Bought via free shipping from Play Asia, total delivery time about a week, and for every day I was worried something might happen to the package!

Striking a pose looking to the side... only because SHE CAN'T STARE STRAIGHT AHEAD WITH THE STAND!! Her hair get's in the way!!!

As I was arranging for this pose I realized something.. Yuki can't look UP.. her hair gets in the way! Hmm.. hair seems to be a common problem with these figures.. :P

Ok, now that I've got all three.. I'm done.. no more figures for me... hmmm maybe just this one more...

It just so happens that while I was picking up stuff for WZ (who seems to want a change of diet) I chanced upon this little guy.

This is a Gerber Clutch and it's a small multitool ideal for your keychain just like the Leatherman Squirt. They almost have the same tools, knife, pliers, screw drivers, smaller screw driver, nail file.

And they're almost the same size too!

But the main difference here is that you can ACTUALLY BUY the Gerber Clutch here in Malaysia, while the Leatherman Squirt is not brought in by the local distributor, they choose to bring in the more inferior (in my opinion :P) Leatherman Micra instead. The Clutch is also at LEAST half the price of the Squirt here.

But... you get what you paid for. The Clutch doesn't feel as well built as the Squirt. The tools on the Squirt are tight but you don't feel like you'll chip a nail flipping out the tool. The Clutch's tools are VERY TIGHT, flipping out the mini screwdriver is particularly nerve wrecking, I really feel like I might accidentally snap my fingernail off or something when pulling that open.

But other than those caveats, the Clutch is a usable keychain tool. The knife is sharp enough to be useful, having a pair of small pliers in your pocket is surprisingly useful and having a screwdriver in your pocket just comes in handy in so many situations!

Recommended if you're looking for a keychain sized multitool but not as highly as the Squirt. Damn you UFL why don't you bring in the Squirt? :P

Ok.. it was practically released a month ago, but Microsoft Sync Toy 2.0 has left the beta stage and has been officially released (hmmm... the url still says beta though)

I really love SyncToy, on my A350 I've already setup the camera so that for every new day a new folder is created to hold the pictures. When I come home after shooting all I do is plug the card into the computer, run SyncToy and everything gets thrown into the computer separated by date.

Extremely convenient and highly recommended if you need a simple tool for syncing files between two folders.

This is the start of a new ad campaign for Windows, like most on the Internet my response is... eh? It's supposed to get better for the next few ones.

On my journey to becoming a gadgeteer I came across these quick release keychains.

DSC04139

With a simple addition of a quick release mechanism, a simple keychain becomes a utility belt.. err.. ring. You could just keep attaching gear to it which you know might come in handy, like a light, separating different set of keys (house keys, car keys), heck I'd attach one to my trusty Leatherman Squirt if only I can get a spare! Cause I don't feel like just leaving my one and only Squirt on a keychain. (It's hard to find a replacement cause our Leatherman distributor doesn't seem to think it's a good idea to bring in what I'd call the BEST DAMN pocket sized tool ever!)

So when I saw this in ACE Hardware the other day.

DSC04136

A Niteize S-Biner which is essentially.. a key chain with 2 quick release ends.I don't really have a specific use for it right now but I thought I should just get one and keep it around.
