During our time browsing the web, we find just buckets of interesting geek stuff, and not everything is totally applicable for an article here at How-To Geek… but we still want to share them with our friends. TinyHacker is how we’ll share those links.

Wait, Aren’t There 10,000 Link Sites Already?

Yep, that’s exactly right. There are zillions of sites out there, but TinyHacker is different:

  • TinyHacker gets right down to business: a simple preview screenshot, a tiny blurb, and a link. Nothing more.
  • TinyHacker is devoted to finding great, random geek links (and tips), without the BS everybody else has.
  • TinyHacker is run by the team at How-To Geek.

So… Head over to TinyHacker and make sure to subscribe.

Super User Continues to Rock

Seems like every time I head over to Super User, I find a really interesting thread on some random geeky topic.

Even better, a good majority of them have answers.

Last Year in Geek

One year ago, we were covering some awesome stuff—like this awesome game:

The Geek Note

Unfortunately, at some point recently one of our advertisers enabled a completely obnoxious, ridiculously useless and horrible survey that slides across the page, asking you to enter something or another about some subject you don’t care about. Most likely you didn’t even see it, but for those of you that did, we’re sorry.

We can assure you that we are extremely angry about this, and we’re working with the advertisers to make sure this gets pulled.

If you ever see a survey that floats across the page, you should immediately close it. Don’t reward those idiots by filling it out! If it shows up on How-To Geek at any point in the future, you should take a screenshot (use the print screen key, paste into Word or Paint), and then email it directly to me at geek@howtogeek.com.

And again, sorry. I don’t know why people insist on being idiots.

Lowell Heddings, better known online as the How-To Geek, spends all his free time bringing you fresh geekery on a daily basis. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    I think I would like the Tiny Hacker website. I wish it was available as an iGoogle item. I seem to take the time to check all of my favorite little things on iGoogle, but never seem to get around to going to the websites unless I already see an article linking to it. Yes, I’m lazy. But at least I’m honest.

    Getting angry with advertisers about the type of advertisements grants you a disabled ABP in my Firefox.

    I’ve been buying music (from mp3va) for over a year. Recently, though the tunes I pick are no longer downloading to my Windows Media Player library, but to somewhere on my D:drive. Wondering if any forum contributors have a solution. Am I missing some simple command to download to Music Match? Would appreciate any ideas.
