DIY with Instructables

Tired of Lifehacker? Is the DIY Network not your idea of fun? I found a fun new website, Instructables, a site with step-by-step instructions for do-it-yourself projects. Imagine using Legos to create a USB charger or to encase your USB memory stick. You can also find instructions for cracking and hacking windows passwords, extending the range of your car remote, and how to open a bottle of beer without an opener.

Instructables has 8 categories: art, craft, food, home, life, not liable, ride, and tech. You can also browse the site using one of the many keywords. If that isn't enough, Instructables has an active Forum where you can exchange ideas and get help with the tricky parts of your project.

Have fun. I know I like the car remote extender.
