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

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)

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

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

@  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?

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

Evidently, Emiliano Santalucia is the artist on the evergreen designs.


I'm surprised these were all by the same guy. Like, I noticed there's some attempt at unified aesthetic, but I assumed it could've been multiple artists going for a similar look.

So since I'm not sure this was ever resolved here...

The Happy Meal toys aren't Cyberverse. Not only does the promotional art use non-Cyberverse Bumblebee (compare with CV Bee) but an actual comparison with the McDonald's toy shows that it's based on the same evergreen-style art.

In particular notice the helmet's straight sides and horizontal bottom edge and the fact that his nose is an unbroken yellow extension of his helmet rather than a separate nose piece.


Anyone here collecting McDonald's toys? I do not visit there much anymore.

I only got around to playing with Authentics Grimlock and I'm surprised that I like his bot mode a lot (usually I'm all about the dino mode).

How long will the Authentics or evergreen line continue? They're not going to keep releasing a new Prime, Bee or Megatron each time, will they? I really want a smaller pocket Scout version of this Grimlock to toss around.

Evergreen/Authentics stuff is taking the place of Legends/Legions in markets like Dollar General, which means they have a super slow release schedule (like a two to four new figures in a year maybe), but refresh the same figure cases over and over.  It continues until Dollar General or others stop buying, probably.

Well, as long as they make the smaller Scout line, I'm happy. But then I'm really happy with the deluxe Grimlock so maybe more of that too.

I'm very glad Emilio Santalucia is getting toy work. I actually didn't like his artwork in the cancelled He-Man comics. I didn't know he worked in the toy industry tho, much less Transformers.

He's worked on just about everything Transformers since circa 2012-13 Generations, I think.  He did at least early design work for Generations Metroplex, for instance.

There is a new "Bravo" (the smaller pice point) Grimlock out in Hong Kong:

It pretty much transforms like Gen1 Grimlock... but has no dino arms, and the dino head needs to be attached when first removing from packaging.

Bravo line? Isn't that just the 'deluxe' sized Grimlock?

If they made a smaller 'basic' sized one like they did with just Bee, Prime, Megatron and Scream, I'd totally grab it! I rather like the deluxe sized authentication Grimlock. Would like a pocket sized version of him.

There's two Authentics assortments - the five-inch Bravo assortment and the seven-inch Alpha assortment. The original Authentics Grimlock, as shown in that video, was from the larger Alpha assortment, this new one that Nevermore posted is from the smaller Bravo assortment.
