It's a rainy Saturday morning, the first in what seems like forever by Vancouver standards. The rain brings with it a subtle realization that Fall and Winter are quickly approaching. With our days growing shorter I realized it was time to write about this exciting new product from Cyglo. The Night Bright Tyre, tire for those of us in North America, is a revolutionary concept of adding LED lights to a bicycle tire. As an avid recreational cyclist myself, I can't help but think how much safer cycling would be with this product. The Night Bright Tyre's are powered by the perpetual circular motion of riding, so no more stopping to turn on and off your lights or worrying about dead batteries.

Now for years I've seen the same concept applied to inline skates, scooters, and luggage so I say bravo to James Tristram for bringing this to the cycling world. Unfortunately there is no word when we'll be able to order these, but you can get updates via twitter (@CygloTyre) or email.

Once I started my structured media home wiring project I realized the 16 port Netgear could be quite useful, but after a few unsuccessful attempts at utilizing it I realized it was DOA. Here's the situation, when this switch is plugged in, an LED will signify the unit is on and working, however whenever an Ethernet cable is inserted into any of the available jacks, there is no LED activity or connectivity. I took to the world wide web and came across a few similar situations all of which indicated that my unit probably had a bad capacitor. To verify if this was indeed the culprit behind my non functioning switch I woul
