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?

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

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

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.

@  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

I was finding the firecracker ones but never Syrup and waffles. Until today when I made an early run for biscuits and found my local Acme fully stocked.

the key lime pie so far has been my fave of all the flavors. some of them, like the chocolate strawberry, are....I dunno....kinda too sweet. Liked the peep ones, but I could only eat one at a time.

 

Also, there used to be a knock-off oreo in Wal-marts stores that had poprocks in them. they only cost 89 cents. I miss them immensely...mostly just for the price.

Never been a big Oreo eater.  I've had Classic, Double-Stuff, and Mint before.  But I had no idea so many other flavors were out in the wild.  Just never really looked.  May have had lemon, but that might have been an off brand.

 

I did find a bag of Oreo Thins with Coconut filling at Albertsons.  Tasty, but rather odd having them so thin.

This morning on Kathy Lee and Hoda, they had exclusive Oreos (chocolate cherry truffle and vanilla peach) made to pair with red and white wine. Made just for the show. Not for sale.

Local Walmart finally had the Jelly Donut flavor. The jelly filling flavor overpowers but it's still pretty good.

As has been said, the Oreo Thins also have coconut with chocolate cookie and salted caramel with the white. Coconut is pretty good but I didn't much care for the salted caramel.

I advise making dirt.... cream cheese and powdered sugar , vanilla pudding and whipped cream  (think cheesecake)  layered with crushed oreos.  Usually found under the name "Heavenly Dirt" as far as recipes go.    :love

I'm loving the Salted Caramel Thins, but I'm a Caramel fiend. Saw the Jelly Donut ones here but just didn't feel like picking it up. Seems like it would just be a golden  with a berry flavor in the middle, and despite loving the Salted Caramel, Goldens aren't usually my thing.

 

Now if you haven't picked up one of the Oreo Candy Bars then you are missing out. Rich Belgian chocolate over a creamy filling with chocolate cookie bits. MMMMM!

Both the Blueberry Pie and Key Lime Pie Oreos have been reissued.

They're both really good from what I recall with the Key Lime being the best.

Blueberry is apparently grocery store exclusive while the Key Lime *might* be Meijer exclusive but I'm not 100% sure.

I don't think we have a trader joes in a hundred miles radius...which is funny because this while towns become so damn yuppie you'd think we'd have a few more "upscale" choices when it comes to supermarkets (we only have a price chopper and a shoprite....though there is an ACME one town over....but they wont ever sell me rocket power'd roller skates, iron birdseed, and a giant magnet)

When you live in an area where they don't sell Key Lime Pie oreos, you have family that does live in the area that does sell them, you reach out. Apparently. Still love golden birthday cake better.

I'm not sure if it was supposed to replace them, but I find that the Apple Pie Oreos are much better than the Pumpkin Spice from last year.

 

I was also impressed that I was still able to find the Fireworks ones. My daughter absolutely loves them!


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!
