    I had to RE-install Linux on my Motorola RAZR v8. If I had to do it again, I'd rather throw the phone out. I can't even get close to remembering how I did it, lolz.

    I wouldn't describe this as "weird" but very functional.
    I use a flash drive with a very simple version of Linux that allows you to reset passwords on Windows machines.
    So if you get locked out or forget your password, this flash drive can reset it.
    I call it my Rescue Flash Drive.

    No way to do something like this in Windows alone. Linux always saves the day!

    The only hacking I can really do is through rootkits. I click it to ethernet, put it on PXE, ping it, spoof that I am a wake on lan server, reboot, burn the tool. It's like 2 Kb on the north bridge and I can easily remove it. Plus the northbridge is like a 2mb chip
