Should I just assume that a Warlock with the Fiendish Vigor invocation starts every combat with 8 temporary hp?

Warlocks have access to this invocation:

Fiendish Vigor

You can cast false life on yourself at will as a 1st-level spell, without expending a spell slot or material components.

False Life is a 1 action spell with a 1 hour duration that does this:

Bolstering yourself with a necromantic facsimile of life, you gain 1d4 + 4 temporary hit points for the duration.

Given the negligible cost in casting it (outside combat), wouldn’t every warlock just keep casting it round after round until they got 8 temporary hp which would then last 1 hour? And then do it again when those expired. And again. And …

Asus touchpad acting like click when it starts moving ubuntu 19.04

I have a problem with my laptop Asus Zenbook S13 UX391U. I can’t tell exactly when this problem appears, but usually, after a while, when I start moving the cursor, it makes a click by itself and it starts dragging the element which was below.

Creating a List View that starts with the Second Item/Row

I am creating two views of a ‘News’ List.

  1. The First View displays the most recently added item to the list.
  2. The Second View needs to display the 2nd, 3rd and 4th most recently added items.

Is there a way from within the Edit View screen, to skip the first row of a queried list?

(I am trying to render these views from within ShortPoint elements, so a normal Content Query or Content Search related solution will not work)

Konsole starts in SU mode and asks for password in every window and tab

I am a bit of a newby and I have stumbled upon an annoying thing. Everytime I open a konsole, it is in su and asks for my password. I have searched around and tried all the things recommended on this website and other to stop the console from starting in su mode. However, without succes.

My .bashrc is empty and does not hold su commands.

When typing: pstree -als $ $ I get the following:

linux-ffd2:~ # pstree -als $  $        systemd --switched-root --system --deserialize 24     └─kdeinit5                                       └─konsole         └─su -             └─bash                 └─pstree -als 26609   

So there must be a su command hidden somewhere but I cannot find it. Can anybody help me get rid of it so I can start the konsole without su and without password? Thanks!

Netffos X9 always starts each app / activity as new

I have TP-Link’s Netffos X9 and from the very beginning I noticed a weird thing. Each application or activity is always started as brand new. Always, no matter, if I saw or was using given app just like 5 minutes ago, I see loader screen and a home / startup screen, instead of the one, which I left off.

I’ve been using around a dozen different mobile devices with Android 8.1 and hundreds other with other (older) versions of Android and this is the first time I see such a weird situation.

I have enabled Developers Options and tripple-checked that option Don’t keep activities / Destroy every activity as soon as the user leaves it is disabled. I have also checked that a few applications in topic are listed among Developers options > Inactive apps as active. And yet, each time I start it up, they seems to be starting up as freshly new, showing welcome / home / startup screen.

Does anyone have any idea what is going on and how to prevent such behavior?
