*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.

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.

This Netgear Prosafe 16 Port Gigabit Switch was part of a Craigslist lot I purchased, containing a bunch of computer equipment.  Seeing as I had no need for this switch, at the time, it just sat in my office collecting dust. Once I started my structured media home wiring project I realized the 16 port Netgear could be quite useful, but after a few unsuccessful attempts at utilizing it I realized it was DOA. Here's the situation, when this switch is plugged in, an LED will signify the unit is on and working, however whenever an Ethernet cable is inserted into any of the available jacks, there is no LED activity or connectivity. I took to the world wide web and came across a few similar situations all of which indicated that my unit probably had a bad capacitor. To verify if this was indeed the culprit behind my non functioning switch I woul
