  1. watched ep1 of Karakuri Circus. i think i'll keep watching because of the musical score
  2. was this note on their webpage or sent via email or was it in the shipping box(es)? mine went straight into storage so i don't know if i should open it up and get that note in case i need it for claiming the figure come release day.
  3. anyone here from PH who also ordered this from the KidsLogic store? was it shipped via fedex and were you taxed? been busy and just saw KL email from last month notifying they are ready to ship my order via fedex.
  4. i like it. i've never seen high key photography done on a valk before. quite a refreshing take.
  5. was watching S;G Zero ep.8 when a massive thunderclap from out of nowhere shook my windows, just when Kurisu sent a D-mail. did the worldline change? have to investigate. El. Psy. Kongroo.
  6. thanks. so quite a bit shorter i'm torn between starting on this new line or waiting for more DX releases. already have the DX Mazinger and Combatler and various GX

    how's amiami these days with cancellations? just a nice email and they let you do it? or do they still give you crap about account bans and cancelation of existing orders? i have some pending orders i don't want to risk
  9. using Synology DS413 a bit over 5 years. 1 drive (disk#2, 2 years on previous NAS, a DS211) failed after 2 years on the DS413 (so, 4 yrs service life). rebuild went without a hitch. 2nd drive (disk#1, also from previous NAS) went on the 3rd year of the DS413 (5 yrs service life). again, rebuild was seamless. then on the 5th year of the DS413, one of the original drives of the DS413 (disk#4) failed after 5 yrs service, then during the rebuild, another drive, disk#2 which i replaced 3 yrs earlier, developed bad sectors that couldn't be read and caused the volume rebuild to fail. had i been using RAID6 (double fault tolerance), which was one of the options presented to me during setup, the rebuild would've still completed. but the extra capacity of my 2 newer drives (5 TB each) would've gone to waste. volume size would just be 2 x 3TB (older drives) = 6TB but i got greedy and chose SHR (Synology Hybrid Raid) which optimized volume size to ~8TB at the start , and growing to ~12TB as i replaced the smaller drives to the same capacity as the bigger drives. SHR only has single fault tolerance. fortunately i was still able to access the NAS and backed up to a bunch of portable drives. in the end, less than 10GB was lost due to the unreadable bad sectors. i still haven't gotten around to rebuilding my NAS since i got super busy, and i figured i should just upgrade to a DS418play this summer. what i learned: go for double fault tolerance especially when using very big drives. if at all possible, resist the temptation of >6TB drives. they'll take forever to rebuild and will really test your luck, even with double fault tolerance. might be better just getting a second NAS unit for expansion.

  11. was the Arcadia Altira island available at any of the WF tables? or has anyone seen it pop up recently on YJA? still looking for one.
  12. i've ordered all three (combattler dx, PF SDF-1, arcadia garland) considering the size, engineering, diecast, electronics, accessories; the combattler looks like a bargain compared to other two. and i'm not even a fan of combattler.
  13. i just wish they would release a figure of Theresa

  17. any indications if this is selling well or not?
  18. here: http://www.pavilion-kl.com/viewstore/Toy-Garden the shopowner did mention that they had some more stock off-site, so either call in advance or go in the morning and if they don't have stock in-store, they may be able to get one for you while you have lunch
  19. this is just a recolor of this, right? but now they're calling the blue one in 1/20 scale?
