iTunes always reset the “Automatically Back Up” option to “This Computer”

So, this section of iTunes idevice option always keeps resetting to “This Computer” from “iCloud”, whenever the sync finishes / the device is reconnected.

enter image description here

Is there any guess why this is happening, even though iCloud Backup is turned on in my idevice’s settings? Any solution I can try to do?

Which software can take a batch of classified images and automatically learn from them to classify automatically furthe rimages?

I have a Lightroom library that contains some photos I classified myself and some other ones (in both cases, thousands) not yet classified.

I want to automatically classify images based on the tags I assigned to the images I already classified.

Most steps (I use Lightroom) are simple:

  • write XMP files
  • filter the files according to the tags
  • feed each set of images (one set per tag) to a software
  • use the output of the software to write new XMP files
  • instruct Lightroom to reload metadata from XMP files.

However, which (artificial intelligence) software can I use for the purpose?

The question is asked here in Photo because I’m asking about a ready or almost ready package, not about about which software/package to use when programming a new AI.

Automatically mounting S3 bucket using s3fs on Amazon CentOS

I have tried all the answers provided in similar questions but none is helpful.

I installed S3 Fuse so that I can mount S3 bucket. After the installation, I performed the following the steps:

I created the mount point for S3 bucket; mkdir –p /var/s3fs-drive-fs

I am able to mount the S3 bucket in the new directory with the IAM role by running the following commands: s3fs myresearchdatasets /var/s3fs-drive-fs -o iam_role=EC2-to-S3-Buckets-Role -o allow_other, and it works fine.

However, I found out that the bucket disappears each time I reboot the system, which means I have to run the command above to remount the S3 bucket each time after restarting the system.

I found the steps to complete an Automatic mount at reboot by editing the fstab file with the lines below

s3fs myresearchdatasets /var/s3fs-drive-fs fuse_netdev,allow_other,iam_role=EC2-to-S3-Buckets-Role,umask=777, 0 0

To check whether the fstab is working correctly, I tried mount /var/s3fs-drive-fs/

but I got the following errors, “mount: can’t find /var/s3fs-drive-fs/ in /etc/fstab”

Can anyone help me please?

Boot automatically into Debian instead of busybox/initrd?

I’m using an old TS-7500 ( rugged platform for a home automation project (it was a freebie from my college) and I want to get the platform to boot into the Debian image automatically, by default, it boots into “busybox/initrd” and I have to enter the exit command to boot into Debian.

I want to make the system start up without any user-interaction so that if the platform power-cycles, it will start up without my assistance.

I’ve got a little Linux experience, but still not terribly great. Any suggestions?

Also… The /initrd directory looks like this:


ts7500:~# ls /initrd bin      linuxrc-fastboot         linuxrc-usbroot  root    tmp dev      linuxrc-nandmount        lost+found       sbin    ts7500.subr etc      linuxrc-sdmount          mnt              shinit  usr lib      linuxrc-sdroot           modules.tar.gz   slib    var linuxrc  linuxrc-sdroot-readonly  proc             sys 

Theshinit` script prompts upon boot (into busybox) that the user has information about help. It seems that I could execute some commands from this script, if only I could save changes! Every time I’ve tried changing the file, the changes are lost at reboot. I’ve read that this is due to the busybox platform loading into RAM?

Here’s what the shinit file looks like:

> # Copyright (c) 2009, Technologic Systems. > # All rights reserved. >  > . /ts7500.subr >  > case $  - in *i*) >         stty ospeed 115200 >/dev/null 2>&1 >         echo >         echo "Type 'tshelp' for help" esac 

Maybe I could just add the exit command to this script, but again, I can’t save it!!!

Thank you!

How to automatically attach folder actions to all added subfolders recursively?

TL;DR How do you make a folder action that attaches folder actions to added subfolders? Is that even possible?

My end goal is to convert gps/location-based reminders of specific locations (e.g. home/work) into iBeacon-triggered reminders. I have an iBeacon reminders app, but I rarely use it mainly because it’s buggy and it’s not as convenient as asking Siri to remind me of things.

I have the iBeacon triggering of reminders for these locations worked out. But I want to be able to create the reminders using Siri, e.g. “Hey Siri, remind me to ‘X’ when I get to work”, and have that set up the iBeacon-triggered reminder. Siri will already create a location based reminder in the reminders app and I know that related files are created in ~/Library/Calendars and I know how to tell which folder there-in contains the reminder events. I even know how to parse the ics files and translate which locations correspond to which iBeacons. I can do all that, but the hard part is reliably and in a timely and efficient fashion, catching the reminder-creation event so I can do the conversion to my iBeacon reminder system. All I have to do is, when a reminder is created, copy the reminder text into the place where the iBeacon event can grab it and issue the reminder.

I could poll the contents of ~/Library/Calendars every so often, but I have a lot of large calendar files with lots of events, so it would be better if I could do this via folder actions. Each event is a separate ics file. However, they’re distributed among multiple .caldav/.calendar/ directories. And I’d like this strategy to be able to cope with the creation of new directories/calendars.

So I was thinking that I could create a folder action attached to ~/Library/Calendars that itself attaches folder actions which attach folder actions which parse .ics files to pull out the location, arrive/leave event type, and the summary to create the iBeacon reminders. But that seems kind of fragile and complex. Theoretically it seems like it could work, though I don’t know what issues I might run into. I don’t even know if a folder action can attach a folder action. Has anyone done anything remotely similar to this?

Or does anyone know of another way to have Siri create iBeacon reminders? (For those curious: I bought an app called Beecon which can trigger webhook calls based on iBeacon enter/exit events. My plan is to have it trigger IFTTT iOS notifications, among other things.)
