Wonder How To Website: How To Hack Video Clips

One of the neatest things on the Web is the plethora of "how-to" videos that tell you how to do practically anything. Problem is, the videos are everywhere: YouTube, metacafe, and so on.

Enter Wonder How To, a website that did for DIY video guides what Yahoo! did for the early Internet: it categorizes thousands of free how-to videos from over 1,700 websites into 35 categories (from arts & crafts to disaster preparation, magic & parlor tricks to pranks & cons).

I'm currently browsing the How to Hack section, which has over 600 videos on how to hack your gadgets, computers, and even video game consoles. Many of the videos are duds - which is why Wonder How To lets its viewers sort the clips by grade (from A to F).

I've worked on elevators for over 30 years. The elevator hack is bunk. If it honestly seemed to work, it was a coincidence. Door and car call controls are separate from hall calls. There are key switches that can put the car on express. In that mode, you must press and hold the door and/or call button.

On the site for the Elevator/Lift hack someone said they'd tried it twice and it worked a treat.

This would have been so useful when I worked at the 11th floor.

I will have to try this some time.

It is quite like the old safe hack, where a lot of people never re set the factory default safe combination.

I'm skeptical of the elevator hack, but will have to try that later this afternoon...that would be awesome if it works! A similar site that produces most of their own high-quality videos is MonkeySee.com. They have close to 10K (according to their site) how to videos, so it's definitely another good resource.
