Microsoft(s msft) and Nokia(s nok) held a press conference on Tuesday morning to discuss Microsoft's takeover of Nokia's phone hardware and services business. Naturally, several interesting details came out about the deal and its likely impact.

Okay. Here it is. The latest episode of VGHS! If you’re a gamer and you didn’t know what VGHS is, I suggest that you view its first season. Its a must see series! Enjoy!
This is sad. Nokia is dead. Period. Microsoft bought it and now we would never see another Nokia phone in the future.

I usually use Codeblocks on my Windows partition for developing purposes. However, I noticed that most of the distros out there uses Geany as their preinstalled IDE. Since I haven’t heard of Geany yet, I fired up my Software Manager on Linux Mint and installed Geany (4 star rating with 242 reviews) on my machine.
After installing it, I pasted a C++ code and tried to build and run it. To my surprise though, it could not compile the code and is asking me for g++. So I went out for a Google search and found that it (Geany) does not have a compiler built in. However, you can actually install g++ from the repositories via Software Manager or Terminal to make Geany compile and run the code!
And since Geany is a lightweight IDE, I think I will ditch Codeblocks on Linux from now on.
Sorry for not posting lately. I was lost in the Android world trying to tinker with my Butterfly S. So far I have installed my essentials from the monster Nokia 808 Pureview. performance-wise and battery-wise though, I will still pick the Pureview. Well, enough of that, here is the guide.
Some people (like me) prefer to dual boot their machines. In dual booting, we have the full access to both partitions of our drive (Windows and Linux) except of course when Windows is on Hibernate mode. Sometimes though, we tend to see other partitions like the OEM partition. If at later part we wanted to restore our machine, we should not want to mess up with the OEM partition so that we could recover it perfectly. Right? So how would you protect it? You can hide it visually in the file manager so that when someone uses your awesome Linux installation, they won’t delete or modify files on them. So here’s how to
1. Open up Thunar File Manager (built in file manager). You can also do this by just going to a folder on your system.
2. Notice on the left sidebar that you have you drives and devices listed (just like Windows).
3. What we want is to hide some partitions right? In order to do this, we just have to right click the left sidebar and uncheck the partition we want to hide!
And that’s it! Enjoy!
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal -- based on what the paper says are interviews with current and former security officials -- the National Security Agency's surveillance program can access much more data than the agency has admitted publicly to date: as much as 75 percent of all U.S. internet traffic. The data comes from major internet nodes across the country, and most of the leading telecom companies help gather the information, the paper said late Tuesday.
