How to hide any wire along a carpeted wall

Step 2: Pushing wire in

for actually putting in the wire, I found it was best to use a broken pencil. it worked better than a screwdriver or anything else I tried. first, you hold the wire on one side. then, you move away from the hand holding the wire, pushing the wire in with the pencil. you may have to go over it a few times. and try not to damage your house, this may not work.

not nice. I'm ruined now. I have to go live as a hermit in a hole in the ground that people regularly use as a toilet.
Don't worry about it...

To live as a hermit? In a hole that's used as a bathroom? You need help...lol

Altogether, a good, simple instructable. The pictures are original and they show what you're doing in each step. The bulk of the text explains what you're doing and why. Your lack of capitalization was distracting, though.

As PetervG already mentioned, the title is a bit off the mark. If you can rename an instructable, how about "How to hide a wire along a wall"?

Lastly, middle box == "WHAT? HOW? HUH?"

how'd you get to it?
Simple.... in Firefox, go to "View" and then "Page Style".... Then select "No Page Style" and you can read all the comment things... lol, took me a minute to figure out...
codongolev (author)  gamer5 years ago
hey... since you seem to know about page styles n' crap like that, have you ever had that thing happen to you where all the formatting and pictures disappear from a website (in firefox, of course) and it's just text?
Ummm.... No, sorry, I can't really help you, I have no clue what you are talking about, but.... Next time it happens, take a screenshot and send it to me, I might have more of a clue, and I might be able to help you... -gamer
codongolev (author)  gamer5 years ago

Ok, I've gotten that before... It is just basically, go to "View", then "Page Style" and click on "Basic Page Style" That should work... -Gamer
codongolev (author)  gamer5 years ago
thanks, I'll try.
codongolev (author)  codongolev5 years ago
hmm.... didn't work.
Does it do that for all pages?
codongolev (author)  Sir Maverick5 years ago
it stopped doing it a while ago.
ok
I can't really help you, I would suggest PM-ing Eric, or the Admin, to get help -gamer

Actually, I just read the source of the page. But that works, too. :-P

How did you read it? (Middle Box)
codongolev (author)  Flumpkins5 years ago
it's explained twice below.
I don't use firefox
codongolev (author)  Flumpkins5 years ago
the other guy said he read the source for the page.
What?!? I have no idea about computor terms.
codongolev (author)  Flumpkins5 years ago
it means the html stuff.

in internet explorer, it's "view" and then "source".

in firefox, the only difference is it says page source.

it' the stuff that's all like

<html>
<title>grandma</title>
<body>why is the title grandma? who knows. who cares.
<marquee><------<<</marquee>
that was a flying arrow.
</body>
</html>
I don't get it, drop the conversation.
codongolev (author)  Flumpkins5 years ago
it's internet language. some can read it, others can't. that's all you need to know.
codongolev (author)  wyrm5 years ago
happy now?
