DIY Christmas Craft #19

Check out these funky looking decorations! They're very easy to make, all you need is paper, scissors, tape, a needle and thread. You can use just about any type of paper, whether it be white paper, colored paper, old magazine pages, or even christmas paper. The key is to use a light weight paper to make these funnel type shapes, so don't think about using card stock or you'll go nuts in seconds!

The first step is to cut out ten paper circles, making sure they are all the same size for each decoration you make. So go ahead and make some really big ones and some tiny ones too. Once your circles are cut out, cut each one along the radius. Place a small piece of double-sided tape on the edge of both cut side. Flip the circle over and start rollin'.

Roll each flap towards you, creating two cone like shapes. Press down the taped edges to secure the cone into shape. Once you have shaped all ten paper circles into cones, grab your needle and thread and string your cones together. Gather the cones tightly to create a ball and knot the ends together, leaving enough thread to create a loop for hanging.

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.
