The MARCH LA.B SHELBY Limited Edition celebrates one of the rarest Shelby automobile prototypes of all time: the Shelby EXP 500 known as the "Green Hornet". Los Angeles, California October 6, 2010 -- The exclusive Shelby Limited Edition timepiece reflects on Shelby's heritage of pure performance and racing aesthetics.Encased in a black chassis set against a wood dial replicating the original dash of the automobile, the Shelby Limited Edition Watch transports you back to the glory days of the late sixties.Produced in 1968 by the legendary American automotive designer and race driver Carroll Shelby, the Mustang hardtop double prototype is an icon for car enthusiasts worldwide.The notchback Shelby became known as the EXP 500 Green Hornet, outfitted with a '68 Shelby custom hood, groundbreaking independent suspensions and powered by a 428 CJ "X" engine with Fuel Injection. Custom painter Sonny Fee applied three coats of Gold Luster Green lacquer with gold metallic mica over the original topcoat. Emblems and custom white/gold EXP500 stripes identified the car as a true Shelby prototype. This car is now an integral part of American heritage. Carroll Shelby has not only won the most prestigious race as a driver, the 24 hours of Le Mans, but he has also built what many consider the greatest sport car of all time: The aluminum-bodied 289 and 427 Cobra models. His subsequent work with Ford, building the legendary Shelby Mustang, has made him one of the most recognizable names in automobile history. 200 pieces of the MARCH LA.B Shelby Limited Edition Watch will be available November 10, 2010 at retailers worldwide.

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
