My hobbies posts

Kana has been doing Manga and Anime artwork for quite some time, and often does comics with her drawings. I recently experienced a different, and rather naughty, side to her artiste ability. Kana made me a really nice birthday card with a rather cute ‘n’ naughty Supergirl on the front, winking at me and lifting her top and skirt up, pouting sweetly. I was amazed when I saw her:

She’s always been a good artist, and usually does manga and Anime, so this new pin-up style really amazed me. They always say if you want to get inside an artist’s mind, watch what she doodles. It’s certainly true, if this gorgeous lady has come from Kana’s mind as her interpretation of what a Superwoman is, then I want more! Her muscle tone, curves, midriff detail, face and cheeky wink ‘n’ pout expression and the detail of her costume and cape are perfect!

UPDATE: She’s actually a picture of Kana’s ex Ariel who she met at the gym in 1998, before her and I got together in 2002. Kana got her to cosplay for her for a party years ago, Ariel loved it and pulled this cheeky pose just before they had their ahem “role-play fun time” back home later! Kana says she never forgot the pose, and drew her to keep her memory alive. Awwww!

Take a look at this pic of Supergirl Ariel being surprised at PowerGirl embracing her and cheekily lifting her skirt that I found in her artbook, as another glimpse into the sexy, strong superheroine lady filled mind of Ms. Ishikawa:

You can tell from these that she’s a wild bisexual lady that loves hot, strong, toned superheroines, isn’t afraid to show it and I love her for it. She expresses herself really well in music, and artwork, as well as when we roleplay and cosplay together, and she turns into my very own real muscly, toned Kana Zor-El, busting out Karate moves on the punchbag in her Supergirl costume, cape and boots.

Thanks SuperKana honey, I love you so much, you’re my amazing SuperLady xxxx

Didn’t we say a while back we’d introduce a sweet Japanese Supergirl? Today we just shot three new sets featuring Yurie, our cute new Japanese heroine to join our super lineup! There’s something about a cute innocent Japanese honey in a superheroine costume, cape and boots that make my heart race, SuperKana Zor-El will vouch for that! She might be cute on the outside, but as our promos show, she’s a cute kickass caped goddess!

Yurie (short for Yuriko) is an ex Martial Arts student of Kana’s who spent three years learning the arts of self defence, Kana became really close to her as a friend, she has now backed up her skills with the iconic and equally colourful cape, costume and boots of everyone’s favourite female sci-fi superheroine! She loved every minute of it, and we love her <3

These promos are full size, click them for the full image, feel free to save them too, and let SuperYurie save you in your dreams 🙂 She blew us away when she jumped into the costume for us, the colours really suit her:

Set 1: SuperYurie kicks alien facehugger/lobster ass!

This set shows how Yurie has turned from a sweet innocent Japanese angel into a kickass caped and booted superheroine, all thanks to her real life training with Kana at White Tiger Martial Arts Academy. An alien lobster/crabby/facehugger thing appears, and she kicks it straight to crustacean hell, all the while looking really mean and sexy throwing high kicks! But, in the full set, it comes back and illuminates itself with a Kryptonite coating, revealing itself as a KryptoKrab (TM KanaPhotographics), weakening our cute heroine. What will happen next?



Set 2: SuperYurie is cornered and conquered by her evil clone SuperAkiko!

In this set SuperYurie gets a surprise, out of nowhere an evil (and rather curvy and cuddly!) clone Supergirl appears who goes by SuperAkiko, and proceeds to conquer and defeat SuperYurie. Can Yurie survive? She must try to, SuperAkiko would wreak havoc if she got away:

With the KryptoNecklace round her neck, SuperYurie must be doomed…..or must she? Find out when they’re released! We are actually shooting two different endings…..

UPDATE Oct 2017 – Set 3 – SuperYurie is confronted by Catwoman & the Alien Facehugger KryptoCrab

Catwoman and Supergirl are long term enemies, and SuperYurie has luckily managed to avoid being prowled on! Until now, that is! Catwoman catches up with her after the facehugging KryptoKrab weakens her, trapping her for Catwoman to tease and play with her new mouse in a cape!

Once Catwoman catches up with her, she befriends SuperYurie, and places a KryptoNecklace round her neck, weakening her. Catwoman is then free to toy with her new caped mouse as she pleases. A lick here, a scratch there, or maybe worse?

We’re trying a new mix of heroine peril, as the superheroine always winning can get boring. Just ask SuperKana Zor-El after I trapped her in KryptoGunge recently, she wasn’t expecting her superhero to turn nasty on her (lovingly, of course, I wanted to see if she still had her acting skills, which she did!)

After a slightly longer hiatus than normal due to mine & Kana’s work lives getting busier, the superheroine site also took a break. Today though we had a bit of messy roleplay fun together! Kana decided to transform into Kana Zor-El for me, swooping around the house, she does it a lot as she knows I really like her as my own personal superheroine, with her fitness and sexy physique, the Supergirl costume makes the fantasy even more real, especially when she shows off her Martial Arts skills, as a sexy caped-and-booted superheroine it’s much more erotic to me. Except today, Ms Zor-El was in she-devil mode, and didn’t want to allow me to touch her, as she knows she really turns me on in costume, you know what that leads to 😉 She kept swooping away from me every time I tried embracing her, the cheeky minx! I could never catch her!

I didn’t drive all those miles the early hours of this morning, to see my sexy superheroine, only to have her rebel against me! So, I decided to be Kana Zor-El’s enemy, instead of her Superman, and concocted a rather messy trap plan with Mika. I told her that Mika needed her in the spa room, once we trapped her, Mika embraced her, got her down on the floor, kissed her a few times, and then suddenly began covering her in KryptoGunge! SuperKana soon weakened up, and couldn’t swoop off, lying there writhing on the floor in (pretend) agony, covered in debilitating green goo!

Look at her trying to resist it! Her costume and cape’s all gooey so she ain’t getting away! Mwahahaha! I finally got SuperKana in front of the camera, begging us not to humiliate her! She’s so cute when in gooey Krypto-peril! She’s a really good actress and played the part well 🙂

She’d hidden my Superman costume, too, so this was perfect payback to get her to tell me where she’d hidden it (I couldn’t rescue her until I was in it!), and I could be her enemy until she did! It reminded me of the scene from the 1984 Supergirl film where Helen Slater falls into the pit of blue gunge after being lured to the Phantom Zone, and gets weaker and weaker trying to escape as she has no superpowers there. It was the best part!

I’m tempted to fill our outdoor pond and have SuperKana re-enact that in our tasty green goo! To stick to the family friendly nature of TideLog, let’s just say what happened next was very messy, naughty and energetic (I “rescued” her but she had to love-wrestle me first to get me back for trapping her!), but the WAM fans in us loved it! That is what roleplay love is all about!

Don’t worry, our KryptoGunge doesn’t ruin the sexy costumes, it’s actually edible, but I’m not giving the recipe! It isn’t washing up liquid, that foams up too quick even without contact with water. It was all good pretend messy tasty fun. No superheroes, superheroines or their costumes were hurt 🙂 You need to be careful what you use for things like this, as the colours of the costume can be affected by certain substances. Kana and I have really expensive Supergirl/Superman costumes for conventions, which are replicas of film/comic ones, and then we have the cheaper ones for our WAM and private sexual play which don’t really matter as they can be replaced if damaged.

Kana’s back on the seasonal Martial Arts school shifts this month until August, to keep her superhuman strength in check 🙂 We’re working on some new content too, and not all clean as it has been previously, but a bit messier than SuperKana above 🙂

Since Mika and me bought Kana her new jet-ski (who Kana has christened Jenny the Jetski), we’ve run it twice. Once when Mika and me got it from the dealer in Wales, and then again on Xmas Day when Kana lovingly, expertly and excitedly rode us round the lake in the meadow near us in the Midlands. This week, because we’ve had some nice weather in the UK, we took Jenny The Jetski out to Brighton beach, donned our wetsuits, and had wet wild fun!

On the second day the ski just suddenly went limp to a cruise speed. I thought Kana had lost her nerve, and urged her to open the throttle more:

Me: “C’mon K, faster, faster! Open Jen up a bit more! Mika’s loving it back here!”

Kana: “Throttle’s wide open! She’s gone limp! I think she’s scared of water, she’s a newbie!”

After some juddering and hiccuping she stalled completely and wouldn’t start again. The symptoms pointed to either misfueling, or seawater had entered the engine somewhere. Kana has never accidentally misfueled a vehicle, ever, and she confirmed she hadn’t, as we keep the jet-ski octane fuel in special containers, they don’t run on diesel or petrol, only octane based fuel.

I confirmed no leaks had occurred, and on the second restart attempt, fault code P0606 appeared in the infodisplay, which according to the SeaDoo fault diagnosis manual relates to engine ECU failure. At just over a total of 8 hours old, Kana’s new jetski is a paperweight, and cut our watersports trip to Brighton & Hove short and we had to come back to Birmingham. It’s a good job we have a dealer warranty, the ECU’s alone are over half a grand, and that’s un-programmed!

I suspect the dealer has misdiagnosed (or completely missed, if it was intermittent) the fault when the original owner returned it, and it’s come back for us! They’re coming out to us on Wednesday, thankfully 🙂

This is another wear related symptom, and often occurs on power down of an old system after a power cut. It is again to do with the input regulation circuit (the main resistor, diodes, and rectifier transistors bolted to the keypad chassis). If your Optima starts OK on battery, but not on just the mains, the cause of this is the CPU isn’t getting enough power to start up from the AC to DC rectification stage. The start sequence goes visually like this:

  1. Power is applied, the regulators get up to working voltage, and start supplying power to the CPU.
  2. The LED’s all come on, briefly, as the CPU boots up, doing its self test of itself, and the NVRAM, containing your code and exit/entry timers.
  3. Within a few milliseconds of 2 above, once the CPU has started, the LED’s go out, and the alarm now goes into a full alarm condition, leaving just the Power LED on, and any open Zone LED’s. If no zones are open, just the power LED is on.

If the LED’s all stay on with no more activity or sound, the CPU isn’t starting correctly, because the voltage to it is insufficient coming from the AC to DC rectifier stage. Allowing the alarm to start here going into full alarm, would cause too much current inrush, and voltage drop to sustain keeping itself running, due to the strobe/bell and 13v PIR’s drawing power when there isn’t enough.

The transformer puts out 16.2v AC. If the voltage at your battery charge terminals with no battery connected is less than 14v, (the last one I did was 10v) the whole system is being starved of power. The two transistors that are bolted through the keypad chassis need to be replaced, the big three-legged things top right of this picture with the holes through the tags:

Optima-XM-board-faulty-regulators

I always replace both to make sure, as they can be quite stressed out at such an old age, and be breaking down under load, as does the 47 ohm battery resistor. I also check the capacitors accompanying them. The leftmost transistor is a Toshiba TA7805S Positive Voltage Regulator which seems to be the battery regulator, I’ve uploaded the datasheet to Tidelog HERE. The second (rightmost) transistor is an ST Microelectronics LT8I5CV, for which I cannot find a datasheet, and I assume is the AC rectifier stage’s main DC regulator.

I am attempting to find suitable modern equivalents for these regulators, so if any electronics guys out there can help, I’d be most grateful, as finding info on these 15+ year old components is tricky! I’m running out of working ones to cannibalize off old unrepairable Optima boards! A good alternative to the Toshiba TA7805S is the Panasonic AN7805F, the datasheet is on TideLog, HERE, for you to take a peek at, if you understand electronics 🙂
