The end of the year is nigh, with 2013 soon to make way for 2014. Like most people, you probably enjoyed some highs and endured some lows over the past 12 months, but you lived through them all, racking up experiences both good and bad.

One thing we hope played a small part in your enjoyment of 2013 is MakeUseOf, the ever-present repository of geeky goodness you’re reading right now. We know our place, and we know we’re not the most important thing in your life, but we try to educate and entertain each and every day of the year.

But what, we wonder, was your highlight of MakeUseOf in 2013…

      I also like the article with the picture of buff people in their underwear. ;)

    The first thing that comes to my mind was the February 2013 article on Configuring XBMC. The subject matter has a somewhat narrow range of interest compared to a broadly appealing article about a new Windows or iOS version, but I felt that it had a great mix of information for both new and long-time users of the product that was presented with the right level of depth for the subject matter. The MUO article on the topic is incredibly handy because it's often difficult to find up to date, concise, well written materials for modestly complex free software projects. New users often wind up having to wade through blogs and forum posts to find out that sort of information and I think a lot of new users should be glad that someone else did it for them.

    I'm sorry but I can't recommend one article there were so many that I enjoyed. I will say that Cool Websites & Tools is my favorite for learning what websites are out there. Mark O'Neill does a great job informing me.
