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

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?

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

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?

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

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

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)

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?

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

Photos of LG-13 Megatron in package.  Also a picture with him next to the Armada version of the mold.  The Armada one looks like it's the Hasbro one except for the horns / antlers.  They're blue / green instead of orange.  Test shot or possible TakaraTomy release?

Is that just the lighting or is his chest a different shade of silver than the rest of him?

I think it's the lighting, as his outer side of his left arm looks a similar shade.

Yeah, Id say it's the lighting combined with the unpainted gray hinges and arm pit contrasting the chest more than the rest of the silver paint.

As I suspected, LG Megs is packed in bot mode to make the box bigger to justify its Leader price point while everyone else in the line is packed in alt mode.

Maybe I'm just being suspicious, but the way Armada Megs' details and front are almost entirely intentionally obscured, along with the antler color, makes me think this is probably a Takara version.

Yeah I would have to think that there using the figure like that, and with at least a noticeable change is pointing in that direction.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if he was a Toys R Us or TakaraTomy Mall exclusive or something.

I do wonder what they can do to the layout and paint detailing different from the Hasbro version. Antlers aside, it seems to do a great job of approximating the details of Armada Megatron onto a G1 Megatron body. Since the antlers appear to be unpaintable plastic, if they changed those to the slate blue color, it would mean that his shoulder joints and a few other small parts would be that same color. I guess the shades could be different or the detailing be more cartoon accurate.

The face could be silver instead of purple.  Not that this is an improvement in my opinion, but it's more show and MIcron Legend toy accurate.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Micron Legend Megatron was similar to Armada Megatron with some minor paint differences so I guess you could argue there is no strong need for another version if they'd already darkened up the tones on the Western one and a USA edition would be just fine - if they wanted to go that route.. but there is potential to make the Takara version noticeably different if they wanted to - perhaps it might inspire a Micron campaign too as after all what is a Micron legend toy without Microns.

 

hard to say what the Japanese reaction would be though I know they like Microns to some extend still - but is the G1 obssessive just to strong an influence in Japan still to cause problems... Hopefully not.

 

It would be tragic to find out Rhinox, Rattrap or Rattrap and so on were shelf huggers in Japan.

 

Oh and if they still make some for of random repaint - I was thinking why not repaint Movie Mindwipe as Ratbat colours sometime ?.
