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

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.

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  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)

I googled it, and it doesn't seem like it's there. It's streaming on youtube, but not on disney plus right now.

 

Goof troop and the original ducktales are on disney plus, but it's pretty easy to see why.

On the actual source it's just one of several Disney Afternoon pictures they posted, without emphasizing any one particular title.

I'd still like to know what legacy stuff they'll have on the service.  Fox and Disney have ENORMOUS backlogs of stuff, and I'd like to know if Disney's old live action output from the 50-70s is going to be there.

It depends on mutable factors such as Smoking, being politically correct for today's era, suitable for children, after all they are trying to wrap everyone in balls of cotten wool or bubble wrap and try and hide the ugly truth, so you'll never see anything that doesn't conform to that standard such as stuff made for adults and have rude words or blood baths, in other words 18 plus stuff.

Perhaps not at launch, but we've been promised that practically everything will indeed be there (exceptions for things like Song of the South that Disney wants to forget was ever made).

 

EDIT after reading post above mine: They've also said nothing rated R or above.

Obviously nothing R-Rated.  They've already confirmed Hulu is going to be for the use of more mature stuff they don't want on the Disney+ service (like Ghost Rider).

 

I'm still holding hope that they Toei stuff Disney had produced makes it over.  Especially since both Disk Wars and Future Avengers had english dubs produced for southeast Asia.

I fear trying to get him to write in proper English is a losing battle. At this point, he's doing it deliberately.

 

Anyway, Gargoyles on Disney+ is awesome, but my question is, will it be how it originally aired back in the 90's, or will it be edited for content? The DVDs were mostly uncut, if memory serves, but there's no guarantee any release like this will follow suit.

I view it as unlikely that Disney will go to the money and effort to edit much on their service.  As is, I really don't think they'll put ANYTHING worth editing on there to begin with.  Aside from Song of the South, people have generally accepted that older films will have certain accommodations we wouldn't see today, and that's true of a TON of stuff produced prior to the mid-90s or so.  People aren't going to stop watching the original "Miracle on 34th Street" just because it portrays people smoking.

The original DuckTales had some of its episodes edited when they reran on Toon Disney (e.g. - an explosion scene was taken out of one episode, a shot of Ma Beagle and the Beagle Boys holding a radio host at gunpoint was cut out in another, etc.), and IIRC these edited versions were were the ones that put on the show's DVDs. So, there's no telling what versions of what old shows' episodes might be put on Disney+.

 

And, there's that one banned episode of Darkwing Duck that had Gosalyn literally make a deal with the Devil. Who knows if that'll ever see the light of day again, officially.

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.

On a related note, Disney+ has confirmed it will carry pretty much ALL the Marvel animated shows.

 

including the 90s X-Men, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Fantastic Four & Incredible Hulk.

Much prefer the home video release model, but seeing as Disney only put out complete DVD sets of three of those older Marvel series (bizarrely, not including Spider-Man '94), this isn't a bad development.

 

Maybe they could finally fully recoup the investment cost of dubbing all 51 episodes of Disk Wars into English and put that on the service too, since the dubbed version is literally not available anywhere else.

Amazingly, not a single episode of the English-dubbed Disk Wars has ever been available online, but from the few clips and tweets out there, it's believed that several actors have reprised their roles from earlier series, including from Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Avengers Assemble and Wolverine and the X-Men.

 

Future Avengers also apparently has many role reprisals, also including actors from Avengers Assemble, plus some of the actors from the Disk Wars dub.

 

There was clearly some care put into the casting of the shows, at least. Which makes it all the more odd that both dubs were never brought over by Disney, and the Disk Wars dub being buried after its one showing in Asia.
