gps tracking – Prevent Samsung Galaxy A8 from pausing Google Maps location sharing

I want to be able to locate a Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) running Android 9 at all times with Google Maps location sharing.

Problem is, if the device isn’t used for a while, the phone’s location stops being updated. But if the phone is merely touched so that it displays the lock screen, the location gets updated right away. So I guess the device goes to sleep and disables features such as GPS.

Without success, I have tried disabling every battery saving feature I can find, and granted full permissions to the Google Maps app. I have experimented with all these settings I’ve found under Settings > Device Care > Battery:

* Power mode > Optimised|Medium power saving|Maximum power saving
* Power mode > Adaptive power saving (OFF)
* Settings > Adaptive battery (OFF)
* Settings > Put unused apps to sleep (OFF)
* Settings > Sleeping apps (Google Maps not included)
* Settings > Auto disable unused apps (OFF)
* Settings > Optimise settings (OFF)

What more settings can I try to solve the problem?

finder – Change File Picker Dialog folder location (avoid latest visited folder)

Whenever a File picker dialog (MacOs Catalina) is being open by a website or in general within the operating system, the UI shows as a default folder the latest used/visited one.

Let’s consider this typical workflow:

  1. I’m saving a file in Word using the Save button, which brings up a File Picker Dialog and I save my document in let say ~/Desktop/myfolder
  2. After some time (even hours later) a website prompts me for a file Upload, which opens the same File Picker Dialog
  3. Here’s the issue: File Picker Dialog opens – by default- into the latest used folder from the Picker Dialog, so the file Picker UI will show files in ~/Desktop/myfolder.

This is pretty inconvenient as it can expose privacy files when screen-sharing or having someone next on me when using the MacOS.

Is it possible to use a Default folder for the file picker that opens up always for example in ~/Desktop or just ~ ?

google pixel – Prevent Android from changing language based on location

I’m on vacation in a different country on a trip that did not include knowing a new language.

It’s not everywhere but enough to be annoying. Latest, changing language of buttons on a Google Form that’s never seen the language during its creation or previous uses. Before that, suggested videos on YouTube are all in Spanish.

Want to assign the swap file to E drive.

geolocation – Where are the location settings on zenfone 5?

I can’t find the GPS settings on the ZenFone 5 (ZE620KL), on Android 9.
I am specifically interested in the location mode, with 3 different values (high accuracy, battery saving, device only).


Asus has rolled out Android 9 to ZenFone 5.
I don’t have a Security & Location entry in the Settings menu.
Here is what my menu looks like:

Valid XHTML.

Once in Security & lock screen, I have this:

Valid XHTML.

I can’t find where to choose the location mode. All I have is an ON/OFF switch.

drivers – Changing Tensorflow PTXAS location

I am currently trying to custom train a neural network using tensorflow 2.4.0 with a RTX 3070 running CUDA 11.0 and and CUDNN 8.

I am having this wierd issue where I can train the model, but I can’t actually get any output because when I run:

output = model(x)
I am met with the following message and my jupyter kernel automatically restarts.

2021-01-08 20:52:53.437668: W tensorflow/stream_executor/gpu/ Falling back to the CUDA driver for PTX compilation; ptxas does not support CC 8.6
2021-01-08 20:52:53.437690: W tensorflow/stream_executor/gpu/ Used ptxas at /usr/local/cuda-11.0/bin/ptxas
2021-01-08 20:52:53.438427: W tensorflow/stream_executor/gpu/ Unimplemented: /usr/local/cuda-11.0/bin/ptxas ptxas too old. Falling back to the driver to compile.
Relying on driver to perform ptx compilation. 
Modify $PATH to customize ptxas location.

As a test I have installed CUDA 11.1 and 11.2 and readjusted the $PATH variables accordingly, but tensorflow seems to default to using the ptxas version in the CUDA 11.0 folder.

What can I do to point tensorflow towards the 11.1 and 11.2 version of PTXAS instead of the 11.0 version?
