How to Store Your Christmas Lights

If you are like most people, every year when you put up your Christmas tree, you probably get a little flustered when you have to untangle your strands of light. Next years doesn't have to have the same faith. So, this year, save yourself the agony and wrap those strands nicely. Here are a couple of suggestions:

  • Cut slits into the end of an empty wrapping paper tube.Thread one end of your light strand into the slit, wrap the rest of the lights around the tube, then thread the other end of the lights through the opposite slit in the tube.
  • Use the same idea as above, but simply use a square piece of cardboard.
  • Wrap each individual set in a plastic bag and store the bags together.
  • Roll each strand up as if it were an extension cord and use twist-ties to secure it together.
Here is a video on yet another option:

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.
