You’ve seen the movie Hackers right? Yes, I know its dumb. Yes, I know its fake as hell. …and yes, I, for some reason, love that movie too. Anyway. Remember towards the end of that movie where they are “hacking the Gibson” and they all boot up their chunky little laptops? Each of them has a cool little video / movie / animation that plays when they boot their computer, before they get to their desktop. I want that. Don’t you think that would be cool? Sure it might be annoying everyonce in a while when you just want your laptop to boot up quickly so you can get something done, but all those other times…it would be awesome!
So how do we get that to happen? That I don’t know. Apple does this when you first install Tiger or get a new Mac, they play that little “welcome” video. So I did a little digging. I found where the movie is stored that plays on initial setup, and I found out that deleting a certain XML file will cause the system to go through the setup again…but thats as far as I’ve gotten.
Does anyone have more suggestions on how to get this hack done? Does anyone really even care if this hack gets done?
