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

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...

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.

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

Just saying I'm 149.6lbs so just gotta lose 3lbs to get back to what I was earlier this week.

Also, there's intermittent fasting timing apps! I should try it.

One arm push ups! Nice! With baby!
I could do like... three a few years ago, haha

Baby? More like almost 8 year old! But the one handed ones were without her, it was regular pushups where I added her weight.

 

As far as weight is concerned, just wanted to encourage you. I hit a new low of 213.65 earlier this week, but added 2 pounds between Thursday and Friday's dinners (my in laws gave us some money so we could have a night out, and I enjoyed every bite of it!). I understand exactly what you feel, since I'm now 2 more pounds further from my 185 goal weight, but I think fluctuations of 2-3 pounds in a given week are healthy. I get it though...once I'm at 185, I'll freak out the first time I hit 190 again.

 

Yesterday, was core. Today, during a trip to Aldi I ran across a 12 pound vest for only $8.99. I wore it while doing an indoor run tonight. Believe it or not, I hit a new pace for the new year: 9:30 per mile. It was challenging, and I expect to be up tomorrow with water retention even more (since my muscles will be in repair overdrive now), but it was worth it. Hoping this makes me faster.

 

Miles: 136.44 + 2.2 = 138.64
Uppers: 8319
Lowers: 3390
Core: 2497 + 260 = 2757

Today, I hit a new weight low since at least 2010, maybe 2009. 212.53! I was so positive I would be up today, since my wife made an amazing potato soup last night and I went back twice for another serving. So I was super surprised to be down, I even checked it again just to be sure.

 

Today, I did a full body workout. Low reps, since I walked/stretched a lot in between. But something different. I wore the 12 pound weight vest the entire time, and I could tell it midway through too.

 

Miles: 54.79
Uppers: 9044 + 20 = 9064
Lowers: 3984 + 21 = 4005
Core: 2820 + 11 = 2841

 

I also did 5 burpees. I don't know where to put them, since they work the entire body in 1 rep. Thoughts?

Burpees have push up for 'upper' and squats for 'lower'. Does it do 'core'? Cuz, I swear, I will do burpees to add to our list if core is included.

"Getting up in the morning" is getting to be workout enough. 

 

I don't know what it is, but since last summer something's been causing the family cat to just freak out at night when everyone's trying to sleep. About the only thing that'll settle him down is if I get him and hold him like an infant while I'm seated. I can be doing this for as much as four hours straight, and that stresses my spine. 

 

I've found that if I sit in the padded chair in the family office after I wake up and recline it a bit, it helps my back significantly. Problem is, that same cat takes the sound of me sitting in the chair as some sort of invitation to play. He wants me to get up and play with him, with "play" being "chase him around the house. 

 

If I don't chase him, he'll rip something up in protest. The relatives I live with spoiled him to the extent that he's used to getting what he wants, and he gets destructive when that doesn't happen. 

 

The up and down as I get up to try and stop him from destroying things, sit back down, and then have to get up again is stressing things that much more. After about half an hour of this, I'm in enough pain that I have trouble walking. 

 

This usually ends with me having to spend the next hour in that chair dealing with things unless I want some Advil.

I reached 143.8lbs! Just 4 more lbs and I'll be at my goal! Then I'll start eating tuna for my protein and try to build muscle. Maybe pics when I'm at 140lbs.

The diet was just really me living alone and controlling my food. Yeeeeah, kinda not eating full meals sometimes.

I know it's bad, yikes. But I'll regulate once I'm at my target weight of 140lbs.

Between the cold my nephew gave me, and the weather spiking above zero © to cause thaws, I've been alternating between down and badly over exerting myself. There's been awful ice this year, and three times in the last two weeks I've had to go clear the shit out which is god awful back breaking work. Two hours of it on friday wound up not only making my back feel like it was broken, but managed to give me a migraine on top of it.

 

But still: felt well enough to take my run today. So, back into the swing of things!
