Wiki How makes complicated simpler

Yesterday I forgot to add a post I have been meaning to put up for a while now about wikihow.com. wikiHow is a collaborative writing project to build the world's largest, highest quality how-to manual. With your contributions, they have created a free resource that helps millions of people by offering solutions to the problems of everyday life. wikiHow currently contains 57,940 articles — written, edited, and maintained primarily by volunteers.

It has instructions on anything from how to install a car-stero through to applying for professional positions correctly but I personally find it of great use with specific software packages and how to do some great little tricks in seconds like yesterdays lesson about converting PowerPoint to a screen saver for your OS. Next time you get stuck or you don't know where to start hit wikihow for advice and contribute to others advice if you have been there and done it before. Check it out here.
