GN-X Gladius Full Saber

This is GN-X Gladius Full Saber model kit submission I built last month for the upcoming EA CON Gunpla competition open category next week. To be honest, I don’t really much like the final result I worked on. There is still more room to improved of this kit but due to my lack of time, I have to finished before submitting. Never mind, I entered the competition just for fun since this is the first time organize in Brunei.
The Work
Nearly four days just to spend on assemble and review the final mixing including adding details before proceeding to the next steps. Using Astray body as a starting, the idea does turn out nice but somehow lack of space putting GN drive. No matter how much I tried, even putting two Sefer as a replacement of GN condenser still kind of unoriginal for me and felt something is missing. To avoid wasting too much time thinking, I move on with GN-X body and start mixing again.
There aren’t many changes done to the original GN-X kit which is considering a big mistake on my work. I should have done a research on the Master Grade version for possible modifications and even forget that I have a copy of the Hobby Japan magazine with me. Without realize it, I busted a lot of parts during the experiments building backpacks.
The head I am using is from the Astray PMC. It has a similar design like GN Archer which helps to maintain a non Gundam type looks. To improve a bit, I exchange the leg parts as well from Ahead. The shield also has been swap with GN Rasiel shield.
Finding matching weapons are also one of the tricky ideas. All the Kotobukiya weapons I brought don’t seem to fit in well for GN-X. After remembering having XN swords and GN Sword IV that I have, I decided to do quick research to see which the best. GN Sword IV was the best choice because it have multi weapons mode so I don’t have to worry too much about no range weapons. Only the original GN Beam Rifle was added last minute. It just too bad I don’t have the GN Long Barrel Beam Rifle because it going to look better with it. Damn Bandai should have just thrown inside the box.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
