  • Translate this number for me?

    Expressed with a 0 at the front and decimal places afterward, what would the 0.000XXXXXX whatever value be?

    2.94E-06

    Also, how do you arrive at this translation? I saw this number posted on a forum recently referring to the amount of something but am unsure as to how to read it.

  • Why does my computer select youtube controls and not allow me to scroll up and down the page using arrow keys?

    Whenever I go to a YouTube page in firefox, I find that the video window is automatically selected as the focus for my keyboard controls. So when I press the up and down keys, the volume is adjusted. When I press the directional keys for left or right, the video's progress is moved forward or back. If I press the space bar, the video is paused or set to play.

    Why is my browser automatically selecting the YouTube video as the focus for my UI interactions. How can I fix this?

  • Can I transfer money via email to a business account?

    I want to send money from my personal bank account to a business bank account in an amount in the mid 4 digit range. Can I do this or can I send an email money transfer only to a personal bank account? Also, what does some one need to do to actually receive the money I send them if they use a participating bank in Canada? It would be a transfer between CIBC and BMO.

  • How do i remove this faucet so I can replace the rubber seal?

    I am trying to figure out how to remove the top of this faucet as seen in the following picture.

    Any idea how I do that? I tried unscrewing the long tip but there's nothing there that would aid me in removing the faucet top. It's just an extended decorative piece.

  • List of equipment needed for a radio station?

    Putting aside for a moment the complicated stuff like applying to the CRTC for a chance to compete with the local established stations yadda yadda yadda; what kind of equipment is needed (specifically what items) to start an FM radio station? If you had a big budget and were told to buy only the necessary items for a radio station to broadcast to a small city, what would you buy. Make me a list if you can.

    Also, assuming a fairly flat city, what kind of transmitter would be needed to broadcast over a city the size of...well let's say half the size of Winnipeg, MB.

    And come to think of it, regarding the CRTC licensing, any idea what kind of fee that is?

    Thanks for reading my semi-scatterbrained question.

  • Chronic Heartburn or Ulcer?

    I usually don't make it into the doctor and now is no different but I'm wondering if I should make some time to do so. I have had chronic heartburn on some level for ages...possibly as long as a year. Sometimes it's barely noticeable but there if I think about it for some reason and other times, it's top of mind because of how badly the burning sensation is.

    If I get the heartburn and drink water, it only gets worse and it also gets worse if I eat acidic foods such as oranges. In fact, either of these things will prolong symptoms and make it nearly unbearable. Milk also does not help as it only seems to temporarily reduce symptoms. By temporarily, I mean less than half a minute. Kind of like pouring water on one's hand but not taking it out of the the fire.

    Is this likely some how related to my more immediate dietary habits or could it be some sort of ulcer? Opinions?

    And yes, I will be seeing my doctor about this if I can make some time to do so in the next couple of weeks but in the mean time, I'm wondering what you might think.

  • Foods For a Long Trip That Don't Require A Cooler?

    So here's the deal. I work away from home quite a bit and most recently, have gotten a contract out in the middle of nowhere. One of those situations where fuel needs to be delivered to us because it's too far out of our way to go gas up every so often.

    I need to stock up with some common food items that will enable me to "graze" throughout the day here and there and provide basic nutrition for some meals at the beginning and end of the day. Prep time is minimal if existent at all and refrigeration is not available in this instance.

  • Error Message "Boot Device Not Found"?

    I have an HP Pavillion DV7 laptop and every so often, when I close the lid and leave the laptop for an hour or more, I open the lid only to find a message saying "Boot Device Not Found." If I Reboot the computer, I get the boot menu for windows asking me if I want to start in safe mode.

    As well, the laptop is very very hot when this message comes up. So hot that I can almost burn myself on one area of it in particular.

    Is this potentially an issue of a failing hard drive or a software problem?

  • Which is the better processor?

    I am looking at the minimum requirements for a game and I'm not sure if I meet, do not meet or exceed them. The only thing that's throwing me is the processor. I know everything else is fine but I don't know if my processor is better or worse than the one listed in the min' requirements.

    The game calls for (at minimum) an Intel E7500 Core 2 Duo or AMD Athlon X2 6400+

    I have an Intel Core2 Quad Mobile Processor Q9000.

    Will my quad core in my laptop perform better (rated at 2.0Ghz) than the duo which is a desktop processor that runs at 2.93 Ghz.

  • Can I make an internal hard drive into external drive? (IDE connection)?

    I have an older hard drive I would like to recover data from. Unfortunately, the only extra computer I have with IDE connections to the motherboard is not in working condition and so i can not simply slip the drive in as a slave and get the data that way.

    Is there a way that I could somehow connect this hard drive to another computer to get the data off of it as an external hard drive?

  • I mixed some 80W-90 oil with my 15-30 in the reservoir. Is this going to hurt my engine?

    I asked a question about this earlier but some investigation has led me to find that in fact I put some TRAXON 80W-90 oil in my reservoir which already contains some 15W-30 oil. Is this going to stress the oil pump or otherwise cause damage to my engine?

    This is for a heavy truck (Western Star) with a CAT engine. And yes...I'm as smart as a bag of hammers I know.

  • Forced Browser Redirects Adware?

    For quite some time now, about 5-10 percent of the time I click on a google search result, I am led to a parked domain like page full of text link ads. For instance if I search for "puppies" I might get something like the daily puppy website. I will go to click on the link and end up at a page full of text link ads and such. I push the back button and see that indeed the link I clicked on wasn't visited and so I click on it again and get to the site I wanted to go to.

    is there a known type of adware or malware that does this that I can get rid of easily? Lava soft doesn't seem to find anything.

  • Dual Canadian/US citizenship by paternity?

    The details:

    --I am 25 and was born in British Columbia, Canada.

    --My Father was born in Cleveland Ohio and left the United States at the age of 25 or 26.

    --My Mother is a Canadian citizen and was born in Toronto Ontario, Canada.

    While taking a dry run across the boarder, the boarder agent informed me that it is possible that I may automatically qualify for American citizenship as my father resided in the United States beyond the age of 19. Is this so? She was unfortunately not able to give me solid information but attempted to be as helpful as possible.

    I would like to obtain dual American/Canadian citizenship but am unsure as to how I would go about this given the facts above. Does anyone know what I would have to file and who I would have to file it with to obtain my dual citizenship? The boarder agent said that if the facts above are so, I would not even have to take a citizenship test, it is supposed to just be granted automatically.
