Ad: Victoria, British Columbia

Check out this ad campaign for the city of Victoria, British Columbia...
To inspire Canadians from the inland city of Calgary, Alberta to visit the island city of Victoria, BC, we reminded them about what we have that they don’t… the ocean. We created humourous stories around three ocean creatures that are on the lam from Victoria, BC: Orland the orca, Sol the harbour seal and Simon the salmon. Stories lived online at www.tourismvictoria.com/calgaryand were pushed out through press releases and social media channels. Then we plastered Calgary with wanted posters, took out full page ads in the newspapers and put the call out on radio stations to spread our message; Tourism Victoria is looking for these creatures and we will reward consumers who find them with a chance to win a West Coast adventure trip for four to Victoria, BC. Our three creatures have been brought to life in the form of massive, impossible-to-miss 5 foot by 5 foot sidewalk sculptures and placed them around Calgary for consumers to find. Calgarians who spot one are encouraged to help spread the word by posting a picture on Tourism Victoria’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/tourismvictoriafan) and we also set up a Twitter hash tag (#VicSeaPals) to help track their whereabouts until they are home safe. The campaign has just begun, but already we have over a thousand entries into the contest and the buzz on the street is its own reward!"

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

Longboarding With Team Original

Love this video, makes longboarding look like so much fun. Do they rent longboards? Are there areas to longboard here in BC? Gonna have to find out and finally give this sport a try. Until then I'll have to keep watching this video... Via - LikeCool By: Mass

Blogger Has Died

Dear friends, fans, and followers. For the past few months my blog has been overrun with errors, making changes very difficult (if not impossible). On numerous occasions I've attempted to reset my blogger template, install a new templates, and even restore from an older version but I'm still unable to add or remove specific content from my blogs template. The initial problematic area was the blog post section which refuses to accept any changes or alterations to the date, author, title or social media links. I have suffered through this problem, but as of late it appears that the layout is now no longer accepting changes, and when displayed is no longer centered. If anyone has suggestions on how to fix these blogger issues, please email me. As a result, I will no longer be updating, as its too difficult maintain this blog.
