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

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

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

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Dunno, crucial says it's fine, gonna need a second opinion.

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 - 01:11 AM)

Are they still suing Italian restaurants for having food that's insufficiently French?

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

Probably CycloneJoker Gold Xtreme (or whatever order that's supposed to be in) given its use in last year's Movie Wars. Which would follow anyway since Super TaToBa seems like it has more of a stance as the true super form for OOO rather than PuToTyra. In that case it might be more unfortunate if Magnet States doesn't debut in Movie Wars if it's going to be the TaJaDoru/FangJoker of Fourze.

Wow, tons of awesome news. Meteor looks cool, and now we can actually see his head he doesn't look anything like Ankh. Rocket State is about what I'd expect from a Rocket-based form, and it's nice to see that, at least to the mid-series point, Fourze isn't getting a berserk dino Switch. And as much as I think the Foodroids are stupid, I can't help but love the ice cream cone one just for how odd it is.

I know it won't happen, but the good development on the Kamen Rider Club in Fourze is making me wish that there could be a third Rider belt (since it seems likely Meteor is a new guy) that could just be passed around as the plot demands.

Kinda wish he had more color from the waist down, but the fact that his entire suit is a giant constellation makes up for it.

It seems pretty safe to say he's not Shun, because if he was he'd be doing the salute pose. I remember seeing somewhere (probably in the old thread) a name and stock photo of an actor playing a "mysterious high school kid" or something like that in the new Movie War, which sounds very like Terui's appearance at the end of Movie War 2010.

See, I'd already been hoping for that possibility on some level. Watching Kiva, "Team IXA" filling out over the course of the series was one of my favorite elements. It'd be cool to get something like that happening again since it has been a little while since the concept was last put to practice at all.

Which will also guarantee that any sub-Figuarts toy of it will likely look horribly, boringly plain since the starfield deco is probably cost-prohibitive except for Figuarts. I'd bet it'll be a really short wait for Meteor to get an upgrade that adds some more colors in somehow.

I kind of want them to remember that the Powerdizer is also a launch platform and that the Machine Full-Speeder can launch in to low orbit. Sometime before Meteor debuts, mind you, since I'm sure that gimmick will get used at least once around then.

They could've done so much better with Super TaToBa's design.

They threw away one of the strongest points of the OOOs design (the main black body) and give us a multicolored wreck. I love the Taka Brave head on TaJaDoru but without the green eyes here it just looks messy and feels like they did just rip it off that other suit.

They should've just 'Brave-ified' the Tora and Batta parts; bigger, more ornate claws and gauntlets for the arms and some greaves for some added weight to the legs. Put a cape on it and say's it's the true form of King OOOs!

I do like Meteor though. His eyes look like Super-1's, I wonder if that's intentional?

RaToraTa and GataKiriBa should probably have had amped up parts anyway to begin with, and then they could have just combined all those aspects. I think trying to introduce that now would just seem weird. Mind you, I am not at all okay with how that suit looks either. I think yellow bodysuits for Riders needs to be put on a no-fly list. It only barely worked for Wing Den-O, and just because it fit that Sieg was ridiculous above all.

I LOVE Super TaToBa!

"Disabled people dont have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnt a special need. Its a basic human right. Its a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
