I plan to give Rain Dance to Kingdra. I plan to give Earthquake to Gyarados. I plan to give Toxic to Forretress. I'm considering to give Substitute to Mr Mime unless I'm giving it to a SubPuncher. Any breed moves are out of the question for this challenge. What would you recommend from this list? [All at 0 EVs] Jumpluff Lunatone Clefable Dewgong Smeargle Raichu Magneton Ninetails Rapidash Arcanine Miltank Tentacruel Gengar Walrein Crobat Weezing Victreebell Sunflora Seaking Granbull Dodrio Xatu Golduck Gorebyss/Huntail [This is a 50/50 on what it would evolve into.] I'm thinking of grabbing Smeargle for a small Baton Pass chain, but he's fragile... What's your recommendation?

I saw someone mention a similar problem and they turned vertical sync off in NVIDIA control panel s 3D settings, but I can t find this control panel.

  • How to rebind keyboard keys?

    My new keyboard is trying to be helpful for gaming by having the wasd and up, down, left, right keys interchangeable. Seems like they were stupid as hell though and instead completely swapped the two. How do I rebind the keys to normal?

Would this way work or do I need to get a disk drive?

    My monitor came with a VGA to VGA port. My motherboard has a VGA and a DVI port available. My graphics card has only a DVI port. I just turned on my computer for the first time, lit up, fans ran fine on both the cpu and gpu. After hooking my monitor up to the motherboard and pressing the power button (both for monitor and computer) the monitor failed to show anything from the computer. It turned on and gave its "BenQ" purple start-up screen, but then went into powersaver mode as if there was no input. Then I unplugged the VGA connection and it showed that cancelled - no connection - screen. I ll continue to check to make sure everything is connected properly, but any ideas of what the issue could be? (Also do I still get the full benefit of the graphics card when I m connected to the motherboard instead?)

  • Logarithmic Reduction to Percent?

    I'm having a brain fart about logarithms. I'm reading an article which claims 5.5log10 reduction is complete inactivation of viruses. This to me means it's 99.99999 percent of viruses eliminated. Yet log(5.5) in a calculator gives 0.74, I take as 74 percent viruses eliminated. What am I doing wrong?

  • Why is frequency listed for amber glass?

    Amberized NMR tubes are used for photosensitive materials, protecting them from visable and UV radiation. When looking at tubes to purchase, each product has 3 givens: - Diameter of the tubes - Length of the tubes - Frequency ?! Ranging from 50 MHz to 800 MHz from what I'm looking at now. What does this frequency mean?
