Godoka arrives, and so does Char

January 2, 2013

This morning Mrs Mail Lady dropped off Good Smile Company’s “Godoka” figure in a rather large box. Measuring in at around 35 cm by 36 cm by 37 cm, Godoka is not a small girl. What Mrs Mail Lady didn’t tell me was that she’d put another figure in the mail boxes. Hours and hours later I finally bother to check the normal mail and lo and behold, Kotobukiya’s Char arrived as well.

Sayame by Questioners

December 1, 2012

It’s been almost 3 years since I originally posted about Sayame at Wonder Festival 2010 (Winter) and longer still since I originally saw her and wished for her. With that kind of build up it’s near impossible for her to live up to my expectations. So, instead of the usual ‘studio’ review, I’ve decided to […]

Quickie 2.326: Spice & Wolf Vol.7 (Manga)

November 21, 2012

Yet another Spice & Wolf related item has arrived. Strangely, persons living within the United States seem to have received their copy of Spice & Wolf Vol.7 (Manga) before Canadians did. I don’t recall that happening in the past.

Quickie 2.317: Gloomy day with Horo

November 12, 2012

Seeing as there aren’t many warm days left with fall progressing quickly and winter rapidly approaching, I decided to take the opportunity today to go out for a ride. It was a balmy 15°C / 59°F and windy as heck!

Collection Update 2.316

November 11, 2012

A great deal of time has passed since I last posted about the status of my collection. In that time many many items have arrived, and just as many ordered. I’ve already posted some that have arrived since the last update such as E2046’s Gathering series Horo, Alter’s Kaminagi Ryoko as well as Kotobukiya’s “Plug Suit Style” Ayanami Rei, so I wont address those.

Last Nice Day of the Year?

October 26, 2012

Recently went out for an 8-9 hour motorcycle ride through southern Ontario. I could have chosen a better route perhaps but all in all I was quite happy with the sights, which I’d seen before for the most part. One thing differed though, Godrich Ontario had been hit by an F3 Tornado since the last time I’d visited the downtown core. Sadly I didn’t remember this and didn’t take any pictures of the progress, I just thought there was a lot of construction… doh!

Server Migration

October 20, 2012

This past weekend has been a busy one so far as Tailgrab’s back-end is concerned. The site was migrated off it’s “512” node to a “1024” as well as some architecture changes to how the site is served. The reason behind this move isn’t that the site required more resources, on the contrary, Tailgrab had more than sufficient resources on the smaller node. Rather, the move was to consolidate the resources I had between various nodes and simplify management.
