The Worst Week

This is not a good week for me. Too many worrying problem just suddenly pop up in front of me these few days. I wasn’t able to get my PC working after the Corsair memory ram came back with countless crashing even after reformatting which is why I wasn’t able to post. I have no idea what get into my PC lately. Corsair RMA sent me the same XMS2 DHX 2GB twin stick and it doesn’t work properly. Almost doing anything on my PC hangs up within a minute and had to force restart. It takes time testing every each hardware especially the hard disk drive is the longest. The test results were all positive even the new memory ram. The only left is the motherboard. If that was the problem, I am truly doomed without any PC. But after applying the latest BIOS update, I didn’t see any crashing until now. Is it the motherboard fault? It doesn’t necessary if I already using the same memory ram for more than two years unless that was a different chip or some sort. These worry me a lot so I decided to dro…

iShop2Go.com Online Free Magazine

I just spotted the link last weeks and entirely forget to post this up. iShop2go.com got a new section up recently call Toyazine. The page was done in online magazines like and currently the 1st issue features some review on toys and the winner of their Gunpla competition held last month. Check it out!

July Weekend #1

Can’t believe the spray paint runs out last minute when working on AEU Enact custom. Even my work on Gundam O was stuck at the same time. Arggg…hate to see this kind of problem happen all the time. Put it aside, recently I made a pre-order for upcoming this month Dengeki Hobby for August (bundle with RG MS Hanger Base) and Figma Black Rock shooter before the Hobby Search promotion end on few hours. Feel a bit regrets getting Figma toy to be honest.
Originally the order was suppose to be Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby. It just too bad Hobby Japan reservation closed so fast from what I believe because of special Black Rock Shooter DVD bundle. Anyhow, luckily manage to reserve the Dengeki for this month.

HM Birthday Day on Gunpla Works

Just another boring day for me, I was supposed to work on side business fixing the laptop. Somehow the hard disk drive dies on me and has to send for warranty. My friend couldn’t replace immediately because of out of stock issue. Now, things were totally knock on the side the whole morning. After spending few minute thinking, I decided go ahead continuing my work on Gunpla started last two weeks.
The current project model is HG 1/144 Gundam O (Type A.C.D) and at the same time, HG 1/144 AEU Enact Custom (Ali Al-Saachez's). Both of them were half done because I applied epoxy putty which requires six hours fully dry and also waiting for restock on the plastic option parts. It’s on the way now from Japan, just order few days ago from Hobby Search during the promotion. Hopefully by next weeks, I can get it. Here is the tease photo of my current idea work.

Gundam O modification is progressing well at the moment, but still figuring out if the left over FG Rasiel parts allow me to squee…

Personal Data Loss

That was fucking unbelievable the Ubuntu are capable of corrupting NTFS partition that bad. Almost 95% of my personal data are entirely gone! I used plenty of powerful recovery software and still no luck getting them back as only 5% of some anime and music are able to retrieve. It really sucks sudden losing all your data like that after reconnecting back and loaded under Linux.
Well, the blame still goes to me not getting another external drive to backup all the stuffs. Losing anime and music weren’t that serious, just sad because of so many years of collections are all there. Photos are okay because I already did a backup two years ago on both DVD and in one of my hard disk. The only heartbroken for whole life is all my graphic design works are disappear. Even though I don’t work much on Photoshop these days, those are my passion works. I lose once way back on 2000 and now again on 2010. Hai~!
Damn this, I really can’t wait to need to deploy my NAS server. I’m in low cash and things ar…

Temporary Linux

Probably more, damn my Corsair memory ram got problem after I ran a test yesterday using Memtest. I already notice some shits going on from the beginning of the year. It just that I decided to ignore it until it gets often serious restarts or crash. It’s funny that it didn’t happen once when I was on gaming. Luckily it got a lifetime warranty so the only thing I needed to do is send it back to US for RMA. It was the farthest country I ever send for warranty. Meh, next time I swear I won’t buy from Corsair products anymore in the future unless they open a center in Asia for easier RMA.Now, the big problem starts. I’m in low cash and no spare memory to hold Vista memory tortures. Losing 4GB memory is a big issue for me, which means shutting down my PC was a best option rather using a slow ass PC. But the shitty things about me couldn’t live without internet and reading world news. That’s going to annoy me a lot. Without much second thought, I borrow 512MB DDR2 and 160GB SATA HDD to setu…

BuyInCoins Online Shop Review!

We have been seeing lots of China made electrical products selling in Brunei today especially the computer parts and accessories. As an IT technician, I require to prepare tools and tester to support my work even for personal side business. However, the problems are our local computer shops have been selling quite a high price and even some in ridiculous price that are unknown brands with less than one month warranty. If they selling reasonable price, probably I won’t need to go through looking direct China wholesale. Yes, this even might damage local business if every one of us turns to direct China online shop to get it. But I couldn’t help posting the website here.Right now, there are three shops I discover so far that allow you to buy one item each rather than require in bulks rule. But I decided to choose the best one that offer best price compares to others and that is Buyincoins.com (HQ in Hong Kong).First ImpressionsThe website is nicely done, clean, easy to use and fast loadi…
