Good morning, Hackateers! Welcome to another weekly installment of the open thread, brought to you by the wonderful place called Lifehacker.

How is the first week without Alan going? Everyone hanging in there?

This week on Hackerspace, we had a couple articles to mention:

ECB shared with us how he covered up a yard blight.

Moon shared with us some manipulations we can with Windows 7 registry keys.

So, let’s talk about things. And stuff. And some junk. Below in the comments.
