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?

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

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)

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

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

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

Sounds like your computer's on its last lags, Wonko

@  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

Heard a joke once: Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Says life seems harsh and cruel. Says he feels all alone in a threatening world where what lies ahead is vague and uncertain. Doctor says, "Treatment is simple. The great clown Pagliacci is in town tonight. Go and see him. That should pick you up." Man bursts into tears. Says, "But doctor...I am Pagliacci."

Yeah, totally agree since Cameron Monaghan has been able to show multiple versions of the Joker very well.

 

Recent Gotham trailer we just got Monday has me way more excited then this for sure.

I thought that this was pretty neat. I want to see more on this, to see where it it going. Is it going to be a long transformation across the film or is it going to actually show him as Joker doing his thing and his first run into batman?

This is set in the early 80s, so Bruce is still a kid and Thomas Wayne is featured.  I want to write this off on concept...but I'll be dipped if it doesn't look like a compelling film in its own right.

 

Again, DC has played with the idea of multiple Jokers, so maybe this is setting up a "legacy" that Batman, theoretically, could address later on?

Looks interesting, a more psychological take. I hope they don't make him too sympathetic, and go more for "all this bad stuff happened but that doesn't excuse what he does". We'll see.

Leaning a bit too hard into the Scorsese/"Taxi Driver" inspiration, isn't it?

 

Still, this looks more interesting than everything else DC is putting out.


Yep.

Having watched the trailer, I'm not impressed, the guy playing the Joker, just seems to lack a sense of charm that been present in the other verisons of Joker put to screen, I'll pass on this in cinemas at least. The main reason the Joker works so well is when he pitted against Batman, but I feel this is just a unneeded movie with a rather dull actor taking the role, besides we got a desent origin story for the Joker forming in Gotham (TV series) and the actors in that have been pretty good.

1) Gotham is beautiful garbage. It's a show that is objectively bad by almost every metric yet I'll still miss it when it ends.

 

2) We didn't t get a lot (any?) of Joker/Joker in the trailer so it's not really fair to judge it against performances that it is not.

My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure what yo make of it now. Except that i agree that i hope they don't make him sad and lonely and stuck in a dark world that makes his insanity somehow a sympathetic thing.

Well, er, the Scorcese and Fellini influences are interesting, at least.  I'm pretty anti-having-a-sympathetic-Joker, though, so he better be pretty damn deranged by the second or third act of this thing.

I've been 100% onboard with this film ever since the Makeup test.

 

 

 

For me, the trailer was less "Taxi Driver" and more "Falling Down". There's an old saw of the Internet that as a kid you idolize Batman but as an adult you realize Joker makes more sense. I think that's pretty much the driving premise of the film.

 

EDIT: Second viewing, I catch the fact he's taking care of his mother who likely has Alzhemiers/Dementia. I figured out how they're going to turn the audience against him in the climax. Just like when Rob Zombie had Mike Meyers murder Danny Trejo....
