RX-79(G) GM Sniper Support Unit

There are tons of photos I always forget and promise myself to upload. But once I got back from work or exercise, everything forgotten. Now, this is the opportunity to make up for it!

Actually the GM Sniper - Support Type was built for the local Gunpla GM vs Zaku group build competition. For some unknown reason, it was cancel even the Expressive Art convention were not held (new law, maybe) last year so it was never successfully submit. Check out my last Gunpla built from last year. I will blog a short post of my work in progress later.

Silly Server Disastrous Create by Human

It was definitely silly that I have to waste my effort working over time for nothing. Yesterday, our company server suddenly went disaster when our Exchange services crash at the morning before lunch.  I thought it was normal or even maybe just some errors so I decided to remotely log in and restart the server during lunch. After that, things went nuts and the screen showing the 'Applying Computer Setting' running for more than an hour including signing into the account.

Apparently the problem shows many of the Exchange services crashes unable to start automatically which took freaking long continuously trying load. Luckily, my finding in the event logs prove I didn't screw up the server since the problem started after 11AM. Phew~! But what I'm curios was how the fuck suddenly happen like that?

Well, I’m not a god damn expect on Exchange so have to rely on Google.  I can't seem to be able to find the right answers for two and half hours sitting in the server room figuring out the right solution. I tested many methods doesn't work and did however found about turning on the IPV6 on the Local Area Connection network properties setting. Honestly, I have no confidence on the solution and afraid I might somehow screw it up even more badly. Every choices involve some risk not unless I went for the training then I dared to try. It just never did and the right answer was turning on the IPV6 then it SOLVED EVERYTHING!!!

It was solved by my colleagues at night. Very simple method and just remember when I first install Microsoft Exchange require IPV6 including connected to network to work properly even during fresh installation. No matter if you are not using you must always turn it on. Such little details I couldn’t remember.

This beg a question why it was turned off the first place? We all thought could be a server 2008 |R2 related bug since one of my colleagues who work on it never update or patching any Windows update during fresh installation. Somehow, it wasn't the case not until today it happen again in the morning. We finally caught the culprit and non other my XXXXXXX.

Yup, censor. I have my reason but if you are smart. You should already guess. Nonetheless, I am fucking pissed I work over time and rush back to HQ for nothing when someone simply screws around not even bother to check if the server is running properly or not. Even worst, not informing us he had done something on it, just keeping quiet. I really hate this kind of irresponsible people. Every day, I had to worked angrily thinking how to escape this huge mess and avoid slowly involving into it. I already sick of dealing with a dumbass who still showing no improvement at work and now another trying something silly. I am really sick and tired all of this.

New Syariah Law Create Fear

As an Atheist, I wish this is not happening and sadden by it. The introduction of the new Syariah law really cause a lot of criticisms to the country every time it hit the local news. The latest articles “Wearing indecent clothing is crime under Syariah law” already become the laughing topic of all time and the arguments are still ongoing.

I got to say the majority of the locals who are Muslim does make a good points regards of this matter. Even myself also agree Brunei are simply moving backward. Everyone understand that maintaining tradition is important task making sure the new generation won't forget the old cultures. However, our tourism are poor, less developed and now the raise of unemployment’s, even worst, crimes. Such ongoing problem becomes low priority instead. It was really stupid seeing them pouring all the unnecessary resources getting Syariah law out on April this year.

The legal officials assure us that Syariah law will not affect non-Muslim and will follow same legal system during last year citizenship induction. Now they are saying non-Muslim can be prosecuted. They did mention only unless involve with Muslim. In what manners are still left unquestioned and causing more worried. Why?

“Testimony must be from at least two witnesses, and preferably free Muslim male witnesses, who are not related parties and who are of sound mind and reliable character; testimony to establish the crime of adultery, or zina must be from four direct witnesses. Forensic evidence (i.e., fingerprints, ballistics, blood samples, DNA etc.) and other circumstantial evidence is likewise rejected in hudud cases in favor of eyewitnesses, a practice which can cause severe difficulties for women plaintiffs in rape cases.” @Wikipedia

Forensic and circumstantial evidence can be rejected in favor of eyewitnesses are definitely bullshit. Don't forget, CCTV footage too were mention recently. How can we allow trusting the eyewitnesses alone without support from the forensic finding in the court? How do we even know the eyewitnesses are not related to the parties? What if the eyewitnesses are racists? This is what everyone fears the most and how the courts going handle the cases.

Of course, I do understand why HM would resort bringing Syariah law. Let's face it, Brunei no longer consider peaceful as describe. You know, I know, people took advantage doing silly things (e.g. Government job scam, remember?) and we forget our surrounding safety. The numbers of crimes are increasing and that is the facts.

No matter what, I still don't agree going such extend taken against the Muslim. Some may like it but majority (be honest) doesn't. My most concern are hoping for the news of the citizenship status because I heard serious shit and am fucking pissed learning from someone behind it. For now, we just have to wait for the upcoming HM announcement speech on the national day.

Build Forever Gundam – W.I.P #1

Gunpla have been evolved quite unexpectedly fast after the announcement Gundam Build Fighters animation. Bandai feature even more upgrades and add-on choice for modelers to expand their ideas. Thanks to them I was able to continue most of my piling backlog collections starting with Forever Gundam.

I got it two years ago through the promotion and have no idea why bother to buy when you got plan for this kit in the first place. The release Booster packs change the entire High Grade kits combination laws. However, only three were released last year and Build Booster was my best choice.

Build Booster

The Build Booster has a flaw in the design because it no longer using rubber pieces for some parts. Everything is plastic which easily wear out the parts especially both the side thruster rotating area. To counter this issue, I use the existing Gunpla convertor joints combine with rubber pieces.

At first I did think about using poly joints over the convertor joints. Since I don't have any stocks or suitable size, the idea was abandon. But I would like to try it next time. Poly joints allow more movable   area compared to only just fixed rotating joint.

New Custom Weapons

Building a custom weapon is a tricky idea especially dealing with funnels weapon. I already use two replacing the pair beam cannon for the Build Booster. The remaining does given me some headache for hours. Once I think about the MSV Full Armor Gundam and also Gundam Age Assault Jacket weaponry. It caught my attention making into 2-Barrel Funnel Beam Gun.
