Hello again! Welcome to the always-recurring Friday open thread, where Lifehacker commenters can ask questions, share tips, or talk foolishly among themselves about anything.
The Friday thread serves as a sort-of open house for Hackerspace, Lifehacker's community-run sister blog. If you want to play with us (as in getting to write your own Hackerspace posts, like the one you are reading right now), read this first. Participate for a while, whether here or elsewhere in the Kinjaverse, to get a sense of this place. Then, ask for your posting privileges.
Feel free to ask me any direct questions as well. I check back every couple of hours or so.
