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

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

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

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?

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)

@  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

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

Saw the other four eps. So much stuff is happening but don't know what it's building up to! I'm excited but I don't know for what, haha.

Knight - still dead. No comment on relationship
Nap - die already, geez. Also have a theory on who it is
Junk - I thought THIS was going to be an awesome Janna ep but...

Moon's arms are normal.  The dark staining (which wasn't always consistent) was removed when she was in that magical land (that yellow water stuff got rid of it).  I'm guessing she doesn't know how it happened or care to tell Eclipsa how to remove it.  Not sure if Eclipsa cares either way.

 

I had the same thought about the Black Velvet spell.

 

I do think the magic is from Meteora via Glossaryck.

 

Regarding Queen Moon and her ancestors, not sure how they developed magic not being originally of the royal blood.  If that was addressed in the Book of Spells that was released or not (I have it, just haven't read the whole thing).  You'll note in the latest episode that Festivia's room had no magic spells (I seem to recall she didn't do any magic).  She was the Queen to have replaced Meteora as Eclipsa's descendant.

So...sounds like another episode my cable company decided wasn't "new" so I didn't get it.  Great.  What are the full titles of "Junk" and "Name" so I can find them in rebroadcast?

 

As for "how are non-royals doing magic?" remember...we've seen how the first queen got picked.  It's not the bloodline, it's the wand...if it's anything at all.  It may be that all Mewmans are magic-capable, but it takes something to unlock their potential.

Exactly!  Just like how Marco was able to do so when Star went on her magic-realm dive.

"Junkin' Janna"

"A Spell With No Name"

 

Could it be you're missing them because they air on Disney first and then XD later?

This could also be

Yeah, I thought I had it set to "all channels," but apparently not.  And then it treats the first XD showing (which used to be the first showing period) as a rerun.

Whoa, which was Festivia's room? There were all the different marks but couldn't tell what spells were inside.

Hmm, Star's been doing rainbow fist punches but I'm pretty sure she's also been doing narwhal blasts and warnicorn stampedes. Is she summoning her animal magic elements from the wand still? Unless the rooms are... general magic like the golden pool?

can't recall the title of ep when Moon was in the golden pool. I recall Star trying to get Moon to remember herself but also forgetting herself.

Btw, on the Meteora's Lesson ep, the origin of Mewni has American Pilgrims accidentally getting into a primordial magic pool area so... What's the time frame? I know time moves differently between dimensions but it doesn't seem to be the case between earth and Mewni.

Also the golden magic pool was filled with... Gators? Or are they lizards like Toffee? Toffee is a pure magic being?

If their regenerating powers were inherent, why was Rastacore so afraid like it's the first time? I'm going to assume that Glossyrick broke his arm the FIRST time because he visited Toffee and GAVE him that power. Cuz he was messing/creating the real history then.

The room they first saw the spell in.  I believe there was a painting of Festivia in it.

 

Not sure how Star's magic works now, if she just has a direct connection to the spells in that she used in the wand that way, or if they're just summoned some other way.  I wonder if there is an official explanation.

 

Time between Earth and Mewni seems equal.  If those were Earth pilgrims (which they look to be), they must be from a few hundred years ago.  Which would make sense with how many Queens of Mewni there have been.

 

I think those gators are just that.  Not sure if Toffee and the other lizard people are magic.  I'm guessing the regeneration is just a trait that the show creators gave them because certain lizards are able to regenerate parts of their body.

Agreed about Globgor.

 

I really want to see Eclipsa let loose again like she did on last season's finale.

Saw them. Holy cow, these are great eps!

Well, except for Boy and Dragon Cycle, which was fluff. But I know a friend and probably a gaggle of folks who'll probably go crazy over it. Especially the next talent over. And, ugh, it's obvious why he did that. I would think she would figure it out, d'uh.

The Queen and Monster, I agree with Janna later on. Yeah. Er, can't place th accent. Italian? Latino? Marco is already Latino.

Cornonation. Wow. But needed more evidence. Star... can't be that smart (is she? Can she? I didn't see it myself).

Also, dang it, I want season 1 fluid fight animation again. Or even season 2 (MHC vs Toffee Ludo is still the best executed fight scene). I can see how awesome the fight could have been (doing those excellent moves and the MHC doing stunts we haven't seen before) but could have been better with a bigger budget? Shuuuucks.

Don't get me started on season 1 animation compared to the following seasons.  The first 6 to 8 episodes of season 1 were so beautiful.
