*Update* Servants Of Hope 2014

December 22, at 7pm, the Servants Of Hope held their 9th Annual Feeding the Homeless event at Pigeon Park (Vancouver). This was my first year attending, and while I didn't get as hands on as I had intended, the overall experience was just as rewarding. I managed to interact with some great volunteers, and took a few pictures, Have a look...

The beginning of the food line.
The food line extended to what looked like at least 4 blocks.
A sense of how crowded it was.
Same crowd, different angle.
Some great volunteers.
This is what the crowd looked like from the end of the food line.
Volunteers taking food out, to those unable to stand in line.
Clothing and blankets were being handed out of the budget van; this is as close as I could get.

In summary the event took hours of preparation time on the day of, and in the weeks leading up to. Within an hour and a half, almost all the food,clothing, and blankets had been distributed and the clean up process had begun, until next year. Amidst the free for all chaos and anarchy presented by offering free food to the needy, there was a semblance of peace, order and a sense of dignity in the way the Servants of Hope conduct their ritual. I want to thank them for what they do, and allowing me to be a participant.

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.
