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

@  Bass X0 : (11 September 2019 - 07:43 AM)

I used a double dash on my mobile. The chat didn’t like it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 September 2019 - 04:10 AM)

what's with that punctuation anyway

@  Nevermore : (11 September 2019 - 03:20 AM)

Now where did that come from, Bass X0?

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)

@  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)

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)

*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

Kefka.

 

He was a whiny, irritating twit. The entire game I kept thinking: "Okay he's going to die early then we can get the real villain" But no. He IS the villain.

 

I had to put up with him the entire game, and he's the entire reason I've never touched Final Fantasy 3/6 ever again.

 

I hate his stupid laugh, I hate his self imposed crybaby attitude, I hate that he gets credit for something he didn't actually do. ("But he destroyed the world!" Oh really? You mean the world you still spend the rest of the game on? The one that can still apparently support life as there are things still LIVING on it? That world? Go watch DBZ and see Kid Buu destroy the earth. THAT is destroy.)

 

I LOATH HIM.

NuBSG was a joyless experience with a brilliant cast and a story literally written by the seat of the writers' pants. Where major, game changing plot beats are chosen OUT OF A LITERAL HAT.

This smug bastard from Fang of the Sun, Dougram: Helmut Lecoque. He's probably personally responsable for at least some of the worst stuff from that show, yet he's totally believable as a person and character.  He also has a very punchable face.

Hate is a really strong word. Not sure I feel that strongly against any fictional character.

As a kid I really disliked the "Hero Jerk" archetype in 80s Cartoons. So The Paladin from the DND toon, Lance from Voltron and Slingshot from TFs we're some of my least liked characters. Really disliked Beachead and Sgt Slaughter from G.I. Joe.

-ZacWilliam, other than that the closest that comes to mind are the three main characters from The Last Summer a book we read senior year of high school. Don't go look it up. It also has the record of being the only book I've ever sworn at and thrown across a room.
Ever wonder about the speed of Turbofoxes?
Or the proverbial ailerons of Titanium Moosebots?

Victor and Monty from Power Rangers Ninja Steel.  Several episodes centered around their farts...I don't think I have to go into any more detail, do I?.

 

Super Duck, from Archie Comics.  A poor man's Donald Duck impersonator.  And yet, for some reason, Archie comics seems proud of having published this character, since reprints still crop up in the Best of Archie Comics collections.  The artwork is terrible, the character forgettable, and...I just don't understand who over in Archie Comics loves this Cock-eyed little nothing of a character so much that he seems to pop up from time to time.  Archie is just so PROUD of ripping off Donald Duck and getting away with it, it makes me hate the character.

 

But most of all, and probably most inexplicably...the Silver Millennium Crystal from Sailor Moon.  Now, this isn't technically a character, but...I'm counting it anyway and you can't stop me.   :p   It is the laziest and cheapest deus ex machina of all time.  What do all the heroes want?  What do all the villains want?  What is the solution to and the source of every single problem in the Sailor Moon manga?  This crystal!  Now, this is mostly me ranting about the manga, rather than the 90s cartoon.  In the 90s cartoon, I feel like the monsters of the week actually help give Sailor Moon a little variety.  But in the manga....my goodness, none of the villains have much of a personality...they are pretty boring.  The only thing they do have?  A desire for this crystal.  I just got sick of hearing about it every page.  I have to wonder why they just didn't chuck the thing into the Sun, since the only reason most of these villains are even attacking Earth is because they want the crystal.  No crystal, no problems!  I was actually excited about the evil alien Circus arc, because at least they had a different motivation from every other villain in the manga...up until they hear about the Crystal and decide "Oh, yeah, we gotta get that!"

 

I have never hated a fictional, voiceless, inanimate object as much as I hate this crystal.  To be fair, there is a reason why all these villains had the same desire, and I do feel like the Sailor Moon manga steadily improves as it goes along its 10 volumes, but...bleh on weak motivations for forgettable villains.
