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)

Probably not

@  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)

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

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

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 think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Literally from the TakaraTomy Unicron order page:

 

If Hasbro's crowdfunding project is not successful, the sale of this product will be canceled and the sales contract will be cancelled.

 

So for chrissakes, no, TakaraTomy will not be making Unicrons regardless.  That makes no sense, and people need to stop claiming otherwise.

There's a handful of people out there convinced the Takara release is happening no matter what and the backer system is just a Hasbro scheme.

 

yeah well there's a handful of people out there who think the moon isn't real

So for chrissakes, no, TakaraTomy will not be making Unicrons regardless.  That makes no sense, and people need to stop claiming otherwise.  

 

Further to that, BBTS explicitly states that their orders will contribute to the crowdfund, and that if that the initiative does not succeed, the orders will be cancelled and deposits will be refunded.  This is the same with all of the international sites offering similar deals.

 

8000 is the worldwide crowdfunding minimum goal.

Ok, then, NEW conspiracy theory:  Unicron already failed to get funded, so they got Galactus, gave him a LOT of plastic surgery, and ever since then he's been Unicron whenever they needed a photo.  Evidence of this can be found on the album covers he made with Primus and the Death Stars 1 and 2 before the band broke up.

I honestly think there is little chance of Unicron getting funded. Funding isn't even at 3000 yet, with only 18 days to go.

So just to clarify. From Taktom and Oz both, their numbers will be added to the USA numbers. Everything counts towards the 8k.

 

It makes sense then as to why Taktom's pre-orders end at 1300 on the 30th, as that's midnight Eastern time. Gives them the day to get it all processed and added to the count.

Sail barge got 5000 backers on pretty much the last day, after sitting on 3000 (2000 under the minimum) for the majority of the campaign time.

As far as everybody actually knows, yes.  All the non-US buyers and retailers look to be putting together the equivalent of bulk orders, which means they'll probably put it all in at the last minute to get the max number of buyers.

That number only counts people who pledged specifically through the Hasbro Pulse website.  There are joint crowdfunding arms from other countries and through intermediary retailers that are yet to be counted.  

 

And, yeah, the Barge didn't fund until the last minute either, when there was a surge towards the end.  (possibly also due to intermediary retailers submitting their numbers?)

Yeah, I've updated the front page article for better accuracy.

I forget, how many international channels are we aware of? There's TakaraTomy Mall for Japan, of course, an official Taobao listing for China, an Australian retailer... Somewhere (Hasbro Asia?) is taking bulk orders from retailers, IIRC? I suppose we don't know for sure if US sites like BBTS are using those kind of channels or if they're just using the crowdfund site?

#1. No, it is not going to get a massive surge when its only 1/3 of the way there.

#2 There is no way in hell that Hasbro is dropping this at this point. Way too much pride and pressure to let it go this far into development with all the attention it has received.

#3 Having the ability to add worldwide pre-orders does give them the ability to save face when this insanely expensive toy fails to get halfway to 8000 in the US. I will add that to the article. Thanks!
