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)

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)

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

Just great. I find a Hellcat, and her Thanos arm came with the right shoulder. I can't put it in Thanos' torso.

 

Welp, gotta return her tomorrow.

I saw the Coulson 3-pack at TRU today.  I want Coulson, just not $55 want Coulson.  Maybe he'll get clearanced out at some point.

 

Yeah, it makes me happy I got the set online - though I notice the website has also jacked the price up to match the store's after having had them for 49 and then 39.99. It's like they momentarily forgot about following their normal policy of over-priced exclusives.

Last night at TRU I saw two TRU exclusive 3.75 two packs that reuse some older bodies from various lines. The two packs were Cap and Black Widow, and Nick Fury with Mark 43 Iron Man. I almost bought them but didn't know if more two packs were going to be released with the other Avengers, so I didn't pick them up.

Nice, those are out? I had no interest in them when they were announced, but in light of recent events I actually need to replace all those characters.

A custom Morph with Faceless One's head.

 

Also, I exchanged the bum Hellcat with another Hellcat and finally, Thanos' arm fits.

 

Cap and Iron Man left.

I need more AoA MLs.  Sabretooth, my 2 x Weapons Xs, Holocaust/Nemesis, and Sunfire are getting lonely.  I gave them their own shelf, dammit Hasbro.  Give me something to put on said shelf.

 

You can start with Cyclops.  Pretty much the only iteration of the character that I ever cared for.

I'd love to have a decent Morph figure be it in Legends or 3.75" as he was the one major part (aside from Blink) that I loved about Exiles. May I ask though, What made u decide on the skin color choice for Blink, thought she was a little more pinkish? Awesome customs overall :)

She is definitely more pinkish. This figure is from the Magic:The Gathering line. I just haven't done anything to her yet.

I'm fine with passing on the Figuarts Avengers, but movie Ant-man and Yellowjacket would be hard to resist.

Bug-themed costumes and armor is definitely something the line has experience with.

Thanks! She's darn near a spitting image, isn't she? I had been reading through the full run of Exiles on marvel U when I saw her the first time. It just clicked. :)

 

I do think that my next order from Hobbylnk is going to have some shades of pink, though.

A pic request, if anyone here still has these three Legends together: a height comparison of the new Pizza Spider-Man :D, ASM2 Spider-Man, and the original trilogy Spider-Man (the one with three ab joints). My OT Spidey is sadly becoming a ragdoll - he can barely stand up anymore, so I tend to have him in crouched poses now - and I'm contemplating if I should get ASM2 Spidey (I like the etched webs and the textured blue, but I read that it's a bit shorter since it represents the teenage ASM Peter) or Pizza Spidey (he'll look great with Spider-Girl, but his colors seem a bit too bright for my tastes, and he has no calf swivels) as a replacement.

 

Also, does Agent Venom use the hip joint sockets that go nearly straight up into the torso?

The foretold Guardians of the Galaxy 5-pack has finally reared its head.

 

I'm glad I've avoided buying any of these characters so far. Since 3/5ths of this box seems to be straight re-releases.

I hope they can get the rest of the 2008 line-up out at some point, and not as an SDCC exclusive.

I didn't see any way to avoid buying the 3 that have already come out. Drax was needed for the BAF piece, Rocket is a BAF, and that SDCC set with Star-Lord was cheaper to get as a set rather than piecemeal.

 

That said, I wish we had some more info on this release; I don't wanna sell the guys I already have prematurely.
