    • Google to refund buyers of 'fake' anti-virus app
      Google has decided that a smallish (for The Chocolate Factory) wad of cash is a trivial price to pay for maintaining its reputation, and has begun refunding punters who fell for the fake “virus shield” scam. Uncovered by Android Police earlier this month, the fake virus scanner was nothing more than an icon that changed shape when a user tapped it. The app h […]

    • Digging for answers: The "strong smell" of fraud from one Bitcoin miner maker
      For many crypto-minded libertarians, Bitcoin is the future of money. But that dream hasn't been helped much by the numerous high-profile legal cases involving the currency in recent years: The Bitcoin Savings and Trust hedge fund collapsed; uncertainty fueled the implosion of Mt. Gox, the currency's largest exchange; and the high-profile Silk Road […]
    • Former GitHub CEO leaves the company
      Tom Preston-Werner — founder of the immensely popular social coding site GitHub and its most prominent executive — has left the company in the wake of widely publicized sexual harassment investigation.

    • 12 ethical dilemmas gnawing at developers today
      The tech world has always been long on power and short on thinking about the ramifications of this power. If it can be built, there will always be someone who will build it without contemplating a safer, saner way of doing so, let alone whether the technology should even be built in the first place. The software gets written. Who cares where and how it' […]
    • Even the most secure cloud storage may not be so secure, study finds
      Some cloud storage providers who hope to be on the leading edge of cloud security adopt a "zero-knowledge" policy in which vendors say it is impossible for customer data to be snooped on. But a recent study by computer scientists at Johns Hopkins University is questioning just how secure those zero knowledge tactics are.Tags: cloudSecurity […]
    • Most but not all sites have fixed Heartbleed flaw
      The world's top 1,000 websites have been patched to protect their servers against the "Heartbleed" exploit, but up to 2% of the top million were still vulnerable as of last week, according to a California security firm. On Thursday, Menifee, Calif.-based Sucuri Security scanned the top 1 million websites as ranked by Alexa Internet, a subsidia […]
    • Six clicks: Top six camera phones compared
      It's difficult to judge the camera capture capability of most high-end phones today because with the right lighting and setup you can capture great photos with nearly all of them. I took the latest and greatest phones out for a spin this weekend and tried to see if any device stood out from the rest. I took photos using the Samsung Galaxy S5, Apple iPho […]

      The question of whether online broadcast television is to remain in the hands of a stodgy industry that once declared the VCR the enemy is being put directly before the Supreme Court.

Mengedit tampilan grub linux mint 8

Terkadang bosan juga melihat tampilan grub yang gitu-gitu aja,
makanya klo diganti mungkin akan sedikit lebih seru kali yupz,,,,

Oke,
mari kita mulai dengan mengedit grub.cfg dengan menggunakan nano atau jika anda lebih senang menggunakan text editor lain boleh diganti dengan text editor kesayangan anda dan jangan lupa di backup grub.cfg sebelum memulai. masuk ke terminal lalu ketikkan :
sudo nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg
lalu masukkan password anda,
maka anda akan melihat tampilan seperti ini :

cari menuentry “Linux Mint 8 Helena, linux 2.6.31-14-generic (/dev/sda5)”
ubah tulisan yang berada di dalam tanda kutip sesuai selera anda sebagai contoh :
menuentry “Linux nu paling cool”

dan juga menu entry yang lain yang ingin anda ubah.
Lalu setelah selesai diedit kemudian save dengan menekan Ctrl – O lalu enter kemudian exit dengan menekan Ctrl – X.
ok, sekarang anda telah selesai mengedit menu di grub.

Lalu bagaimana mengedit gambar background defaultnya?
Mari kita bahas cara mengganti backgroundnya, secara default background yang dapat digunakan di grub adalah yang berekstensi .png, jadi jika anda ingin mengganti background grub di linux mint anda harus menggunakan gambar yang berekstensi .png.

Tapi bagaimana klo gambar yang saya punya berekstensi .jpg?
Gunakan gimp untuk mengconvert gambar tersebut dan atur ukurannya menjadi :
lebar = 640 pixels
tinggi = 480 pixels

lalu letakkan di /boot/grub
kemudian edit lagi grub.cfg dengan nano,
cari baris ini :
if background_image /boot/grub/Orphen.png ; then
ganti Orphen.png sesuai dengan nama gambar anda.

Huft….
Akhirnya beres juga,
sekarang restart komputer anda dan lihat perubahannya.
Jreng….jreng…..jreng….
