Sometimes do-it-yourselfers need a little inspiration. Here are several techno-geeky sites that I like to visit, “to get my DIY mind right”.
All of these sites have pretty high traffic numbers and are updated regularly. Hacked Gadgets is my favorite, because stories featured there are almost always done by fellow DIYers in their home shops. Slashdot is another one I check daily. The stories are always current and usually way out there.
