Le Tour De France

As the days grow shorter and the clouds invade the friendly skies of the Pacific Northwest, we know it won't be long now until the rains come. And when the rains come, they generally tend to stay longer than wanted, making outdoor activities quite a challenge. Well one company aiming to change how we participate in indoor activities is Pro-Form. They've designed an indoor stationary bike that has become the ultimate Tour De France training cycle. What's so special about this exercise equipment is the iFit Live technology that uses Google Maps to recreate actual cycling routes. 
Combine this advanced technology with a stationary bike that actually tilts recreating the feeling of ascending and descending elevated terrains as you would on a real bicycle.
Now wouldn't it be cool if this thing also added wind resistance, well it does, by creating a profile based on the riders height and weight, it knows how much resistance to add to recreate wind drag. With a price tag of about $1,200(US) this isn't much more expensive than other models, considering how Hi-Tech this it. If you want more information click this link to go to the products website.

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.
