I had bookmarked a post here on adding electrical outlets to a desk (it was and is still linked from Lifehacker), but it seems to have been taken down. I tried searching for it, but can't find it. Here's the old link:

Was this permanently removed, or was it renamed and I'm just not finding it? I was hoping to add some power outlets to my desk, and I remember this being one of the better tutorials I found.

I'm pretty sure it's gone, due to safety concerns from some readers.

Update: How-To Geek has just pulled their article for the time being, due to a lot of readers raising safety concerns. As always, these projects are at-your-own-risk, but they should be updating the article soon with a more friendly method. We'll update this post when it's available. Sorry for the inconvenience.
