XBOX360 Kinect Part 1

I recently purchased the Kinect, motion control input device for my dust collecting XBOX360. I'm not much into console gaming any more, but since we've been having such miserable weather this year, I was willing to try anything, in the hopes of becoming more active. Now I actually enjoy using the Kinect and find myself using it far more than I had anticipated. The problem I'm finding, is that while the Kinect works well while I'm playing by myself, my entertainment room is too small to accommodate multiple players simultaneously. Well the people over at NYKO have come up with a rather clever solution for those of us who are spatially challenged. It's called Zoom Kinect, and it does exactly what it's name implies, it zooms in by using a set of lens that fit over the Kinect module. Once installed the lens work in the same manner as glasses, in that they readjust the field of vision allowing for much better motion detecting at closer distances. Unfortunately we're all going to have to wait until August 16, to get our hands on this gizmo, as well as heft out $29.99(US).

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
