Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

I managed to find about 2/3s of my goal Sega Genesis collection before the last price bump

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 - 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)

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 01:11 AM)

Are they still suing Italian restaurants for having food that's insufficiently French?

Quebec's a special case; they just have an insatiable lust for hate

Oh look its the concept from early versions of TFA where Rey and the other scavengers, were salvaging the second Death Star on a water planet.

 

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.

JJ said that you could tell a lot about the story by looking at the "Art of The Force Awakens" book. I was hoping it would draw inspiration from those sunken Death Star images and it looks like it is!


Yep.

So is Skywalker the term for a force user who is neither Jedi nor Sith going forward?

Huh the Knights of Ren, can't even make it through the trailer alive. Maybe that dark,stormy place was Ren.


I was wondering if that was one of them. I don't believe it is, but I am obviously not the only one to think that at first.

Not impressed by the title, it feels rather misleading considering the fact Ren is not a Skywalker as such and Rey isn't said to be a Skywalker, or did Luke quietly have a child somewhere else who going to swoop in and save the day? I was thinking the title might be better off with "Child of the Force of Children of the Force!" The trailer its self, ok, I guess but I still got the bad feeling about this movie having to work hard to answer all of the mystery boxes JJ setup and it will pretty much bring the movie down!

 

See, this is want a bunch of us wanted. The legacy is respected but this is Rey and co's story.

Why was that so hard for Johnson?

 

He a idiot, what do you expect? Its been confirmed whatever plan JJ setup went out the window for Last Jedi, so I think this trilogy will go down as a text book example of mismangement from start to finish, but hey, Lando back (will he die in this movie?)

I was going to avoid everything Star Wars because the series has been mishandled so badly, but fine, you've convinced me to watch the trailer.  I'll check it out when I get home.

Abrams sure does love those low flying fighter shots.  I'm, uh, not complaining or anything. 

 

VERY interested in the end. Mostly for Walky's reaction, but, you know, also for how that's going to work.

You don't know WHAT the title refers to yet. No one does. So you can't say it's misleading yet.

Quit griping and let the rest of us enjoy this.

Bringing back the Emperor after redoing/undoing the OT and applauding TLJ for "allowing SW to go anywhere now" sure would be a sight to see.

On the other hand, old Sheev is one of my favorite characters and Ian's still around, so hug it why not?

Disappointed that after TLJ cast us into unknown waters, narrative wise, JJ is bodily dragging the franchise back into familiar and oft retreaded territory.

 

That said, I know that laugh. And he effectively carried an entire trilogy on the back of his performance. I'm not going to pretend seeing him again is a disappointment. And then there's Lando, and they got at least one scene with Carrie Fischer in the film.

 

Alright Abrams. Let's see what you have in mind.

Nothing here that's changed any of my thoughts on what's come before or is yet to come, but it certainly has my curiosity at least. It sure does flirt with the idea that it could go in a similar direction to TFA and open itself to criticisms of being an OT retread. Plenty of interesting tidbits though, and the title definitely has me wondering.

 

I think my favorite part of it is that brief shot of Lando. Every time I've seen Billy Dee Williams in recent years, he's seemed to be in very poor health. I really wondered what sort of presence he might have on screen. At least in that shot though, he's just so vibrant and alive! I hope to see more of that.
