DIY Christmas Craft #10

Ahhhh, Christmas cards! I must start by saying THANK YOU to those of you who take the time to write and send out your warm wishes. Every year I think about sending out cards, but alas, the thought is soon forgotten! Either way, I would like to suggest this craft to show off the thoughtfulness of those who do write and send out cards.

You will need:
  • two yards of festive ribbon
  • five feet of wooden dowel (specifically, one piece at 8", 10", 12", 14" and 16")
  • hot glue gun
Start by folding your ribbon in half (the folded end will be the top and the loose ends will be the bottom). With a hot glue gun, sandwich the dowels between the ribbon. Start to glue the shortest dowel about 6" from the fold of the ribbon (the top). Continue to glue the remainder of the dowels about 5" apart from each other, making sure to glue them in increasing length sequence ei: 8", 10", 12", 14" then 16" (at the bottom). 

Hang your Christmas card holder to your door or a wall. As your receive cards, just clip them onto the dowels using binder clips or simply hold punch a corner of the card and secure a loop of ribbon to hang.

PS, I'm curious, when you were growing up, where did mom hang all the Christmas cards?

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
