Enable Apache Rewrite Module on Linux

I use Linux Mint 10 “Julia”. After I installed apache, rewrite module was disabled by default. We need to do some configuration to enable it. It’s easy 🙂

Here I describe the steps to enable rewrite module (mod_rewrite)

Move to apache folder. Type :

cd /etc/apache2

Enable mod_rewrite. Type :

sudo cp mods-available/rewrite.load mods-enabled/

Then edit overriding configuration on /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.

We can edit it with editor like nano or gedit, suit your self . If you choose nano editor, you could do it by type :

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default

Find the following :

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

and change it to :

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride all
Order allow,deny
allow from all

Finally, restart  your Apache by type

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Restore Windows 7 MBR after GRUB

I used dual boot on my computer. The first one is for Windows 7 and the other is Linux. But then I removed Linux from my computer for some reasons. Even though I installed Linux again in my computer. There was a problem in booting of my computer. It wasn’t able to boot on Windows, although there is still Windows 7 OS on it. It was because the grub loader was in my Linux, but then I removed it. Of course it wouldn’t boot :-p

So I have to fix the grub loader. It is easy to do it. Follow this step:

  1. Insert your Windows 7 DVD to your computer
  2. Restart your computer
  3. Boot to your DVD Drive
  4. There will be Windows 7 installation menu. Choose “Repair your computer”
  5. Select the operating system that you want to repair and then click “Next”
  6. Open Command Prompt by clicking Command Prompt option
  7. Type “bootrec.exe/fixboot” and press Enter
  8. Type “bootrec.exe/fixmbr” and press Enter
  9. Close the Command Prompt
  10. Restart

Done! You will have your Windows 7 Booting normal again..

Copy And Paste Image Directly to Gmail

We usually don’t add images on our email. Maybe because we don’t really need to do it or because we’re too lazy :-p

But, in gmail, there is a simple way to add images on our email. Yet, it is only can be done by using Google Chrome.

It’s simple as you copy and paste images on document.

Here it’s to do it:

Browse the images that you want to send.

Right click in the image, choose copy image. And then paste it to your composed email.

See, it’s easy 🙂

Google Chrome 10 Release

Speedier, Simpler, and Safer..

Just three weeks ago, we kicked off the Year of the Rabbit with a speedy Chrome beta. Today, we’re excited to bring these speed improvements and more to everyone using Chrome. With today’s stable release, even your most complex web apps will run more quickly and responsively in the browser. (For the curious, this boost corresponds to a 66% improvement in JavaScript performance on the V8 benchmark suite.)


For me, the most interesting thing that chrome has developed is the setting interface. You could easily find what you want to set just by type the keyword in  the search box in the option menu. And it just like you browse the website, it means that you could go to specific setting menu by type the url in the browser. Simple! 🙂
