Our Geek has some great news to share but is too modest to tell you himself (seriously). If you've ever read Lifehacker.com, you know how a quality site is run. They have decided to make The Geek a 'Guest Editor', which is a regular gig. Of course nothing changes at HTG, he's been an irregular contributor there for quite some time, but this is a time for accolades.

Well done buddy, if I don't say so myself.

Congrats to The Geek! Whatever Lifehacker is paying you, they should double it now.

It's definitely a great opportunity for me personally, and for How-To Geek as a whole to get more recognition.

The good thing is that it doesn't really conflict with my normal HTG-style articles, since Lifehacker is mostly a quick tips blog and HTG is a full-feature massive screenshots super-friendly how-to site.

Congratulations. First time I saw a picture of the Geek. The wife said: He looks 'normal'. That's supposed to be a compliment. - LOL

@whs

I think a lot of people are surprised that I don't really look much like "the geek" =)

We had a good laugh. She said: I expected the Geek to look like his avatar since you (meaning me) look like your avatar.

matt - I seriously hope you don't look like yours!
I look like mine :)

Geek - I don't know what I thought you looked like, but it was neither your avatar OR you!

Very nice work sir .I've been wondering ,since they added the angel, if and when you would be an official part of Lifehacker ..
Seeing as how often your there or quoted there.
I have been reading both sites for a while now But cant remember which one was first.Both are part of my everyday regime....
Again I say good for you !

Congratulations HTG.
Its still a small compliment in comparision to enormous help HTG provides to number of users.
HTG's motto can be something like "Looking for a computer solution then look HTG".
