samsung – How to exit and disable safe mode?

I have a Note 2 running a custom Android 6 ROM and it’s stuck in safe mode. It got stuck in safe mode once before, but I don’t recall what I did to fix it. I did have a sticky power button then, so I might have just cleaned it. At the time, I looked for a way to disable it. Now I am stuck, due to the hubris of some programmers, which seems to be the norm for software nowadays /rant.

Articles online look like keyword stuffed AI generated articles, and simply are press releases for the feature, telling you how wonderful it is, how to enter it, and in Android 10, how you can exit it from a persistent notification. Even the answers here are very similar.

I don’t think I have a stuck button this time. I’ve wiped cache in TWRP. TWRP can’t shutdown though, it just reboots into itself, which I think is odd.

The phone was having an issue where the power button was working for a double press, but not a single press or long press, and when I rebooted it to clear the issue, now I have a larger issue.

I can’t just reformat and reinstall because I have apps with settings I would need to back up, like my contacts, and some secure apps that need to be backed up within the app.

  1. How can I forcibly exit safe mode?
  2. How can I disable safe mode permanently?

macbook pro – How to disable the “Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac” notification?

So I have a 2019 Macbook Pro connected to a Caldigit TS3 Plus dock. Connected to that I have a Magic Trackpad 2 via USB cable (to charge it). It is a Bluetooth device. Every time I connected my MBP to this docking station I get this stupid notification:

Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac

And I can’t for the life of me figure out how to disable this. There’s no Bluetooth setting for the device. Clicking on “Settings” takes you to the Bluetooth System Preferences. There’s nothing I can see under Notifications Systems Preferences that pertains to this.

Now I should also mention that I connect TWO different MBPs to this same docking station and it seems like only when I change laptops does this come up but I’m not 100% sure about that (as in, I’m not 100% certain it doesn’t show up when I power the same laptop on or wake it up).

I’m actually shocked that a Google search for “Your trackpad is wirelessly connected to this Mac” (including quotes) has exactly 0 matches.

Disable daily notifications from Google Calendar App in Slack?

How do I prevent the Google Calendar App from sending me a daily notification about my events for the day? There is no setting provided to do this. My choices seem to be either not to have any Google Calendar integration at all, or for everyone who has it to receive an irritating daily notification.

(In fact, how do I prevent notifications from apps generally. It seems many — all? — apps cannot be silenced.)

nikon – Does the Interval Timer on the Z6 (or Z7) automatically disable after each sequence/series of shots?

I have the Canon RP and am disappointed to find that the Interval Timer disables itself after each sequence and must be re-enabled for every new sequence. So, every press of the shutter requires going into the menu again. I’m hoping the Z6 remains enabled until disabled by the photographer. Better, I hope it might be able to remain enabled after powering the camera off and then on again. Can anyone please advise on the Z6’s function regarding the Interval Timer? Thanks

ntp – Redhat Enterprise Linux 7: How to disable DST – Daylight Saving Time

You don’t disable DST per se, you set the desired time zone, and you get DST if the time zone has DST.

You can check the configured time zone with timedatectl.

If your timezone has DST you’ll see something like this:

(root@stonard ~)# timedatectl 
      Local time: Sat 2020-06-20 18:27:30 EDT
  Universal time: Sat 2020-06-20 22:27:30 UTC
        RTC time: Sat 2020-06-20 22:27:30
       Time zone: America/New_York (EDT, -0400)
     NTP enabled: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
 RTC in local TZ: no
      DST active: yes
 Last DST change: DST began at
                  Sun 2020-03-08 01:59:59 EST
                  Sun 2020-03-08 03:00:00 EDT
 Next DST change: DST ends (the clock jumps one hour backwards) at
                  Sun 2020-11-01 01:59:59 EDT
                  Sun 2020-11-01 01:00:00 EST

Otherwise you’ll see something like this:

(root@farshire ~)# timedatectl 
      Local time: Sat 2020-06-20 22:26:50 GMT
  Universal time: Sat 2020-06-20 22:26:50 UTC
        RTC time: Sat 2020-06-20 22:26:50
       Time zone: Etc/GMT (GMT, +0000)
     NTP enabled: yes
NTP synchronized: yes
 RTC in local TZ: no
      DST active: n/a

To change the time zone, use timedatectl set-timezone ZONE, where ZONE is a valid zoneinfo zone. For example:

# timedatectl set-timezone Europe/Kiev

g suite – Disable Google Chat banner?

In the past few days, Google Chat has started popping up a black banner any time that an unread item is available. Because of the implementation of the banner, when I select a chat room the whole Chat page shifts down to make room for the banner and ends up selecting text where I clicked, as though I had dragged across the text.

This only occurs in the Chat instance that I access via a Chrome shortcut. I don’t want to access it via normal browser link because it gets lost in a sea of browsers and browser tabs. The Windows app is quirky, so that’s out.

Just want to stop the Google Chat banners. Is there an easy solution?
