Facebook Update

Here's a little update on the recent Facebook saga.
For those who haven't been following, let me bring you up to speed. Towards the end of 2011, Facebook decide to start censoring syndication of Mass-IMO to the Mass-IMO Facebook page. Why? I'm not sure, Facebook has yet to respond. I was curious as to why myself, so I went about trying to find some answers. Based on what I discovered through various forums, I was being banned for excessive spamming. Now just for the record, I do not send my blog posts to anyone, unless you're a friend whom I think would enjoy a specific article. I do that as a friend, not the Owner of a blog. My blog is syndicated to Email/Facebook/Twitter (hopefully soon Google+), so that those interested in Mass-IMO content can sign up with any of these services to receive said content. I do not control who signs up, or how they sign up. 
After numerous hours of trying to establish why I was being banned, and numerous more hours trying to resolve the banning issues, I had given up. 
You see, I only have 33 people signed up to receive content through Facebook, and though I deeply value all their support, considering the 300+ people a day that visit my blog, on a good day Facebook makes up 11%.  So with that, I posted the following message on my Facebook Page...
"So it looks like Mass-IMO is banned from Facebook, which makes no sense. From what I've gathered someone must have accused this page of spamming. Considering there are only 33 people registered I don't see how, but until Facebook decides to change this, there will be no updates here, because each time I try to post an update it gets blocked.
Rather than spend my time trying to resolve this, I'm going to be working on getting my Google+ page set up. I've already spent numerous hours trying to get this page working, and I'm fed up."
Well I'm glad to say, that 2 hours after my Facebook Page message, the ban was miraculously lifted.
Now I'm thankful that Facebook has removed the ban, but I'm curious as to why I was banned in the first place. I still believe I should have at least been given a warning, had I even done something wrong.

Well whatever the situation was, it's now resolved, and we can go back to what we were doing.

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

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.
