Whiskey On The Rocks

When I first started indulging in the consumption of spirits, my drink of choice was 'Crown and Coke'. Now that I'm much older, and questionably more sophisticated, I've dispensed with the formality of diluting my whiskeys with carbonated sugar water. In fact, I tend to drink my whiskey neet nowadays, however I've always preferred having my whiskey chilled. My remedy has always been to keep whiskey in the freezer, allowing it time to breathe before drinking, so as to regain its full flavours. Well an even better approach would be to use Whiskey Stones or Whiskey Stone Shot Glasses, both of which are made from metamorphic rock, known as soapstone. Because of it's great ability to dissipate heat, soapstone offers a better solution to chilling drinks over ice cubes which tend to dilute drinks as they melt. A set of 9 Whiskey Stone cubes will set you back about $19.99(US), while the Whiskey Stone Shot Glasses will cost $39.99(US) for a set of four.

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
