What I Didn't Get For Christmas...But Wanted

Seeing as I've been good all year (wink wink), I was really hoping Santa Claus would bring me everything I wanted. Well I got all kinds of wonderful things, but I really do believe he missed the mark by not getting everything on my list. So just in case he reads my blog, here's a list of things that I really really want and didn't get.

Panerai Luminor 1950 10 Days GMT Ceramica
This 44mm Paneria is made out of a ceramic material which is resistant to corrosion and scratching. The screw down back is titanium, with a see through, smoked saphire window. Limited to 500 pieces with MSRP of $17,075.00 (CDN).


Louis Vuitton 4 Motion Sunglasses
These sunglasses are completely adjustable to create the perfect fit. Adjust the nose pad, frame height, front inclination, temple curvature, and even extend or shorten the temple area to create a more casual fit. The price for these (not that Santa cares about pricing) $750.00 (CDN).


The One by Fat Attack
It's a 110 HP custom made Harley Davidson made in Switzerland valued at about $146,000.00 (CDN)








Traxxas 'Ken Block's Ford Fiesta' RC
If you're not familiar with Ken Block then check out an earlier blog entry here. Well this is the Radio Controlled electric version of Ken Block's Ford Fiesta drift car. The complete ready to race package costs about $350.00 (CDN) 





I probably won't be making any posts until the new year, so I hope this keeps peoples interests until then. 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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
