TFCC Exclusive Over-Run & Drift Pre-Order Bail Out

The pre-order for Over-run (Runamuck) & Evil Drift suddenly went live yesterday morning at 6AM. I was awake at the time and reading at same hour. It was really hard decision thinking over the money and hit the check out without realizing going to spend over $200.00 for these damn toys.

Luckily the TFCC store credit card system crash with error due to the high volume orders once it went live. These give me more time to think and finally decided to bail out as well not renewing the membership this year.

Why did I make that decision? Simple, the TFCC pissed me off. Last year, I wasn’t even able to get any single order of Ramjet even becoming a member, thanks to the late e-mail pre-order notification and had to read the Transformers fan news site to know it went live.

Second problem, the TFCC store doesn’t give any other option choosing cheaper shipping method. This gives me a thought if G2 Ramjet were available at the time. This would probably cost more than masterpiece Transformers. How much? The shipping at least over US$60.00 for Express Mail International only two toys WITHOUT ANY BUBBLE WARPING! You need to pay US$3.50 for it! WTF? I am fine and safe with paying first class mail international fee. It never lost and rarely late experience. Yet TFCC still doesn’t want to offer this option.

Never mind that, the third and worst. My exclusive Side Burn wing almost breaks because of shitty cheap saving packing empty box with nothing inside protecting the toy. Yes, without ANYTHING! These guys really don’t know how to make its member happy. How expensive it was throwing in recycles or uses cheap packing foam. Hasbro is a big company and they can’t find any single recycle warping plastic or foam at the office? Seriously?

To be honest, I am really shock with such experience and not quite fun joining the membership. If you only aimed at only the yearly free exclusive figure with six bi-monthly full printed color magazines only for US$78.00 yearly. You can go for it. But if you plan on getting exclusive pre-order figure or others at the TFCC store, you better off not to unless you are rich, willing to pay for high amount shipping fee or living (study) in US. Maybe cheaper if you got friends there to work it out.

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.
