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)

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)

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)

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

I figure these ought to go in their own thread.

 

My attempt at organizing those funky little badges on the Siege toys using the official webpage's rather scant info:

BU0OHEZ.jpg

aRuzYuD.jpg

 

As I don't have any real interest in collecting this line (apart from Brunt), any help would be greatly appreciated. Especially with the little 2-pack guys since the packaging tends to obscure the badges.

 

 

Should be fun to see this fill out over the rest of the WfC trilogy... or to see if it grows out of control as more and more units and divisions are arbitrarily added.

Hypothesis: Soundwave and co. are something like 'Recon', and the Race Car Patrol's unique symbol is the Autobot equivalent.

I'd guess "Espionage" for Soundwave and Ravage just because of who they are.


-ZacWilliam, Honestly if I was designing the army I'd make an Operations segment of which Communications, Recon and Espionage were separate related sub-divisions probably but...

Copy-pasting for whenever I update this again:

 

Also, Red Heat and Stakeout seem to be Infantry Privates.

 

 

And since this is semi-related:

 

attachicon.gifIMG_6781.JPG

So having figured this badge nonsense out, I have some thoughts about this:
- top is Optimus
- below him is probably Stepper
- next to that, with the sword and fancy lines, is Megatron
- sword with jet wings is likely Redwing (Screamer has Sword+Wings but higher rank)
- then it's Swoop, with the little jet wing and Spec Op clawmarks (which sorta seems to means "combiner", though by this logic Stepper should have the same)
- bottom is, er, some flying Decepticon? Possibly with a Weaponizer gimmick (Sixgun repaint? Although Sixgun himself isn't "Artillery")


Cybertronian writting is OBEY, FREEDOM, and... VOLT?

 

 

EDIT:
I dunno how useful these will be, but:

Even more badges hiding in that Selects box. Another mid-rank Infantry bot, and someone who apparently likes snow... or is a Chaos Worshiper.

Sorry about that. I'll admit they weren't super clean to begin with, though it looks like Imgur made it even worse when clicking that Save Image link...

Or rather, I'm now noticing his rank symbol is less complex than Soundwave and Shockwave's. Presumably Screamer's the equivalent rank as Ironhide.

EDIT: SS and IH are both ranked Captain
Star's Division is indeed Air Force
Soundwave's Unit is Espionage
 

EDIT 2: First post updated

 

 

 
Also, let me try retry doing PNGs for some of these things since the official site's got decent pics up.

Still more badges hidden in the flaps of that Selects box:
- our first look at a Decepticon "sergeant" (possible seeker)
- a second 'Con General -- presumably another Megatron, who may or may not be in a different division
- another Autobot Infantry/Ground Command Private

...er I mean, I guess that symbol means, er, "Security" or something?

 

 

(also, Reflector is in the Espionage Unit and Brunt is "Maybe Artillery")

I don't know if you've been paying attention to TCG stuff, but Wave 3 is a Siege tie-in and every character has a rank appended to their name. Maybe that can help with this stuff?

Red Alert's card says he's a medic rather than Security Chief and that top part of his symbol kinda looks like the Star of Life, so maybe that's supposed to be a medical thing?

I'm completely out of the loop on the card game. Maybe I should look into it since Red Alert is indeed in the Medical Unit:

And confirmation on some of the other group names, too. A bit of an error with Galaxy Upgrade Prime, though; his badge here has the Special Ops top even though the bio and actual toy packaging says otherwise.
