If I make the payment the same day, say, without first waiting for the return forms to be delivered in San Francisco, then they get this weird payment in advance and I'm not sure how it would be properly linked with the paper after the fact. But if I try to schedule the payment so that it falls after when I guess the return will arrive in San Francisco, then I've sent in a 1040 stating I owe but which doesn't include any payment (and I don't see, like, a box to check stating my intent to pay online).
Can anyone advise which way around I ought to go?
But actually, I'm struggling with this. What I came up with in limited time without others' input, so that I didn't spend all day and actually went back to getting work done, was this:
parmassi nar ilquenen
But I don't feel very confident about it.
For one thing, there is no attested word for "library", so we risk winding up with one of those neologistic kennings which often sound so silly in literal translation (I saw "flour-grass" for corn or grain plants and was like ugh). This is a plural form of parmassë, parma "book" + -ssë as an abstract ending, apparently coined by David Salo. I don't like it much, as it seems vague, but none of the ones that meant things like book-building, book-hoard, etc. were better IMO.
Ilquen "everybody" apparently comes from the material published posthumously in The War of the Jewels; see http://eldamo.org/content/words/word-
For that matter I'm not even sure I've conjugated the verb properly. "To be" is one of those minefields of irregularity and variation - see http://eldamo.org/content/words/word-
Or I might be barking up the wrong alda to want to form the phrase so strictly like English; perhaps some other phrasing would express the idea more fluidly (as I could see there were some variations in the primary-world-language signs that were not literally built of the blocks "libraries", "are", "for", "everyone").
( P.S. )
5.3.2 is the update that included Alexa, Amazon's answer to Siri or Cortana, which I immediately disabled, so I don't think it's that Alexa is listening all the time. It's not the wifi (turning that off has no effect, and leaving it on all night was never a problem before) or Bluetooth. A battery monitor and wakelock detector reveal that there's no particular app doing the battery suck, it's just that the CPU is being held awake large percentages of time (90% in the case of last night) for... no reason I can determine, leading to 20-30% battery drain overnight instead of ~5% as had previously been the case. The native email app is the worst offender as far as the number of times it wakes the CPU (it must be something like twice or three times a second), but it only gets ~10 minutes total wake time over an 8 hour night and accounts for only a couple percent of the battery drain. A lot of the wakelocking seems to be by the kernel and I just can't fathom what's going on.
1. An MP3 player - just needs basic playback controls (play/stop/pause/skip) and ability to shuffle a playlist or files in a folder. Subdirectory recursion not required as the source files will all be in the same folder.
2. A slideshow - i.e. take image files in a folder and display them in fullscreen mode, shuffled in random order, for a variable length of time per image. Subdirectory recursion again not required. Option to display or not display the filename as a small text caption on the screen would be a plus. Option to scale the pictures to the height or width of the screen (not stretch to fill, but maintain proportion) also a plus.
The big idea here is that I wanted to try the slideshow thing out for the meetup at PCon, but that there is not a convenient place to put our laptop next to the room TV (which is not itself movable, nor would running a cable across the room be a good idea). But the Pi is tiny and would fit, so was there a way we could make that work, and while we were at it, could we also make it the jukebox and ditch having the laptop taking up space entirely?

Related, is there anywhere I can get Helvetica font, or possibly some kind of lookalike, without having to pay an amount of license money that makes no sense for the project in mind? (I thought of trying to do the design on a Mac, which may be possible, but I'm not sure.)

I've tried to do some Googling about what is best practice in this situation but am not coming up with much, other than disquieting suggestions that Windows 10 is broken with RAIDS (things like the OS not being able to see RAIDed disks after moving from 7 or 8 to 10, etc.). Apparently later versions of Windows are using something called "Storage Spaces" to accomplish similar effects. That's a village I may have to pillage when I get there.
I feel intuitively that what I ought to do is first un-RAID the two drives (stop mirroring) before attempting to muck about with the OS. (I assume that would in turn mean at least having to rebuild the mirror afterwards, possibly even having to reformat the second drive first. And paranoia tells me I ought to first back up everything valuable on a third external drive or something as well.) But I can't find anyone directly instructing to do so. Advice?
No matter what I do I can't seem to get the scanner to appear under the File > Import menu with its own name like it used to, only the general File > Import > WIA Support option (which was always there too, but which I never used). I feel like that might be related, but I've installed all the versions of the driver I can find (HP offers three, a "basic feature" driver, a "TWAIN driver and utilities" that might be useless because I read that you can't use TWAIN in 64-bit Photoshop, and a rather large full software suite I don't really need) and none seem to have the desired effect.

One presumes they meant non-invasive...
In other news, does anyone have any suggestions for where I might start looking into car stereos? Just, like, some resource to make sense of what's available out there, compare models, etc. when I have no idea where to even start. I'm not an audiophile (obviously), I'm just looking to replace my factory stereo with one that can play digital music.
I ordered chirashi sushi today at a restaurant. I recognized everything in it (ohboy. Maguro, sake, ikura, tai, hamachi, tamago, tako, kani, possibly hokkigai, ebi, shiro maguro or ono?... um, I think that's all the meat? then wakame, shiso leaf, daikon...) except a slice of something that was similar in shape to the long, thin, triangular slice of carrot, but it was yellow and pebbly. It tasted vaguely seafoody, but then it was buried in among all the fish, so that may not be telling. It was a bit chewy, not soft and tender like raw fish, nor crunchy like the carrot. Looking at pictures of uni and considering its expense, I'm pretty sure it wasn't that (although I could be wrong), especially since that's listed in the restaurant's "super chirashi" which isn't what I ordered.
Soo... what the hell did I just eat?
Bonus points for telling me how I might go about transferring it to a different registrar, if I did manage to get my hands on it. (I understand there are, at the very least, waiting periods involved...)
I haven't yet tried igHome, which seems to operate more like what I have in mind, though I imagine the selection of widgets will be limited. Nor have I looked back at My Yahoo since... like... a silly "Web 2.0" project I had to do for work back in 2007. Maybe I should.
