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

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

Spring is here and I have been super busy. The tight pants I had over the winter, now fit. I was always put on 10 to 15 lbs over the winter, then lose it in the spring, but every year gets a little harder.

Everyone puts on weight in north american winters. Especially in the northern hemisphere. The powerful cold and wanton precipitation makes it hard to maintain good habits, and the sudden added difficulty to doing everything, and lack of sunlight makes it's really easy to want to over indulge in comfort foods.

I went and bought myself a new bike today. Canadian tire is having it's spring sale so last years models are hitting the floor at half off. I got a nice CCM with a full shimano shifter derailer set, dual disc brakes and front and rear suspension for less than 400. I need to put my old seat and hybrid tires on it, but other than getting some air in the tubes: it's ready to roll right now.

Alright, so I had time this afternoon: I brought the new bike into the shop and got to work! I needed to change the tires for my older hybrids (less than 2 years old.) change the seat (old one is bigger... and I got a fat ass.), adjust the handle bars, put my lock and mud guard on it, and inflate the tires.

 

So I start on the hardest part: flip the bikes over, and get to work on the tires. I got all the way through it when I realized that the new rims support 2.10 and the old are 1.75. Oh... well I don't wanna hug up the new rims, so: switch em back. Not a big loss: about 50 bucks for the hybrid wheels. Okay, whatever.  Switch 'em back. Take the mudguard off, take the lock off, go to install the mudguard... can't find the bolt. Spend 15 minutes crawling around with the most powerful flashlight we had and a magnet on a stick trying desperately to find the bolt. NOPE! Break out the bottles and spend another 10 minutes finding a bolt that work, go back to installing only to discover the old bolt never hit the floor, it was still in the housing on the mudguard. Managed to adjust the seat properly, but couldn't switch them as CCM uses a different pipe. So I stole the gel seat off the ridge runner which is heading out to a garage sale tomorrow. Last thing is adjust the handle bars. Should be easy, they need to go less than half an inch up. I get it mostly taken apart to discover that there's no room left on the fork. It can't be adjusted up or down.

 

So long story short: It took me an hour and a half and hug ton of sweat to install a lock, a mudguard, adjust a seat and inflate the tires.

 

Yeah, been that kind of day.

So I'm well over a month behind on stats. Got a lot to add...

 

Miles: 313.3 + 3.11 + 1.55 + 2.84 + 4.51 + 1.02 = 326.33
Uppers: 19,500 + 230 + 250 + 200 + 200 + 200 + 200 + 180 + 200 + 240 + 195 + 180  + 195 + 400 = 22,370
Lowers: 10,600 + 125 + 225 + 260 + 223 + 200 = 11,633
Core: 6,817 + 123 + 31 + 201 + 183 + 6 + 201 = 7,562

 

Some other stats I track:

Miles ran:  27.56

Move calories burned through yesterday: 71,217

Total ounces drank through yesterday: 7,627

Total weight lifted through today: 424,718 pounds (very proud of this stat)

Days in a row exercising: 533 (ditto)

 

Also, yesterday's chest-only day was a workout record: 400 chest reps (combination of flat bench press, incline bench, decline bench, and butterflies). 21,250 total pounds in just one workout. I was in pure beast mode!

Went out to White Sands National Monument today for Earth Day and took a walk with my son.  Been doing a lot of pushups and situps to get ready for my PT test.  My plan is to go for a run Tuesday morning, but we shall see.  I gotta get to the post office and mail out some transformers Ive been selling on ebay.  Decided it was time to pass my joy onto somebody else.  They have been in storage boxes for the last 2 years. There is a link in BST if anybody is looking to buy anything.
