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

@  unluckiness : (11 September 2019 - 09:24 AM)

Double Dash is great. Just watch out for blue shells

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)

Probably not

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 06:32 AM)

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

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

Sounds like your computer's on its last lags, Wonko

@  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)

*just stares*

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 04:27 AM)

My french is rusty but I'd guess Italienne-americain pain du sauce

@  Nevermore : (07 September 2019 - 02:58 AM)

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

Experimenting with recording gifs directly on my smartphone.  Cool gimmick I wish they made a Grimlock like this with both red and blue eyes.  Or maybe a Starscream where one of the facial expressions is an evil smirk.

Why did no one tell me Death's Head II looked amazing? I really hope they put out Death's Head in a future wave.

Ok, so the site is especially stupid. It said "In-store only", and gave me the option to pick up at my local store. I went to add it to my cart, it added, then gave me an "out of stock" notification shortly thereafter.

 

I went to my local TRU and gave them the "R" web number (#298221) for the 2-pack. They said the had 8 of them, even though the site was saying they were sold out. They strolled into the back and busted out the box. I got my two 2-packs, fresh from the case.

 

Good luck, all.

Retro Wolverine is in stock at TRU.com. I didn't look for the others, but he is the one I've been having the most problems finding myself. And it's BOGO 40% off.

 

Also, the Medusa exclusive is in stock at walgreens.com.

Oh man, I went to mess with my Tom Jane Toybiz Punisher, and I wanted to see if I could get the jacket on Netflix Punisher.

...and yeah, no.  For one, the jacket doesn't fit.  For two, all the faux-leather material began disintegrating en masse as soon as I started handling it.

 

RIP Punisher Jacket.

 

That was practically the only thing that made Tom Jane Punisher palatable.  Now he just sucks.  Binned.

Amazon has most of the Retro-series available for ~50% off as the deal of the day.

I'm glad I waited on buying these.

 

Also, Wal-mart stores have been getting the Exclusive Black Panthers in lately.  I finally got my comic BP goodness.

I'll pretty much take anything Avengers West Coast, including a 90s Mockingbird.

I admit, I do like the West Coast Byrne version as well. I really enjoyed his run on that title, and found the Vision Quest story enthralling.

 

Still, I NEEDS me the Classic version.

So I had every figure from the Netflix wave except Jessica Jones because well, I don't really care for Jessica Jones.

But then I saw Shartimus Prime talk about being able to repurpose her body as plain clothes for other female ML figures, and I got this Retro Black Widow head that I'm not using anyway... plus Walmart had JJ on clearance for $9... so yeah.  Now I have street-clothes Mary Jane.

 

Oh, and also a complete Man-Thing, who is a nicely sculpted/produce figure, but I don't have any tie to the character so he might has well be from another toy line entirely in terms of fitting into my collection.  Binned.

So, I got the Black Panther Comic Iron Man tonight at Target.

 

Man, I really, really don't like how the Armor looks in the comics, but as a figure...it's really good. The Tony Stark head is perfect.

 

My only gripe about it is the repulsor hands not having hinges. I mean, come on.
