COV Senior Management, Should Not Wear Pink

While the rest of the city, province and nation prepares to advocate for anti bullying, it would seem Vancouver city staff will proudly continue to wear pink, without knowing what it means. It wasn't that long ago, perhaps two years ago now, when  I, as the President of Hastings community centre, was bullied by Vancouver's Parks Board senior management demanding I sign over all assets owned by the non-profit, registered charity, made up of local community members. An community association that had spent the last 80 years working alongside the city of Vancouver to provide affordable programming and service to residents of the Hastings-Sunrise community. If we, the association,  refused to cooperate in handing over all our assets we would be evicted and then sued. Parks Board senior management, taking orders from the city manager, have wasted countless taxpayers dollars in their efforts to fleece various communities out of their well earned assets. Thankfully a judge quickly put an end to this bullying tactic of divide and conquer, but that has only seemed to slow down city of Vancouver staff. More recently the city of Vancouver staff turned their attention towards a former Parks Board manager, who, coincidentally was hired as a consultant by the very same association who were embroiled in a legal assets battle with the city. This former civic employee, turned consultant, was allegedly accused of inappropriate conduct. Taking it upon themselves senior management at the city of Vancouver managed to botch up the investigation, lose video evidence and then pronounce themselves judge, jury and executioner over this individuals fate. How convenient that the main consultant leading the legal battle against the city, was now, if you believe the city, involved in some scandal. In my opinion it seems like the city was tired of losing their case against the association in court, and began fabricating stories to harass and bully those assisting the associations.
It unfortunate their aren't more coming forward to wear pink and protest against the city of Vancouver's bullying of the community centre associations.

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.
