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? : (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.

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

The Bubba episode didn't do much for me as far as Bubba himself was concerned since he was mostly just the same as he was in the old show and, while I do like the original Bubba, something I find to be one of this show's strengths is how it usually gives us really good reinterpretations of the familiar characters, and was hoping to see the same done for Bubba. Yet, what we got was basically the same version as the original rather than a neat new take on the character.

 

Like I said, I like the original Bubba, but if I want to see the original Bubba, I'll watch the Bubba episodes of the original series.

 

What I did like, however, was the development for both Louie and Della. That crack he made about her at the end was gut-punching.

They probably figured that Bubba was so ridiculous the first time, that they couldn't reinterpret him while still being him. So they made him the same only to Huey's frustration at how historically inaccurate he is. :D

I feel like they are doing something with him, by keeping him the same considering what they set up for the ending. I can imagine him returning in future episodes some how and expanding on him maybe being the First McDuck.

Almost caught up. To the hiatus, urgh.

87 cent solution, Glomgold is hilarious. But stupid thing is the 'time teaser' being thrown out by Gyro. Unless it's continuity cuz he was messing with a pocket watch that didn't work in the wild west and only the hot tub time machine worked.

Della returning, yeah, the moon general guy is bad. I don't like Penumbra really.

Della adjusting, eh. I hate all this attention on Louie. Give me more Huey.

Doomsday Vault, aw, Ludwig is dead already. And has three kids? He got married? Weird. Glomgold is everywhere.

Friendship hates magic, I actually cried tears when Lena came back. Seriously. I'm glad she's back. Where will she live now? And awesome that Beakly is into Darkwing, hehe

We watched the latest two episodes today. I thought it was pretty scummy of them going to the one place Louie wanted to go on an adventure while he was grounded.

 

Loved that Louie schemed them all, and the reaction of Scrooge when he lost was awesome.   

 

So is this a cliffhanger ending for the season or are there more episodes still coming?

Gandra Dee, so Gizmo Duck has been building up his own personal villain set! I love that! He doesn't have to borrow from Darkwing's villains. Mark Beaks buffing up was weird cuz he's be more about building a better armor for an armor war. So what's up with the Powerball? Future use? I'm wildly disappointed by the change in Gandra Dee though. It was a 'nerd fantasy' but I loved that a tall supermodel with some tech skills was in a relationship with a bean counter like Fenton in the original series (she had tech skills. She was able to control that giant killer mantis robot in an ep). New Gandra with her photo eyes and nano shocker is a punk. A semi sweet punk but, eh, she's like Gizmo Duck's Splatter Phoenix and I'd rather have her for Darkwing.

Watched Negaduck before already.

Donald on the moon, wow the explanation at the end for his violence makes him almost edge Goofy out as the best dad material. Still a very silly ep with the Scorpion though, haha.

Birthday, I looooove Boyd! Hope he comes back! Love Huey with Della and powering up and actually into planting. But he really should have been gaming the game and wizarding his way through the levels instead of playing it safe.

Ok, I skipped the Magica and Coot EP cuz I wanted to see Bubba. Duck me, he was pretty cool as a prop but, er, he's a teen and not the same age as the nephews, boo. And he bonked Tootsie! That's bad! I did love the urgency when everybody was disappearing (scary) and Huey going on about Bubba was great! Buuuut it turned into another Louie thing and, blerg, I hate this selfish jerk. Focus on the better nephews!

Glomgold continues to be a shining beacon of hilarity! The way the heroes totally sidestep him with genuine fear for Magica was excellent. His Family scheme would have worked but he forgot a Donald/Della equivalent. Yeah. Thats it, thats the solution.

Timephoon had some absolutely gold character gags. Gyro is totally NOT building a clone army!

Just finished Glomtales, and well... I think its the first time I've really been let down I've been by an episode of the new series. The idea of Glomgold creating essentially a Legion of Doom of all the villains is something that feels like it should be epic, like even if Glomgold is incompetent, Ma, Magica, Don, aren't and Marks kinda isn't. But it gets resolved as quickly as it comes and it amounts to almost nothing. Yes, there is a cliffhanger but that's all Louie really. I was wanting more from this then they wanted to give it seems.

Well, all the villains minus Glomgold did retreat back aboard Karnage's ship as a group, rather than going their separate ways, so it's possible they could come back remaining as a group later on, with this just being their first outing together.

Saw the other two and finally caught up, woohoo!

Nightmare slumber party, nice dreams. I didn't watch High School Musical but I think that's what Dewey was going for with the basketballs? They missed a chance to have Louie look more like Fat Cat from Rescue Rangers. Unless he did and I didn't recognize him without the coat? Huey long legs, hahahahahaah! And Dewey freaking out over the visual, hahahaha! But I totally resent the fact that he saaaaays he has little imagination?! No way! Imagination is important to researchers and developers and, while I can't name stuff he's engineered, he's gotta have it is spades, c'mooooon. Season 3 better be a Huey season, yeah.

Oh and Magica looks pathetic being bereft of all magic, oh dear. Hope Lena pulls it together and finds her place in the show.

Coot, eh, that corn = gold has been done in MacGyver, Care Bears and I'm sure in other shows I can't remember. Bug Time was great though. Sad to know further proof that Launchpad doesn't even know anything about what he flies.

Glomtales, what that his takeover song? Haha. Yeah, his Legion of Doom was awesome and I hope it comes back, especially with Carnage and Magica and Beaks and Glomgold (ok, everybody except the Beagles). I love that Gyro is suppose to be part of Scrooge's family too, aaaw. Louie figuring out the angle was great but... I don't remember... how does he know that title bit again?

Richest Duck, how cool would it have been to have Gyro in his counsel too, demanding more funds for research. And Owlsen is the best and I hope she comes back. Hokey magic talk but whatevers, let's get back to Della and Donald.

That would be nice, and I could see the villains coordinating again - how many times did Magica work with the Beagle Boys in the original show, after all?

 

Trouble is that I don't see Don Karnage actively seeking outside aid to go after Dewey - he's got a crew, after all. The rest, though? Mark Beaks, maybe, Magica, definitely, and the Beagle Boys are legion...
