HCC Facility Renewal Open House

Not sure how many people know this, but besides my jobs, and this site, I also volunteer my time at the Hastings Community Association, which assists the Vancouver Parks Board in running the Hastings Community Centre. I've been volunteering my time for over 15 years now, at various Community Centre locations on the East Side of Vancouver. So why am I telling everyone about this? Well because Hastings has been nominated for renewal by the City Of Vancouver, in it's next capital plan, and I've been selected to sit on the building committee for this project (my third capital plan project). Based on a number of variables, the building committee has come up with a design that they would like to put forward for consideration. However before we can go forward with this design, we need people to review the design and give their feedback. 

This is where all readers can help, by commenting on the proposed designs, or by attending the Hastings renewal open house. 

All the detail about the upcoming open house can be found below, with drawings.

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

Longboarding With Team Original

Duct Tape...It's Not Just For MacGyver Anymore

I came across this crazy site the other day called Duct Tape Fashion , which specializes in duct tape. Wait... I don't think I explained myself properly, there's a website dedicated to duct tape, and all things duct tape related. Ok, so maybe I did explain myself properly, WTF...really, duct tape. Well it seems duct tape isn't just for HVAC specialists and MacGyver anymore, it seems people are using duct tape to create all kinda of weird items like wallets, baseball caps, hats, bags, bracelets, purses, visors, and roses. Don't believe me, well check out some of these pics I got... Wallets Baseball Cap Hats Bags Bracelets Purses Visors Roses By: Mass
