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)

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)

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

@  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

Almost forgot - 

 

According to the film, Cannon actually had plans for a "Masters of the Universe 2". They were working on it and a "Spider-Man" film when the numbers came back. They literally couldn't afford to keep the licenses after their last few big-budget numbers, including MOTU, flopped, and so both projects were halted. 

 

Thing is, they'd already spent $2 million on costumes and sets for both MOTU2 and Spidey. 

 

So to compensate, they told one of their writers to put together a script for a movie that could make use of everything. 

 

Cue "Cyborg", one of the films that helped launch Jean-Claude Van Damme. 

 

So yeah: He-Man helped launch Van Damme. 

 

 

 

That being said, though, you have to wonder what an MOTU2 would have been like...

It would have sucked since they would have rushed it out with a cheaper script and even more limited budget.  I heard that the script featured nearly all the action on Earth again, with even fewer opportunities for effects or makeup.  And Cannon would have probably cut even MORE by the time they actually shot the thing.

 

 

But I saw that documentary, it is (or was) on Netflix.  Quite entertaining.

New mobile game, Tappers of Grayskull. There's not much to the gameplay but it's kind of cute and the bit that got my attention is that it features the voices of Alan Oppenheimer and Cam Clarke.

Going through MOTU figures I dug out of my parents shed last weekend.

I always really liked Tongue Lashor but I would not have guessed I owned more than one.

Matty is annoying me with seemingly having issues with my CC (never been a problem with anything on this card before) two months in a row.  I'm hoping that my Filmation sub isn't canceled as it is not showing up in my subscription area any more (despite them assuring me both months that everything would be fine).

Anyone have Extend-ar the instant giant from the tail end of the original line?

Just wondering.

Yes, there's a story.


https://en.wikipedia...of_Cannon_Films

 

Finally got around to watching it this morning. 

 

In addition to being a documentary about the rise and fall of Cannon Films, the documentary crew behind it specifically highlight several movies or movie franchises that they feel were of particular note. 

 

As part of it, the live-action "Masters of the Universe" film is discussed, with a focus on how Cannon's financial troubles affected the overall film. They even managed to get Dolph Lundgren himself to speak about the film. And as a bonus, one of the theatrical trailers for the movie is available as part of an assortment of Cannon trailers. 

 

However, because such a large percentage of Cannon's output contained graphic sex and violence, the documentary has an "R" rating by virtue of using some of that footage, and some of the trailers they have are what would be circulated as "red band" trailers today. 

 

I found my copy in a $5 bin at the local Wal-Mart, so if nothing else the thing's at least cheap if you do decide to see it. 

Thanks for the link. Added to my NF queue

Watched the documentary last night.

Blasts through oh so many movies, without really going into any of them. Dolph has about two sentences. Mixed comments, as some people revile the producers, while others seem to admire them. Some seem to both admire and revile them.

 

The MotU movie should have had a much better ending. The final sword fight was supposed to move around the entire throne room. Sadly, the script was too weak, and the focus in entirely the wrong age group. Oh well.

Sorry, forgot to share these pics from NYCC from the Super 7 booth.  Got some pictures of their highly articulated He-Man figs, but I didn't really focus on the ReAction He-Man figures, or any of the MOTUSLE figures.  Although, I did get pics of the entire Street Fighter 2 & Alien M.U.S.C.L.E. figs they'll be releasing.
