Hello and welcome to another edition of Friday Open thread, where you ask your most burning tech, DIY, and hacking-related questions, and the Lifehacker hive-mind does its best to compute an answer for you.
I'm your host, BrokeinMileEnd, back after a prolonged absence from the content trenches, and typing this during a lunch break at my newish – sigh –
call centre tech support job. (I'm just gathering material for an update to this guide, I swear.)
As always, this portion of your Lifehacker TGIF programming is brought to you by Hackerspace. Hackerspace: the same Gawker Media editorial rigor you've come to expect, with none of the oversight (or overhead). Do you want to play with us? Ask how, in the comments below.
