Life isn’t just about how-to articles, interesting downloads, and Friday Fun. The new How-To Geek ETC section is here to bring you everything else—geeky news items and random links that we’ve found while browsing the interwebs.
The more faithful readers will probably have already noticed that this section has been around for a few weeks now—we’re just getting around to announcing it officially, and giving you a way to subscribe for updates.
Why How-To Geek ETC?
We spend so much time browsing around and looking through geeky sites online that we always have a ton of extra links that don’t really fit with our main focus (which is how-to articles, if you hadn’t guessed), and we wanted to find a good way to share these with you. Rather than overload your RSS with loads of extra posts, we figured we’d create a separate section, with a separate feed.
You can access the ETC section anytime from the new ETC tab, and some of the posts will also be shown on the front page of the site as well, but not all of them. If you’re just browsing around, make sure you visit the ETC section for the latest random stuff.

Totally Random Geeky Links
Sometimes we find stuff that’s just random and interesting…
We’re always on the lookout for interesting wallpaper for our roundup posts. Here’s some interesting ones that didn’t fit into a category.
If you want to customize your desktop, we’ll be finding interesting themes, skins, and more.
Interesting Geek News
We’re not going to cover everything in the news, there’s just too much, and it’s mostly boring. We try to find interesting stuff you might not have seen yet.
How-To Articles from Other Sites
It’s sometimes hard to believe, but there are actually other how-to sites out there. Every so often we might point out something interesting we’ve found.
Random Geeky Real-Life Stuff
I’m not sure what “real life” actually means.
Fun Gaming Stuff
It doesn’t get geekier than retro gaming.
