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)

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?

@  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)

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

She's introduced as He-Man's long-lost brother and meets him for her introduction, but otherwise it's just this entire rebranded set of MotU things and no interaction with MotU.

 

Well I mean, we have gotten pretty progressive as of late, but somehow I don't think they are going to create a show with a crossdressing main character for this.

I think I originally phrased that the other way around and missed one of the substitutions inverting it.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Yeah, but that was anime only. They were always girls too. (EDIT: I mean they were originally girls and only became guys when they got to earth)

 

On the actual subject of this thread. I'm interested.

 

I remember when we had that He-Man reboot cartoon on CN a while back. I kept hoping She-Ra would be introduced, only to hear it might have been in the next season we never got as it go canceled. :/

I am curious as to whether any of the allusions to the He-man franchise will be there. Adora only became She-Ra thanks to Adam traveling to Etheria to give her the Sword of Protection for one. And her Transformation shout was "For the Honor of Greyskull" including Castle Greyskull in the background of the transformation.

There won't be such thing at all.

 


Is she pansexual?
 
None of that either.
 

And maybe they can actually use the swords as swords this time
 
There ain't gonna be blood baths if that's what you're hoping for.
 

Lot of awesome people in the cast. I hope they can manage something cool that can pull itself free of the shadow of He-Man.
 
But also has lots of He-Man? NO
 
At any rate... bring it on. They can save He-Man for the inevitable "MOTU: Go Roar".
 
You can thank MOTU and POP being under separate licenses for that.
It's so convoluted that they shouldn't even be able to use the Horde characters (apart from Catra and few others)... yet they are using them.

My expectation is that they will leave space in the origin for Eternia and Adam to be something that exist elsewhere but she has no knowledge of but nothing of that will be touched at all in season 1.

If the show is successful and goes on to a second or third season I can see them maybe eventually touching on it a little or even using it to backdoor a second MotU revival but I think that's very distant future speculation at this point.


-ZacWilliam, I think it'll be pretty interesting to see where a She-ra revival without He-man goes honestly.

Here's my guess (warning-geeky brainstorming coming):

They've designed the first couple seasons (26-39-ish) episodes around the idea of avoiding her full origin.  We might get something like she is a horde general only to get a magic sword from with a partial reveal of her origins (coming from Eternia, maybe parents named, maybe a Sorceress cameo) and lead into a multi-season battle agains the Horde building into a climax point with a big crossover with classic MOTU characters from Eternia.

 

The probable hope is that the He-Man/MOTU feature film stays on track for a late 2019 (or at least Spring 2020) release and they can coordinate the reveal of the character on the series with the release of the feature film (SYNERGY!).  And after seeing how Dreamworks and Netflix have distributed Voltron...that doesn't seem like an impossible task.

Yeah she was kidnapped as a baby. Raised by Hordak or someone in his service (don't remember if we got any details of that) and was an officer of the Horde before Adam showed up and She-Ra happened.

I havn't read them but I think the recent DC Comics played with her Horde identity in more detail.

-ZacWilliam, being raised as a villain her whole life was something the Cartoon completely dismissed and ignored as far as I can recall.

This new She-Ra will learn that it's not nice to cause trouble for the Evil Horde.

 

Never got a chance to watch the original series when I was a kid, it just wasn't anywhere on TV. I keep meaning to check it out streaming, but revisiting my childhood era cartoons has tended to not go well so far. Like He-Man.

 

I did love Secret of the Sword growing up, the film that introduced her. I watched the Hell out of that VHS. It's been a long time since I've seen the movie, but I suspect it holds up decently well. It was much more ambitious than the standard He-Man fare in its plot and themes (written by a couple of nobodies named Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward.)

 

The opening song is still great.

 

 

 

Hm, a young woman fighting in a rebellion against an oppressive regime run by an old (very) white guy?  Yeah, I can see that as appealing more to modern audiences than a dude defending the monarchy.

 

---Dave

 

White guy?

 

 

 

 

 

He was blue, like Skeletor. Sensing a pattern of He-Man and She-Ra just not liking blue people. Skeletor fought to end the tyranny of a white monarchy, and He-Man brought his colonialism to take down a blue ruler on Etheria. In fact, in Secret of the Sword he and his sister reinstalled a white monarchy that Hordak had liberated Bright Moon from.

 

You're spreading a suspiciously counter-revolutionary message.

The picture above makes me really hope they do something cool to Hordak's design. That high bone collar is just kinda dumb.

-ZacWilliam, he's always felt weirdly muddy as a design to me. Never liked him much. Nosferatu face, weird robot suggestions, weird collar, shape changing powers. I'm sure he could be great but It could use some reinvention to really gel I think.
