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 www.mass-imo.com 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.

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
