I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

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.

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)

@  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.

Taking a break is sometimes the best thing you can do.

So I found that I missed a day on my spreadsheet in terms of calories, weight lifted and water drank plus I missed a zero (I put in 1300 instead of 13000 pounds lifted - huge difference!).

1/16: Upper body with my son. 200 reps + .18 walk after
Today: Lower body, 338 reps + .41 walk after
Total pounds lifted to date: 84,645
Move calories burned: 11,437
Water drank: 1,217 ounces

Miles: 61.92 + .18 + .41 = 62.51
Uppers: 2470 + 200 = 2670
Lowers: 868 + 338 = 1206
Core: 891

Yesterday I did a two mile run. Today, I shoveled snow for almost an hour. Yes, I set my watch to record the workout. There was sooooo much, and it was so deep. Full body workout for sure.

Aaand it turns out the runthru I did was just half the course. We had to do it twice. I wasn't prepared. I ended up finishing 5th or 4th. The guy who kept beating me for first place in the last two runs placed 3rd. Meaning two or three new competitors entered the age category who are serious, guh.

Dang it! But just means I have train harder for next year!

The pretty ok part of the race was the guy in front of me going jog, walk, jog, walk while I was doing a steady jog. There was a guy behind me who was doing a jog, walk, jog, walk too, this time, keeping pace with me.

About three blocks from the finish line, the guy behind me finally tries to pass me. I was like 'nooooo way!' and I ran in pace until I passed him and the guy in front on me. Two blocks away from the finish, I did a semi sprint (cuz it was a looong block). Didn't see the former guy in front but former guy behind me was suddenly behind me near the last block. A bit scary but I used the last of my wind to go full on and reach the finish line first.

I was still 5th (or 4th place, since the folks only kept track of the first three placers) but it was cool.

Man, is the strategy for winning short fun runs going to be 'stay in front or stay with one of two of the leaders in front, then just surge past on the final leg? '

Broke my back and froze my ass off shoveling snow. And I took my run this afternoon. Felt pretty good.

 

Edit: Okay, so first day back after illness and I nearly give myself an anxiety attack. I suddenly figured that 36 minutes for 3.5 miles is wrong cause I can WALK 4.5 kilometers in about 40 minutes. And I almost went nuts trying to find the damn manual to double check.

I have finally used my cross country skis. It is hard, and way different than downhill skis. I went through the park and down a little hill into a giant snowdrift, and was trapped for a few minutes. Powder is not my friend.

No, I've always pulled a 10 minute mile. I'm trying to build my endurance, so slower but no stopping at all. I don't want to run a marathon, I just don't want to jiggle when I brush my teeth. But suddenly the numbers didn't add up for me, and I couldn't remember what the manual said about the display.

First post of the year.  Had my flight at work doing PT after work. Some of it has been pretty easy, others have been harder.  For one, 6 rounds, run 400m, 20 reps of an exercise. (pushups, jumping jacks, squats, etc) 

 

Wife is in the hospital now getting induced so my second child, a girl, will be here by tomorrow hopefully.  No sleep tonight for me.

Stomach bug: check.

Toss and turned all night: check.

Cramped up all night: check.

Do I feel like working out today? Nope. Is it possible my 451 day streak will come to an end today?

At least I didnt break another streak: I havent puked since before my wife and I got married in 05. Thought last night might be the first but I held strong.

Alright, so I went outside at about 8.30 this morning, and wound up shoveling a massive lump of snow. We got twice what they said we would yesterday, followed by ice pellets, freezing rain and then regular rain, which is still happening. Just clearing the front of the driveway took an hour.

 

3/4's of the way through that, my mother calls: the church she works at is flooding. The company that has the contract for clearing the snow is doing a piss poor job (AGAIN!) so I go and spend two hours cutting a trench through half inch ice that's thirty feet long. THEN I get to clean out the room that was flooding, but it's not got any insulation OR heating, so I'm INSIDE shoveling wet snow.

 

Long story short: I got a nice whole body work out today, and hug the weather.
