Pie and Cake Maker

The hardest part of making pie is the long process. You have to make the dough, roll it out, line the pie plate, fill it and then top off the pie with more dough until it can get into the oven. Then, you probably have to wait about an hour before it comes out of the oven, tack on another 15 minutes before you can attempt to eat it without scalding your tongue. Sounds like a whole lot of work for such little reward!

So how about this, if all you want is a slice of pie, why not make a small individual pie? I came across the Pie and Cake Maker from Emeril Lagasse, the BAM man himself and thought it was kinda cool. Yes, I know, you still have to make the dough, but then again, you can always buy it pre-made! With this little machine you can bake off 4 individual pies in about 10 minutes. That sure beats waiting over an hour for just slice.

Best of all, this machine is not just for pies, you can use it for almost anything. You could make cupcakes, honkin' brownies (OMG those would be so good!), muffins, quiche, bread rolls, and I am sure you can even use it for mini pancakes too.

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
