Savant

This time, I’d like to share the coolest stuffs from Norwegian producer Aleksander Vinter aka Savant. Savant has been previously producing under the aliases Vinter in Hollywood, Vinter in Vegas, Datakrash, Blanco, Megatron, Numa, The Protos and Twin World. To be honest I’m a great fan of Savant’s production style because I too believe that electronic music is something to be explored, not just limited by producing a particular genre. I agree, there would be personal interests and inspiration while producing, but you should explore more!.

His producing alias “Savant” comes from the rare syndrome of the same name, something that has gifted him with prodigious music productiion abilities and thus he produces stuff in FL Studio at an incredibly fast rate. As a fan, I’m eagerly waiting for his next album “Orakel” from SectionZ.

This week I would like to share some dope tracks from Australian electronic music producer Karl Thomas aka ShockOne.

Tip To Reset Ubuntu Password From GRUB Menu

Three reasons why Ubuntu displays “Dafuq dude!, you’ve entered Incorrect Username or Password”

Case 1: I have installed Ubuntu OS couple of months ago
Case 2: I just installed Ubuntu for fun with a random password (eww! who’s that by the way? )
Case 3: Whatever

OK guys, lets get into the topic;

1. Reboot your PC, hit Esc button and enter the GRUB Menu.

Ubuntu-grub-image

2. Select and enter “Drop to root shell prompt option” aside “root
(be safe, while playing with root account)

3. Assuming that you are using a higher Ubuntu version (12.0+), you may to enter the following command to get it to remount as read-write, which will allow you to make necessary security changes:

mount -o rw,remount /

Press enter

4. If you wish to change the user name, type this command:

ls /home
(it is small letter “L” not capital letter “i”)
Press Enter  

Now you can see the list of username(s). lets assume it is “john” and “anna” respectively

5. To reset John’s password, type:

passwd john

Press Enter

6. A command will be prompted to type your new password, just type the new password. (note: text will not be visible while typing), press enter when you are done; you will asked to re-type the password, proceed the same and hit Enter.

7. Now type “exit” without quotes in the command prompt and Press enter

8. You will be reverted to the Recovery menu

9. Select “resume normal boot” and Press Enter

That’s it. Your password has been reset.

Sorry guys. there are too many “Press Enter” in this post. It is because of the lack of screenshot.

It doesn’t mean I’m lazy, I’m just using some other OS. I will update this entry when I’m logged in Ubuntu.
