令人失望的Autoart Porsche 959

By admin, August 13, 2010 23:28

今天在香港看到和摸到了實物﹐說實在的﹐完全不值得港幣900(這是打8折後)這個價格﹐外形還不如我那些幾年前的EXOTO 959準確﹐車頭燈做的肯定不夠EXOTO好﹐水撥簡直開玩笑﹐車尾不夠EXOTO 的圓潤﹐紅色PORSCHE燈飾模糊一片﹐內飾雖然精細但顏色太漆黑﹐看不出什麼細節﹐車門裡面感覺太塑料﹐引擎室只有那麼一點進步。整體來說最多值港幣600﹐所以我放棄了購買這台銀色和之後的紅色﹐白色還有一丁點興趣。

自己比較了一下幾年前EXOTO做的和這星期AUTOART推出的959。最主要覺得AUTOART的959外形不太准,EXOTO的圓潤很多,外形比較接近真車。959尾巴的外形,大家可以自己比較一下:

希望AA最后不要爆出事實真相如“其實我們用的就是EXOTO多年前的模具,所以應該沒兩樣”(翻白眼)

Coming soon, a must have item for all Jag’s die-hard fans. I am going to get the Silver/Red Roadster and the Green/Red Coupe.

烈艷紅唇Aston Martin DBR9 #58

By admin, August 10, 2010 12:14

今天有幸得到了另一款的24 Hours of Le Mans Aston Martin DBR9  #58﹐上AA網站查了一下﹐原來橙紅色嘴唇的其實出過兩款﹐而又以這款的橙紅色顯得特別突出。(前幾天才在MC論壇裡看到有模友把這台拍的特別有氣勢)

離遠觀看下﹐原來這台DBR9看來還真像中國年畫裡橙紅色的鯉魚嘴﹐尤其那橙紅色的嘴唇和大大的眼睛﹐之前收的那台素綠色版的DBR9反而覺得沒這麼顯眼。200810814334360_2

最後樓下的銀色F430今天又出現了﹐這次拍到了大部份車身和那透明的紅色引擎蓋(好看﹗)。值得稱讚的是﹐車主今天的質數改良了不少﹐馬的脾氣也大大收斂了不少﹐再沒有像之前的那樣耀武揚威了﹐可能他幾個月前第一次做了法拉利車主後﹐那份興奮的感覺已經急速下降﹐憑他換車的經驗來估計﹐看來他下一台換的應該會是林寶大牛才對口味。

Some of my findings from past 2 months research

By admin, August 9, 2010 23:21

The new Virtual Data Center project has been keeping me really busy, the followings are some of my findings.

  • Learn that R810/M910 with 4 sockets will only use 1 memory controller instead of two, memory bandwidth will be cut by half, that sucks! Strange enough, when R810 populates with 2 sockets only, it will use both memory controllers and gain access to all 32 DIMMS. So R810/R910 is still best for 2 sockets server, that why we switch to R710 instead after read the benchmarking, it’s a waste of money to go for R810.
  • DDR3L low voltage (1.35V), we populate with 2 DPC (8GB x 12 DIMMS), guess what? Voltage will shoot to normal 1.5V! and no one at Dell pre-sales or pro-support can answer us this, I found out this fact from HP’s resources, ridiculous! Anyway, it’s still running at 1333Mhz, that’s a bless.
  • Equallogic PS6000XV 15K should be a monster, we will only be worried about adding front-end (like R710/R720/R730) and adding back-end PS6000XV/PS7000XV etc. in the future, that’s main selling point for this solution, scalable beyond imagination, this really is the whole motivation we selected EQL boxes.
  • With the release of vSphere 4.1, VAAI, iSCSI Off-load fully support on Broadcom 5709 but no Jumbo Frame, what the heck! EQL vStorage off-load improvement, Multipath plugin (EQL finally solved the big problem)
  • One box of PS6000XV is good enough for 4Gbps, absolutely no need to go for 10Gbps for the time being except you are aiming for that 200M/s increase (yes, it can only reach 650M/s at max, there is no way reaching 1000M/s in reality. We were also told by paying about 1/4 of the box, you can always upgrade to 10Gbps version of PS6010XV in the future, but for our environment, IOPS is way demanding than thoughput, so 4Gbps is more than enough, just get a PowerConnect 5448 with 48 ports, we should have lots of space to grow from here.
  • There is a special iSCSI Key need to be purchased in order to have TOE+iSCSI Off-load on R710, this is the same on HP Proliant servers.
  • Found HP Proliant’s server resources are much more professional than Dells’, but Dell’s stuff are a lot cheaper (1/3 at least), so we just have to live with that.
  • In ESX 4 or above, Thick provisioning is always recommended for performance concerned VM applications, it’s a lot faster.
  • Talked to two of the local IDC who’s going to start a cloud business, but their core technical team doesn’t seem to know what they are really doing, seemed they have a long way to go comparing with US counterparts.
  • Again, virtualization is the future and you need a good SAN to support it!
  • Talk to your inside sales manager, show your sincerity, you will be rewarded and get unbelievable discount at quarter end!
  • Dell’s EQL expert is really helpful and resourceful, thank you so much! You are really the super-hero, kick-ass type!

好玩有型1比8的Aston Martin V8 Vantage遙控車

By admin, August 2, 2010 11:30

雖然是遙控車﹐但1比8的大傢伙來的也夠氣勢﹐前後燈可以在向前倒後分別亮燈﹐還有兩級換擋加速﹐開車時發出模擬引擎咆哮聲﹐最利害的是竟然可以玩出一點點“漂移”的效果﹐整架車在最後衝刺時打轉﹐然後改變方向。

這台Aston Martin V8 Vantage做的最好看的是車尾巴﹐比真車還要大和短﹐加上那誇張的輪子﹐的確讓我高興了好一陣子。

就快賣給人﹐臨別前拍照留念。

經典中的經典﹕BENZ 1955鷗翼SLR

By admin, July 31, 2010 22:19

從去年頭CMC公佈此產品後就一直在等待﹑到近3個月的推遲﹑前兩個星期終于摸到了樣品﹐直至今天才第一時間跑去車模店把它捧了回家。

喜歡50年代奔馳鷗翼的朋友們可能會問﹐這部怎麼跟普通版的300SL長相不太一樣﹐要知道此鷗翼SLR不同彼鷗翼SL﹐它來的其實更加跑味濃厚。題外話﹕當年的那次歷史性賽道悲劇令BENZ決定退出以後所有的比賽﹐SLR也就從那時起在人間慢慢地消失了。

自己覺得CMC的做工越來越嚴謹﹑部件也越來越精細﹐作為玩家們當然也越來越愛不釋手。看那漂亮的弧線﹑細緻的車輪鋼絲﹑紅色的內飾還有那可以旋轉90度角的小窗等都添加了這鷗翼的觀賞度和收藏樂趣。

這下好了﹐它終于可以跟原來Minichamps的銀色奔馳300SL結為夫婦了。

Autoart Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-2 Balboni & Porsche

By admin, July 14, 2010 11:56

I saw the real orange LP560-2 Balboni in Lamborghini’s show room last month, and it’s quite shape especially with the stripe deco and the coming Porsche 959 is also another highly expected collector’s item from Autoart, hopefully its upgraded quality can bring much improvement over Exoto’s 10 years old Porsche 959.
