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?

@  Shrug : (12 September 2019 - 12:26 PM)

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

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

@  Bass X0 : (11 September 2019 - 07:43 AM)

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?

@  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

The same it usual, you know.

 

The funny thing is that I'll read something like that and mentally autocorrect and not even notice (as I did in this case), but if someone wrote "sametime" as a compound I'd not only notice it but spend fifteen minutes getting over my need to strangle them.

That actually makes sense because while reading the brain doesn't actually read all the words but rather recognizes the patterns and if it sees a pattern it thinks it recognizes it will automatically assume what it says. It is only until it notices a break in the pattern does it give it attention. Which is way grammar is the most overlooked spelling mistake.

Another interesting thing to note is that human brains have poorer number recognition then other prime apes. Like how many scattered dots on a picture they know the amount of before they have to start counting. Like they will flash you a card for a split second then ask you how many dots were on it. People usually lose count in upper single digits, which is crazy. But because our brains are better at recognize patterns, we can count to infinity.

Yeah, there's "apprehension" of number up to like five, and if you have time to see groups within the pattern you can rely on that and still be faster than actual "counting" (like the difference between reading the words above and sounding out.) And chimps are spooky fast at pattern recognition, counting, etc.

I, Lesbian

 
So in this version Will Smith is a woman who falls in love with a robot?

now this is the i, robot film adaptation i'm here for >=D

 

 

Mmmhmm oh yes let's explore that thank you. Forget the revolution angle that other movies fixate on, let's go way past that. Machines deem humans too irrational and dangerous to our own continuance and prosperity because duh, and we go from there. So humans are placed in detention centers, it's a largely benevolent takeover but freedom is gone-zo. That's where the movie starts. Groups form to resist and go into hiding, one woman with her [utility model ooooor lovebot? now her protector] lady robot are caught in the middle. Misunderstood by both sides, on the run and only each other for...

 

(fast forwarding to the end)

 

... so then SHE is the one who teaches the robots about love. I've wanted this movie forever, someone make it for me.

It betrays my anime affinity that I read this and jumped straight to romcom a la Meet the Parents where the robot babe inexplicably smitten with our dopey but endearing human protagonist tries desperately over a weekend visit to prevent him embarrassing himself in front of her successful but conservative robot parents, while they try to hook her up with the dashing robot asshole pretty boy whose father owns the biggest server farm company in the country, and somehow the robot dog ends up getting exploded and there's a comic chase sequence in a shopping mall

Wasn't that like the plot to I, Robot? The robots there weren't evil, they weren't trying to kill anyone. The robots wanted to round up the humans so they couldn't hurt themselves. If the robots did win all it would have meant was a such safer and productive world with more restrictive rules and less freedom. The robots would have simply done all of our manual labor and still took care of us. I never understood the downside if those robots did take over the world.

 

Maybe if robots didn't turn their eyes red then people wouldn't have been scared of them? Blue eyes are way more trusting.
