The Brilliant Booting Android Marriage Proposal
'Last month, Reddit user NoShftShck16 posted a seemingly random question to the /r/Android subreddit, asking if it was possible to slow down the boot time of a Galaxy Nexus. He explained that he had bought the smartphone and a ring, and he wanted to modify the bootloader to load a script at a rate slow enough for him to display his custom marriage proposal.'

Next time you watch Inglourious Basterds; the giant swastika that crashes to the floor in the floor in the fire at the end?

Learn to Hack | TuxRadar Linux
Essential disclaimer: Hacking is bad/illegal Mmmmmkay? If it's not your computer and you're doing bad stuff, anyway.

'There are two rules of computer security: one – don’t buy a computer; and two – if you have to buy a computer, don’t turn it on. If you break these rules then you’ll be opening yourself up to potential problems. No system is 100% safe from hackers, but by following a few simple steps you can make yours much harder for intruders to attack.'
