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)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 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 know it's probably par for the course for SD kits, but it's funny how they advertise the impressive color separation for the heads on these... but still leave the bodies in large chunks of single colors, necessitating painting for most of the kit anyway. :wtf

On one hand, yay the F-90 is getting a modern MG level kit!

 

On the other hand P-Bandai and the mission pack is separate, so this will be a pricey purchase.

 

I am still thinking of getting it, I always liked the F-90.  It's original kit was actually very nice for the time period, so I want to see what an updated modern version with the MG bells and whistles, will be like.

I have been meaning to comment on Gundam Build Divers since I finished it, but kept making lazy excuses to procrastinate...

 

It is one of my favorite Gundams in years.  I think it makes a lot more sense and is a lot more interesting than how they worked in Gundam Build Fighters.  Story was a bit hammy, but it was fun because it did not have to be very serious, and much was more day to day stuff.  I would have preferred them using the Burning Gundam as a base, as that is still my favorite, but they was already done with GBF, and 00 is another of my favorites, so it was still cool.

 

Now for a few more comments on the show:

 

I find it humorous thinking in our world's modern vocal view: the Gundams are basically physical DLC, and I can imagine some would go all out against it (look at some of the comments on Amiibos, Starlink, Skylanders, etc.), plus, I can imagine people could make some really good money if they are great model builders (we have a few on our own forums).

 

It is the first Gundam (and one of the few anime) where I understand both sides at the end and could actually see myself siding with either.  It is very easy and common to be able to understand both sides, but be fundamentally or vehemently opposed to one (like in politics...).

 

Spoiler

 

I also loved how the used the real world mall, store and Gundam Unicorn statue as their main base.  I have only been to the trailer Gundam Base shop right outside the statue (due to timing constraints), but if I ever go again, I will definitely go inside the main store.

I honestly think they could do a Gundam MMO in the style of Divers if they wanted to.  All you have to do is either have people scan in the UPC of whatever model kits they buy and/or have a digital eshop to do the same thing.  And, if people want to do completely custom builds like they do in the show, let 'em but use some sort of point buy in order to keep builds reasonable.

 

Ironbite-ahhh but we can dream.

Painting in the GM head's visor and cameras is tempting me a bit to grab the Silhouette Booster once it comes out and another RX-78-2 set so I can make a GM. :wtf Fortunately, that idea's offset by the Ground Gundam having a canonical GM head swap. :p

Also, I'm considering trying out one of the upcoming revamped LBX kits... but if you think about it, given their similar squat proportions and the compatibility the frame offers, the SDCS line may as well be 'LBX, but with Gundam'. :D

Looks nifty enough.  The Nu being a larger MS should be a benefit in its favor for building it too.  Fewer easy to loose tiny parts.

Has anyone seen the SD Soketsuden kits for sale? I know BBTS has them but can't find them on HLJ, Amiami, etc.

Based on the official site worried they're doing with Ex-Standard- Japanese sites have been told not to export these because Bandai wants to control supply to other markets.

They've shown up at regular retail here in Southeast Asia (I'm in the Philippines, to be specific), if that means anything for your side of the world.

These things very much have me hooked (for the time being). :D I'm still kind of disappointed that the new SD Sangoku line doesn't use the CS system, though - would've made for great interaction and compatibility.

And there is the Penelope in its monstrous glory.  A little surprised it got shown off before the Xi, but I am not complaining.  That thing should be the size of a Master Grade.  Hopefully the Odysseus Gundam can be disengaged from the armor too.
