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

@  Telly : (13 September 2019 - 11:10 AM)

thats more than i look at on reddit

@  Benbot : (13 September 2019 - 10:49 AM)

am I a basic bitch for only browsing the front page of Reddit?

@  Shrug : (12 September 2019 - 12:26 PM)

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

@  Anonymous X : (12 September 2019 - 11:11 AM)

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)

Like many Gamecube games, underrated

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

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?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

fun and games

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  MEDdMI : (08 September 2019 - 08:23 AM)

But did you feed any small fuzzy creatures after midnight?

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 06:32 AM)

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

@  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)

*just stares*

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 04:27 AM)

My french is rusty but I'd guess Italienne-americain pain du sauce

@  Nevermore : (07 September 2019 - 02:58 AM)

What do they want "pizza" to be called? Crpes superior?

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

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

@  PlutoniumBoss : (06 September 2019 - 10:31 PM)

Not even Quebec likes Quebec?

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 September 2019 - 08:51 PM)

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

@  Ashley : (06 September 2019 - 07:48 PM)

Those weird language laws are basically anti-everyone. Who does it help to stop certain toys from being sold there?

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 September 2019 - 04:56 PM)

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

What are the highest and lowest recorded temperatures in your geographical region?

 

Do you own a cat?

 

What's your favorite science fact?


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Edit: Dammit!

I don't know the exact milligrams because it came from a local area coffeeshop but "enough that you feel like you're vibrating and/or disconnected from your body". Which, when I was more actively consuming it on a daily basis, too much then was like, close to 500mg in the span of a couple hours. (I had taken some excedrin for a headache on waking up and gotten a couple of bottled dunkin donuts coffees on the way to work and underestimated their caffeine content because they were small. I was a fool, and they clocked in at just shy of 200mg a pop.)

As a matter of fact, yes, just a few hours ago:

 

 

 

What are the highest and lowest recorded temperatures in your geographical region?

 

Do you own a cat?

 

What's your favorite science fact?

 

Temperature records took a bit of homework, or I'm just not using useful search terms. For my town, the highs are 106°F/41°C and the lows are -14°F/-25°C. I expected the highs to be higher, but I'm probably remembering heat indexes more.

 

I do not, but I wish I did. Cat allergies are an awful curse. :(

 

Just the existence of the triple point as a concept! (So much so that I made an OC around it, whoops.)

Oh my gosh someone needs to pick that up and get it made, now. = o

 

I'm sorry my silly question made you work, but I'm impressed that you answered it. X ] We were having this odd conversation in the Mayhem Discord server between three of us about our local climates, with three of us living in widely to narrowly ranging places and me in the middle with almost the exact spread you got. = ] 

 

Sorry about the allergies!

 

Nice pick! = D Wild what can happen outside of our familiar regimes....

It wasn't bad work, I was just mostly puzzled by the fact that the almanac sites that were coming up didn't list highest and lowest of all time, just had the highest and lowest for each month. I guess that's something more-requested, though!

 

The allergies suck, but aren't enough to deter me when I visit a friend who has a cat. I just wouldn't want to live with that, for the most part.

okay that's fair... thanks for answering my questions - I remember I need to keep my hugs to myself though so no worries this time 

Okay, do you want a cookie or something...? Making a big deal about "look how much I respected this boundary you set up" really isn't a good look, my dude.

I think he's just trying to be cute. It's still the same "I remember your thing and am controlling my usual impulse" message, but I think the emphasis is on "I remember your thing" and "I have huggy feelings". The other thing is at least as nuanced as not saying it would be, and Destron kinda doesn't that. = .

Pardon me if I don't find it cute when someone makes a show of learning some people don't like unsolicited hugs at 37 goddamn years old. If you do something that bothers someone and they call that out, you apologize at the time, quit doing the thing and move on. Pointing out how you didn't do the thing like that is some elementary school shit.
