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...

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 would love to have a DS9 film, but the series kind of tied itself up rather nicely. I guess you could have Sisko return but that is about it. Besides, it is far too late for any of those characters to return for their own series. It would be neat though if we could get several of them in a film with some of the TNG and Voyager cast with some new characters.  Maybe we will get something like that for the Picard series.

Something deep down tells me the Enterprise D will still be around in his new series.

Cant decide if removing the TNG films from canon is good or bad.

Good. No hesitation, Good.

 

I love TNG as a show, but my movie collection goes Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and then Star Trek 2009. The TNG garbage is exactly that - garbage. The best one of the batch only gets worse with age and the most glowing recommendation about it is "It feels like a two part episode". From early season 3.

FC or INS?

Because I think INS is definitely a tv show expanded into a movie. But Ive never thought of it as the best.

I think that it will be the Enterprise E that will be in the new series if the Enterprise is there at all. Considering that they would have to rebuild the Enterprise D sets, and how horrible that they look in Generations, I think that will be a good thing.Plus the E will be 25 years old at that point, so we might not even see her. As iconic as the D is is, you guys might just end up getting the F.

 

 

That sounds bad when I put it that way though......

For once I would like to see an Enterprise stick around for a while.  Aside from the original 1701, were ANY of them in service for more than 20 years?  According to the TNG Technical Manual, the Galaxy Class spaceframe had a lifespan of 100 years.  I assume most Starfleet ships have the potential to keep running for that long.  I would like to see a major Enterprise E refit, but I'll be very disappointed if it has been supplanted already.  If they decide to bump the Picard series 25 additional years into the future, I might be more accepting of a new ship, but I'm assuming they will continue the one year real time = one year fiction time that we've seen throughout the TNG era. I want a legendary Enterprise that's been in service for half a century, not one that's replaced as frequently as an iPhone.

*sigh* Enterprise tried too hard to be too advanced too early.

 

To be fair, I thought Enterprise tried really hard to be more primitive than TOS. They were careful on what was referenced when, the Ferengi were never named as such and the First Contact tie in Borg Episode was a surprisingly well done "In The Mountains of Madness" homage.

 

Enterprise struggled, no doubt (And the Suliban and attack on Earth were about as subtle to post-9/11 America as a sledgehammer to the face, come on guys), but it at least failed by virtue of trying. As opposed to say Voyager, that failed and never tried.

As I remember it, the A was retired because it really was a electronic crapshow (As seen in Star Trek V) and the Constitution Class was already headed for the breakers when Kirk and Company saved Earth in IV and was given as a token of appreciation. Really, the A was the ship that should not have been.

 

B never got over the whole "Killed James T. Kirk, Savior of Earth and the Federation" on its maiden run.

 

C was forcibly "retired" by Romulans while protecting a Klingon colony.

 

D was built with balsa wood and duct tape and was apparently such a Engineering nightmare that they went through a dozen Chief Engineers before they finally had to solve the issue by putting the blind guy in charge. But he couldn't sneeze over in this one corner, or else the Warp Core would automatically breech.

 

E is...still around, last I knew?

I have no idea at all why you would fear they'd use the D or remove the TNG films from canon.  No idea whatsoever.

 

 

I think that it will be the Enterprise E that will be in the new series if the Enterprise is there at all. Considering that they would have to rebuild the Enterprise D sets, and how horrible that they look in Generations, I think that will be a good thing.Plus the E will be 25 years old at that point, so we might not even see her. As iconic as the D is is, you guys might just end up getting the F.

 

 

That sounds bad when I put it that way though......

 

It would be really weird if it turned out that Captain Picard gets to stay a Captain for as long as he will and they'll keep giving him a new Enterprise whenever he needs one.  I think it was probably a mistake not to give his Sovereign a different name, but if something happened to it and they give him an F, they all deserve to be flunked.  That's just a weird idea.

 

I am eager to hear what the premise of the new show is.  It's a week or so on and no one else has announced that they are coming back.  Is he the main character?  A cameo?  A supporting role?  He might be someone's mentor or he might be an ambassador travelling aboard someone else's ship.  If he really is just the Captain of the Enterprise-F with Worf and Crusher and Geordi and Guinan and Madden along for the ride...I would watch it of course.  But that's kinda boring.
