The Raspberry Pi loads an operating system from whatever SD card you insert, allowing a hacker to keep different operating systems on separate SD cards depending on which OS you wish to run. A tool called BerryBoot cuts down on the number of SD cards needed by providing the ability to boot multiple operating systems from a single SD card, similar to Bootcamp for Mac OS X. With BerryBoot, a single 32 GB SD card can hold multiple penetration testing tools and distros.

The evidence is mounting and is becoming indisputable: Gut bacteria play a role in strokes and heart attacks. The link may seem a little far-fetched, but cardiovascular disease may have less to do with what we eat and more to do with what chemicals gut bacteria make from the food we eat.
There are so many tips and tricks on how to improve your Instagram photos, but one really easy way is to use HDR.
