Cafe D'Lite

About a week and a half ago I went Christmas shopping with a friend of mine to grab a few last minute items. We ended up on West Broadway, for those that aren't familiar with this area, Broadway is an East/West thorough fare in the city of Vancouver, and much of it's streets are lined with retail outlets, cafes, and restaurants. West Broadway in particular has an old mom and pop feel to it's retail outlets, specializing in unique harder to find items. After some successful purchases we decided to stop for lunch, as we looked around you could see all kinds of restaurants, yet we managed to happen upon this tiny little place called Cafe D'Lite. From the exterior this establishment wasn't doing itself any favors, and we almost walked by just on its appearance alone.
 Inside however it looked much more appealing, warm and inviting. It was however quite small, hosting a seating capacity of approximately 20 or so people. It specialized in Malaysian and Singapore cuisine, which I had never tried before, and after seeing the menu I was starting to have my doubts about our selection. I took the plunge and ordered a Curry Chicken Vegetable Rice dish for $9.50. Well when they brought the plate I was surprised to see how huge the portion was,  it could have probably fed 2 people. More surprising than the portion size was the taste, it was absolutely fantastic. The plate was deep almost bowl like, which allowed for the curry chicken and vegetables to sit in a broth of its own juices. The curry was somewhat mild, yet tasty and the vegetables still maintained a slightly crisp texture. Using the rice to soak up all the juices almost made it seem like eating two different meals. Overall after my initial skepticism, of trying a new food cuisine and the less than appealing store front, I must say my first Malaysian cuisine experience turned out to be a memorably enjoyable meal that I long to repeat soon. So if you're in the 604 area code and happened to be in the Kitsilano area check out Cafe D'Lite at 3144 West Broadway, Vancouver BC.

My only regret is not having taken any photo's of the interior decor or the actually dish I was served. I would have loved to have pictures of those to show here on my blog. Hopefully I'll remember next time, and maybe I'll get adventurous and try something different.

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
