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

thats more than i look at on reddit

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...

@  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?

@  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)

Probably not

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

Do I need an i7 on my new computer?

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

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

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)

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

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

So Disney are dragging their heels on airing the crossover with Phineas and Ferb with it now apparently set for Jan 2019!

 

Worse, in my opinion, is that the special (which has aired outside the US) basically breaks any idea of the show having some cute nods to PaF and instead makes Milo Murphy a full on continuation. Doof is even a recurring character now.

 

What happened? Did Disney not get the numbers they were expecting and so forced them to just retool it into a Phineas and Ferb continuation?

Marsh and Povenmire have said repeatedly from early on that they planed the Phineas and Ferb connection from the beginning and designed the whole first season to build to it. So I don't think there's any chance it's being forced on them.

-ZaWilliam, that said the way Disney is treating this show is the worst of modern scheduling garbage and I can't imagine how they expect anything even a great super fun show to build an audience when they force over a year between airings with new episodes just sitting in the can. Very dumb and seemingly self destructive.

I would have thought this show was cancelled like 3 years ago.

 

Seems like they haven't aired any in that long.

The last new episode to air was the Christmas episode this time last year and that was a while after the season itself wrapped up.

-ZacWilliam, how the heck they expect a show to thrive or even be remembered with a year plus of non-existence between seasons...

While it's reruns seemed to get more play, I'm pretty sure Phineas and Ferb had similar new episode gaps.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Yeah, I basically came here to say this. I watched the first half of season 1 before just kind of forgetting it existed, then I caught some of season 2 on TV yesterday.This show has really good original bits, but it's feeling overcrowded in season 2. It's not just Doof as a side character who somehow has to fulfill a time prophecy now (like, what?) though.

 

The aliens somehow feel like a ripoff of The LEGO Movie 2, which isn't possible because development was so close for both projects, and they're not fun to have around. There's less focus on Zack and Melissa, who are pretty fun normally. The new Elon Musk type villain guy is pretty cool too, but he was only in one episode I saw. It feels muddled when a show with a set mythology sees everything pushed aside for another older show.

 

Marsh and Povenmire have said repeatedly from early on that they planed the Phineas and Ferb connection from the beginning and designed the whole first season to build to it. So I don't think there's any chance it's being forced on them.

 

Maybe Disney should have told them to do the opposite then. Phineas and Ferb was good, but it had it's time. Most of the kids who were fans at the time aged out of the demo anyways, and rehashing a show that's ended isn't really good for fun and fresh ideas.

 

I've noticed that a lot of the songs from season two aren't that great, but they keep playing instrumentals of some of the best Phineas and Ferb ones (like Disco Miniature Golfing Queen) which is an annoying reminder of how good the creative team are.

Some info I've heard recently suggests I was right. We're apparently we're getting a new Phineas and Ferb movie, which begins where Milo Murphy ends with this season. Apparently Disney wanted PaF to continue in some fashion but Dan and Swampy wanted to do a new show. Disney are now seemingly getting their way.

I hope unlike the High School Musical series, which basically confirmed that two current Disney Channel shows were ending via it's casting, this doesn't spell bad news for Milo Murphy.

 

Maybe it might be good for the series; if Phineas and Ferb are over in stream-land, Milo and his world get room to grow.

Trying to avoid spoilers, so I haven't read the last few posts (glanced to see if they touch on my question), but has anyone heard of this is ever coming back to Canada? Because I can't find ANYTHING on that, and I've already spoiled a couple of things in trying to find out.
