Prest-O Change-O Ceiling Fan

The other day I went to help a friend of mine shop for a new ceiling fan. I mentioned this cool retractable blade design I had seen on the web, well lets just say my explanation would have been better with pictures. So I decided to make a post in case anyone else was interested.
For those of you who have high ceilings, and rarely even see your fan blades when you look up, then I doubt you would care about this product. However the rest of us, with low ceiling fans, are constantly staring at those stationary blades most of the year. Well Hunter Fan has designed a ceiling fan called the Fanless that has retractable blades, so when not in use they fold in and are hidden from sight.

Of course your going to pay a bit of a premium for this design, the 48" model has a MSRP of $559(US) which, can be found using their website, click here if interested.

Here are a few pictures and a video


  1. The only thing that I don't like about this product is the fact the blades are clear. When they get dusty they must be disgusting to look at!

Project: Motorola DCT3416

My brothers Motorola DCT3416 died, and I figured I would attempt to fix it. I want to start out by saying I know very little about PVR's, other than somewhere buried inside is a standard computer hard drive. While dropping off the DCT3416, my brother informs me that it doesn't turn on, and that it makes this clicking noise. My first assumption is that the HD is corrupt and or damaged and preventing the machine from booting. Replacing the internal HD should produce a simple fix, so lets go about doing just that. Replacing the internal HD is going to be slightly more complicated than originally anticipated as the rear of the DCT3416 has 3 tamper proof/security screws, which I do not have a tool for. Instead I used a series of pliers, and 10 minutes later had all the screws removed. Here is what the tamper proof/security screws look like, once removed.   I should add that there is also a plastic security tab, just above the IEEE 1394 jacks, which disintegrated when I attempted to

Project: Netgear GS116

Truth be told, this repair was done quite some time ago and is actually part of my structured media home wiring project, which is still ongoing. This Netgear Prosafe 16 Port Gigabit Switch was part of a Craigslist lot I purchased, containing a bunch of computer equipment.  Seeing as I had no need for this switch, at the time, it just sat in my office collecting dust. 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
