The Overpasses Of Surrey (BC)

As a resident of Surrey, I am little flustered by all the negativity highlighted by news broadcasters for the last little while. Yes I know, there is a whole lot of gang and drug related crap going on, as well as just random acts of violence. To give you an idea, from December 24, 2011 to February 5, 2012 (31 days), there have been 8 shootings, 4 of which were fatalities. I'm frustrated because all I hear from people is, Surrey is bad this and Surrey is bad that. Do I need to remind you that this sort of stuff goes on in other cities all the time? Cities like Vancouver, but the thing is that Vancouver is old news.


Even though bad stuff happens in Surrey, good stuff happens too. I would like to start off by giving kudos to our Mayor, Dianne Watts. In the four years I have lived here, I have seen a lot of positive change and I hope with the support of the community, Dianne get to continue achieving her goals for years to come. One of her goals is to link the city without the use of roadways. Last year, Dianne, with help from her team, developed and constructed two cycling and pedestrian overpasses in Surrey. They are not just functional but beautiful too.


The Pioneer Overpass connects the Pioneer Greenway on 148 Street/Winter Crescent through a neigbhourhood park on the west side of Hwy 99 to 35 Avenue on the east side.


The Tynehead Cycling and Pedestrian Overpass connects Tynehead Regional Park with Fraser Heights crossing over Hwy 1 to 168 street. It connects to the Tynehead Greenway and in the future will connect to the Barnston Greenway.

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.
