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: 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.
