    ThreeA's newest exclusive is Punterbot Sniper  screenshot

    ThreeA might not have anything up in the Bambaland store right now, but that doesn't mean they're not releasing anything. In fact, they've just released their latest exclusive, the Punterbot Sniper. Dressed in sniping military fatigues and carrying one heck of a big sniper rifle, this guy means serious business.

    It's got a price of 890 yuan (about US$142) and it's an exclusive to Chinese distributor BBICN. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go put on my sad face.

  • 01/14/12--23:59: Christmas Pin 2011

  • I was surprised when I went to write this blog post as I was sure I had written about it every Christmas since 2005.    Obviously what I had remembered and what actually happened were two different things.  It seems the last time I had written about this was December 2008.  It's not fun when your mind starts to play tricks on you as you get older.  It's either that or I just have too many fires going at the same time and can't keep track of all of them.  Probably the latter!

    If you're a reader of my Linda's Blog then you know that I love Christmas traditions and have been posting for a couple of years about a Christmas tradition my Dad started a very long time ago.  Or, so I thought!

    Many, man years ago my Dad wanted to give "his girls" meaning my Mother, myself, and my sister something special for Christmas. Back then the term "his girls" did not imply the possessive chauvinistic implications that it does today. To my Dad it was nothing more than a term of endearment. One that separated us from "his boys", my brothers.

    So my Dad decided to buy each of "his girls" a special Christmas pin to wear during the holidays. He bought us pins the first year, and then the second, and so on and so on and so on. My wonderful husband decided to carry my Dad's tradition on after he passed away. So, every year he gives me a Christmas pin. Sometimes he can't decide which one he likes best so I get two special Christmas pins. That's okay with me as I cherish each and every one of them.

    This year hubby gave me the Christmas Santa & reindeer pin shown above. It's an adorable and cheery little pin and totally unlike any of the others I have in my collection.  I just LOVE it.

  • 01/14/12--23:59: Japan Wireless Router

  • Had been using our Buffalo wireless router for a while now. Since then a load of new wireless standards came out which provide higher networking speeds. As the wireless speed of the old router was slow, I kept most of our macs in the house wired via LAN cable.

    It was time to get a new router and get rid of those cables - I even had a cable running up the side of my house outside the window ^^; After removing all the LAN cables from around the house, this is what I was left with - 202 kilometers with of cable and dust.

    The new savior is the AtermWR9500N PA-WR9500N-HP by NEC. Cost 11,299 yen - cheapest prices available at

    Tis surprisingly small. While the wireless speeds are not as fast as the wired, the hassle of keeping everything wired was too costly in terms of time management for me.

    The new router kicks 7 shades of poo out of my old one. The WR9500N supports speeds of up to 450Mbps over the wireless network and maintains a good signal throughout all 3 floors of my house.

    The WR9500N comes with all the standard features that we expect from a wireless router these days. You can attach any HDD to the router and the files on that HDD will be available on the local network. Devices that support DLNA can browse any media files on the HDD too.
    You can also attach a webcam and access that from outside the network on WAN.

    The WR9500N supports both 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands, 802.11b, 802.11a, 802.11g and 802.11n. You can access the router at the local IP where you can configure everything via a browser including opening ports to setup a home server and wot not.

    Nice n compact. Comes with a stand so that you can keep it either upright or on its side. The USB cable you see here is attached to a HDD - no need to have an extra machine just to serve up files on the network.

    Most pleased with this purchase - bit on the expensive side compared to other wireless routers but certainly worth it.

    But before the NEC router, I went for the Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H. I chose Buffalo because I had been using their wireless routers for many years.

    Compared to the NEC WR9500N, the Buffalo version feels light and tacky - not too bothered as long as it does the job though - but it didn't do its job!
    The Buffalo WZR-HP-AG300H kept on dropping the connection. Went to google the reason and as I was typing in "WZR-HP-AG300H", the first suggestion was "WZR-HP-AG300H 途切れ." [途切れ[とぎれ]] in this case means "dropped connection."

    Seems that many others have the same problem. There were suggestions to change the channel from an auto to a manual setting but that didn't do any good.

    Rather than waste any more time with the Buffalo, I asked comrades on my Twitter who recommended the NEC.

    The back of the Buffalo. Just like the NEC, its got a USB socket to attach a HDD to serve up files on the network. But it was hideously slow - after browsing to a directory, I'd have to wait quite a while before all the files are listed. The shared files on the NEC however list pretty much straight away.

    And the old Buffalo router on the left.
    What brand of wireless router are you using?
    There is a poll embedded in this article.

    And here are my Internet speeds over the wireless network - 83.61Mbps/down and 10.37Mbps/up - the upload rate is usually much higher though. Currently pay about 6,000 yen for the connection. My provider is Nifty and the optic cable is provided by NTT.
    What sort of connection do you have and what are you paying for it?

    Hubby liked the cross-stitch bird stamp that I had created for my sister-in-law so much that he asked if I was going to do one for us.  I, of course, said "SURE!" After all if you're a cross-stitch junkie who can resist an invitation to create another cross-stitch. Definitely not me!

    I only had two bird stamps left and decided to go with the "Noel Ornament" as it was also very festive and cheery.  Plus, since the Dimensions Gold Collection Petites were all  4 1/4" squares I knew I could make a small picture for us as well.

    Like the other Dimensions Gold Collection kits I had bought the   "Noel Ornament"   kit included the pattern, pre-sorted cotton thread, 18 count ivory cotton Aida, felt, needle and instructions.  They also said that thick craft glue and quilt batting would be needed.

    The  "Noel Ornament"   pattern uses full counted cross-stitch, half cross-stitch and outline stitching  for emphasis and depth and this detailing really makes the picture stand out. The design of this cross-stitch gives the finished picture a 3 dimensional aspect with the half cross stitch and outlining being used for artistic effect.

    The pattern came with starting, stitching, finishing and even cleaning instructions as well as samples of the various stitches required, and color coded keys (with code #'s, lengths, color names, and cross-stitch symbols) and a chart with color coded symbols. The colors and symbols on the keys and chart were easy to read and follow.

    While I was very pleased with the end results of this design there are some things in the kit and in the instructions that can be improved upon.

    As was the case with previous Dimensions kits the thread sorter was poorly designed. The embroidery threads were glued to two foam backed 6" by 1 1/4" strips of cardboard that had a picture of the color of the thread and it's number. In order to get to the threads you had to separate the foam back from the cardboard strip. Very quickly the threads separated from their section and then you no longer knew what the thread number was to tie to your symbols & legends. I had to punch a hole in the thread sorter cardboard strip just below the color of the thread & it's number and then insert the threads through the hole and tie them in a loose knot so my threads, colors, and numbers would stay together.

    I also added the symbols to the strip to make reading the chart easier.  To make things even easier for the user the color symbol should have been shown on the thread sorter strip of cardboard as well. That way you would only need to use the thread sorter strip of cardboard to follow your chart.

    The pattern also calls for certain areas of the picture to be left untouched so the white linen color could show through for that area:  It's the white section in the picture below surrounding the stamp border:

    However, I don't like the fabric showing in different sections of the background so I opted instead to finish the white sections with half cross-stitching. My results with the totally finished white sections are shown below:

    The finishing calls for squaring the back and then sewing felt onto to the back to finish the ornament.  Instead of doing that I decided I wanted to finish my stamp as a small picture.  So, I decided to add 4 additional rows of dark green floss in half-stitch around the entire picture to create the effect of a mat border and then to glue the entire picture flat to a cardboard square.   I had chosen a white frame to finish it which I think really brought out the festive colors of the stamp and really looked nice next to my green floss mat.

    It took me 36 hours to complete this picture not including the framing.  Despite the problems I encountered with the thread sorter I was very happy with the way my   "Noel Ornament"  turned out. There is a lot going on in a very small cross-stitch picture and it is amazing to see.

    Well, hubby liked it so much he said, "So, when are you going to finish the next one?" I, of course, was tempted to drop everything I was doing and start it right then and there, but decided I had other crafty things I needed to do to get ready for the holidays so this would have to wait. So, I said, "Maybe after the holidays, dear." I'm sure that came as a surprise to him! Gotta keep him guessing!
