The global ABSOLUT Blank campaign offers artists a blank canvas in the shape of an ABSOLUT bottle to express and show their creativity. Around Christmas and New Year, the vodka brand wanted to implement this campaign with a very special execution. The solution was in the timing. Perfect for the darkest time of year, a light installation was created from 197 4.5 Litre ABSOLUT bottles and installed on a mega poster.

Replacing the conventional posters that hung there, this eye-catching light installation captivated and stunned over 250,000 passers-by a day on Berlin’s Alexanderplatz, brightening up the longest night of the year.

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
