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

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

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.

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.

I finished the series (finally) and made a review of each episode. Haven't done an overall thoughts but have to say it's s pretty great take on She-Ra. Not perfectly executed but really good.

My fave ep should have been the Princess Prom buuuut the No Princess Left Behind had the actual showcasing of the Princesses of Power with Sea Hawk in tow, haha. Plus the ending cliffhanger where Entrapta DIES! Gasp! Loved it.



I haven't checked online for articles and stuff but :

- season 2 is sure, right?
- seriously, Sea Hawk? This doof grew on me but when will be turned super manly awesome and sweep Adora off her feet? Cuz he seems to be with Mermista and also used to date other Princesses? That salty sea dog!
- Netossa and Spinnerella are a couple? Netossa is voiced by the producer Noelle Stevenson? Is she lesbian too?
- Sweet Bee and Peekablue were named dropped to be dating as well.
- I LOVE it that Entrapta joined the Horde by accident. I didn't really know that she was originally Horde. So it was great when she defected, sorta. Scorpia needed a friend. Both are my favorite characters :)
- too much to get into on the relationship dynamic of Adora and Catra.
- Was Shadow Weaver called Light Spinner in the original show too?
- Kyle, Lonnie and the lizard man should have been homages. They're featured too much. Kyle could have been an awkward Kid-tenna for Mantenna. Lonnie could be a Leechette. Wasn't there a Lizardman villain in MOTU already? Anyway, wasted potential for homages on those three.

- the 13 Princesses don't work. I count
1. Angela - she was in the circle
2. Glimmer
3. Perfuma
4. Mermista
5. Frosta
6. Entrapta - Horde
7. Scorpia - Horde
8. Netossa
9. Spinnerella
--- name dropped at the Prom invites
10. Sweet Bee
11. Peekablue
12. Star Sisters
---
13. Castaspella - Mystacor has a rune stone
14. Princess with horns - in the circle.
15+. Adora mentioned other princesses at the Prom invite but I forgot their names.

So how does that go?

- toys! If they make Entrapta and Scorpia, I'm totally getting them! Entrapta better have prehensile hair and tiny food! Scorpia should have hugging action!

Its likely some of these princesses are related and their kingdoms united, prehaps the original intent was for 13 kingdoms but someone changed it along the way, yet nothing is prefect.

I mean, Angela and Glimmer are both visible in the hologram, suggesting that mother and daughter represent two different kingdoms.

(My going theory is that Glimmer's father was from a different kingdom, so Glimmer has inherited his genetic link to a rune stone distinct from her mother's link to Brightmoon.)

There's princesses without gems and gems without princesses.  Some of the princesses are purely political leaders, not related to the original gemholders.  For instance, Entrapta does not seem to be a gem-descended princess, and Scorp's family lost her gem.

From what I remember, the Black Garnet is Scorpia's gem.

I want EVERY Princess to have a Runestone! Entrapta would be unstoppable with one! Unstoppable!

Love the idea that Angela uses the Moonstone and Glimmer has a different one from King Micah's kingdom. A Sunrock maybe? Glimmer would be the child of night and day.

Doesn't Castaspella's big gem that shield's Mystacor count as her Runestone? And Perfuma's Hearts-seed-something?

The Black Garnet is Scorpia's (family's) gem, but she doesn't seem to have a connection to it, based on Entrapta's observations.

Though a Scorpia-shaped silhouette is visible in the princess lineup, so maybe she's still "logged in" as it were. Or maybe she has a twin sister who was only mentioned in Force Captain orientation.

I enjoyed Catra missing the orientation joke, while it lasted, hehe.

Light Hope didn't actually give a number for the princesses, right? The show can just mess about the number, which would be sloppy writing but could get us more princesses.

I watched the Adora Prom planning scene again and she only mentioned Sweet Bee, Peekablue and Star Sisters after all.

I saw the She-Ra catalogue before and there were... three Star Sisters?

I remember the original Flutterina episode but she wasn't a princess. Just a villager cleaning lady who was given powers because she died (?) helping She-Ra.

Original Catra's cat shifting mask belonged to a queen of cats. They might change it to Catra secretly being a kidnapped baby of a cat kingdom, making her a princess too. (Which would be an AMAZING storyline, if they go for it)

Uh, there's a toy of a lady named Double Trouble?

Who knows, Light Spinner might be a princess too.

Man, there should be a toyline for this. From googling, there's only She-Ra and Catra and that's a shame.

Given how long it takes to produce, I wonder if they were working almost on spec, hoping they got the official word.  Licensed stuff is always tricky, even if it's successful the licensor might decide to go in a different direction and cancel the show.

I think probably Netflix has the clout and the patience to buy a firm go ahead and then sit on a show in production for a long enough time to have a full run that they are sitting on for future releases.

-ZacWilliam, they certainly seem to sit on confirmed finished seasons of other shows for a decently long time before doing staggered partial releases.

I think its likely a fair chunk of the future seasons are in production while the upcoming season is likely in final stages, such as sound, music and having the voice tracks added on, I suspect future seasons are likely being animated currently or at least storyboarded, if they are going for a 52 ep count that is.
