Why do you feel a need to label yourself for doing something harmless?

@  Telly : (13 September 2019 - 11:10 AM)

thats more than i look at on reddit

@  Benbot : (13 September 2019 - 10:49 AM)

am I a basic bitch for only browsing the front page of Reddit?

@  Shrug : (12 September 2019 - 12:26 PM)

I managed to find about 2/3s of my goal Sega Genesis collection before the last price bump

@  Anonymous X : (12 September 2019 - 11:11 AM)

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

Like many Gamecube games, underrated

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

@  Bass X0 : (11 September 2019 - 07:43 AM)

I used a double dash on my mobile. The chat didn’t like it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2019 - 04:17 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 08:54 AM)

But it was Huuunnngrrrryyyy. What was I supposed to do?

@  MEDdMI : (08 September 2019 - 08:23 AM)

But did you feed any small fuzzy creatures after midnight?

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 06:32 AM)

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

Sounds like your computer's on its last lags, Wonko

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Dunno, crucial says it's fine, gonna need a second opinion.

@  Pennpenn : (07 September 2019 - 06:52 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Three more crashes since I pulled the ram. Verifying the OS now... tonight might be a reinstalling kinda night.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:46 AM)

And thankfully it wasn't totally dead, so it was working on occassion. If the problem is actually solved, I just need to wait and see if the program/system crashes are over.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:45 AM)

Got it. I wound up running the memtest four more times, because of course it's always the last dimm. But I got the culprit. I lost 8 gig, but I'm still at three times the "recommended" amount.

@  Hg Dragon : (07 September 2019 - 11:09 AM)

DL and run MemTest86. It'll help weed out issues. Run 1 stick at a time. Then run a stick that passed in each slot. Will help you find out if it's the RAM or the slot/motherboard

@  Patch : (07 September 2019 - 10:45 AM)

How many RAM sticks do you have total?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 09:57 AM)

Great, two weeks of random BSODs, and I manage to finally work out some ram has gone bad. Just need to work out which one(s) and then I can go from there.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:25 AM)

*just stares*

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 04:27 AM)

My french is rusty but I'd guess Italienne-americain pain du sauce

@  Nevermore : (07 September 2019 - 02:58 AM)

What do they want "pizza" to be called? Crpes superior?

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 01:11 AM)

Are they still suing Italian restaurants for having food that's insufficiently French?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (06 September 2019 - 10:31 PM)

Not even Quebec likes Quebec?

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 September 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Quebec's a special case; they just have an insatiable lust for hate

@  Ashley : (06 September 2019 - 07:48 PM)

Those weird language laws are basically anti-everyone. Who does it help to stop certain toys from being sold there?

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 September 2019 - 04:56 PM)

Canada is one of those rare countries that's paradoxically both anti-business (except for the chosen few) and anti-consumer

*Reads article* Wait, Jafar is considered "queer"? A big motive in the film is him wanting to marry Jasmine, and even has a uncomfortable (obvious to even me as a child) scene after he gains access to the lamp where he turns Jasmine into his own personal slave girl.

 

It's really "queer-coded" instead of "queer", and Disney (among others) uses it extensively with its villains: Jafar, Scar, Governor Ratcliffe, Ursula, Hades, King John, Ratigan...

 

It's the kind of things you might not consciously notice until being told about it, and then it becomes totally obvious. Of course, queerness being associated with villains *is* a big problem...

 

 

Yeah is can be a big problem, though on occasion some of those villians becomes renowned and respected for being queer coded. Ursula for example seems to be one that's been fully embraced in my experiences, while indeed others do get more looked down upon.

Uggh. I hate my life. I just want to crawl into a hole until the hormones are done. Intellectually, I know that getting "sir"-ed at restaurants and stuff is something I should keep expecting since I haven't changed my appearance that much, but I hugging hate it. It makes me just not want to go into public.

all you can do Ashley, is politely correct those who've not done it maliciously... and appropriately correct those who have.  anyone who does it accidentally isn't trying to ruin your day -we just sadly aren't psychic as a species. 

 

but we are generally an Empathetic one. If you express your discomfort to someone at the time - instead of just absorbing it and letting it fester, you do a disservice to yourself and that person who Might have just not been paying enough attention today. 

 

Lol I've been called ma'am over the phone plenty of times even after introducing myself as Jon... sometimes people just have too much going on in their own life when you encounter them. 

 

>_> I don't even have are particularly feminine voice... O-o? 

 

anywho, I hope your next dinner out goes better.

My voice is a serious problem. I've been told I have a "good deep radio announcer" voice. I've got an appointment with a speech therapist, I'm going to have to see what I can do on that front. It's going to take a lot of time, but it's not going to get better if I do nothing.

 

I know I should get better about telling people, but it's still so damn scary for me. I've got a lot of work to do on that front, too.

I went digging though the thread and found this link that I posted a ways back, it might have some information you could use. There's useful videos on Youtube for voice training as well (and just about any other trans thing you might need help with). I basically self-taught myself how to do a female voice and while it may sound rough at times if I have allergies or whatnot, I've also been complimented on it by other trans folks as well.

Oh, and while looking for storage for some figures, I found one of the worst examples of pink tax ever. Two almost identical plastic containers: the one in the fishing aisle was $3, the one in the bead aisle was $9.

Beading/crafting stuff can get ridiculous. It's often cheaper to get similar materials from the hardware or gardening section.

America's first LGBTQ-focused credit union to open in Michigan.

The credit union also will offer products such as loans for transgender people in the process of transitioning.

This definitely got my attention.

seems like a smart idea... I mean that's clearly a much needed service that nobody else seemed willing to provide.

 

I mean sure I can get a loan for a new house I can't afford, or a brand new car... hell I can even get a loan for next week's paycheck if I wanted to...

 

but try to get a loan to get a nice(er) looking bum and some C-cups ... >_> now just need that damn passport
