Servants Of Hope: Feeding The Homeless 2015

What an amazing accomplishment, 10 years of giving back. It all started when a couple of friends decided to hand out chocolates and pop at Pigeon Park during the holiday season. Over the last 10 years this simple gesture has evolved into an event that brings the community together in a way that not only fills bellies, but also fills hearts. 

In order to truly understand the magnitude of this event, it needs to be witnessed firsthand. I had the opportunity to attend in 2014 and can honestly say that I was overwhelmed by the experience. 

While many of us are carried away with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it’s reassuring to know groups like the Servants of Hope make time in their day to include those who are struggling with homelessness and addiction in the Downtown Eastside.

If you have never experience an event like this one, I urge you to add one more gift to your holiday list and donate your time to make the 2015 holiday season a memorable one for the bellies and hearts you will help to fill.

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.
