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.

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.

Wow - so much drama in such a short post. And I don't know a thing about any of it (nor do I need to know thank you, that's half the battle I could care less about). icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

Suffice it to say it's a pretty dull figure on its own merits. Though, isn't that head just Bench Press with a lighter brown goatee instead of the dark brown beard? Sure looks like him anyway.


I was there at the time, and so I witnessed the carnage first-hand.

The long and short of it is that, due to the circumstances behind the decision to make the 2001 figures Surefire and Big Brawler into homages, a very large percentage of the active Joe fandom at the time erupted in a ball of fury at both Hasbro and the people being homaged because they felt personally offended.

It was really, really ugly, and as such for the purposes of my own Joe-Verse I quite promptly rewrote their file cards to tone them both down.

I do tend to agree with Detour on principle here.

Of the still hundreds of characters left undone (and most will probably NEVER be touched by Hasbro), we get a remake of a vanity figure with a new headsculpt and some of the newest ranges of tooling we know about (he uses parts from the Law figure THAT HASN'T EVEN BEEN RELEASED). With all the tooling available (ish), we couldn't get Nunchuck, Dart, Heavy Duty, Hi-Tech, or (considering how much arctic stuff Hasbro has done over the past 4 years) a decent V1 Frostbite (who would just need a new head)?

Not only that, but I just don't think the product is very good. For the trends collectors have been clamoring for (grounded, PoC like colors and aesthetics), Sure Fire really sticks out as being excessively bright in color


To me, though, if we get a DEF Shockwave out of the deal I'd be willing to go along with it.

If nothing else, replace the greens with a mix of dark blues & the figure would fit in with the movie aesthetics.

That's only a fragment of David Lane's infamy, though.

You see, back in the 90's and early double-0's, a fan named Rod Hannah ran a website called Zartan's Domain. The website also featured a public message board. Meanwhile, David Lane ran a fanclub called the Steel Brigade fanclub, which had been around for a few years and while it wasn't an official fanclub, Hasbro did recognize its existence. It had a rep for being quite elitist, picking and choosing its members among other things.
When a random member of the Zartan's Domain message board posted his personal thoughts on the SB club, Lane basically tried to pass himself off as Hasbro itself and slap Rod with pretend C&Ds and even threatened Rod's ISP.

And then there's 2006, when the Convention set got that horrible, poor quality Cobra Mortal that was essentially a straight remake of the original except with swivel arms (something the Club had never done before or since!) basically because Mr. Lane, despite being one of those "higher-end" fans with the budget, didn't want to spring for the classic one.

The Club claims that Hasbro didn't let them use the original blue/black colors because Hasbro said it'd make it too similar to Law. But considering how they had earlier claimed Hasbro wouldn't let them use recent tooling only to pull this BS on us, well...

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

Well, what molds Fun Pub can or can't use fluctuates all the time. What's true for one figure might not be true for the next.

But making the colors the same as the retail version of the mold? That's pretty much always going to be avoided.

I find it very hard to believe that they could be in the middle of doing these subscription figures and all of a sudden Hasbro would be all "Hey, you guys can use our newest toolings!" right as they got to Sure Fire.
To get approval for such a system, it seems more likely that they'd submitted all 13 figure ideas at once.

Here's the drama as I understand it...

Club: Hey, here's a figure of a fourth-stringer we've been featuring in our fiction for a few years now.

Half the fandom: HOW DARE YOU. This is a source of a great and terrible angst because of some internet crap that happened a decade ago on message boards that either don't exist or are no longer relevant, but we will not let go of.

The other half: We have mixed reactions dependent on feelings regarding the actual figure.

Additionally, here at the Allspark...

Detour: The Club is always lying to us and saving the best for their own stuff!

NightViper: It doesn't work the way you think it does, and there's some good reasons why some of the things you want don't happen.

Detour: Yeah? Well you're wrong. It clearly works the way I say it does.

And the crime in wanting the fandom at large to have the chance to get a cheaper copy of an extraordinarily rare, extraordinarily expensive figure that Hasbro would never redo themselves is...?

I've been given the impression from Fun Pub at the various BotCons that Hasbro is a very fickle bitch.

We hear all the time how things that applied to them once before no longer apply, and how things that they were once able to do, they can no longer do.

Remember when within a matter of months, BotCon Cheetor went from TransTech Cheetor (because Hasbro would let them use the Animated toys but not their universe) to actual Animated Cheetor, co-star in an entire Animated themed year?

And that's just recent memory. I'm still traumatized from the whiplash in the later Glen Hallit years.

Yeah. Nobody ever discusses the fiction. Not even the convention comics. That should give you a good idea of the quality of it.

This probably won't surprise you, but I discuss it with several friends. I enjoy quite a bit of it. The Club consistently provides some of my favorite GI Joe fiction right now (I will be a VERY sad fanboy when Adventure Team leaves the spotlight).

I've actually been thinking that a Joe Mag thread would be a good idea to bring some others out of the woodwork. Currently I'm just kind of weighing comic/non-comic content to decide where to go with it and waiting on the next issue so there's something fresh to start with.
QUOTE

Yeah... because if you were writing fiction and had a figure that patterned after you that had never ever seen fiction, the last thing you'd do is rectify that. Good god, the HORROR.

I'll freely admit to not having read every appearance of Sure-Fire, but I don't recall any hyped-buildup or overuse. He was just there, getting some facetime--GI Joe has so many characters that "facetime appearances" are standard. Yeah, this case is somewhat different, but the entirety of your complaining is based in some ridiculous meta-grudge from 10 years ago and has very little to do with the character and nothing to do with how he was used.

I wish I had some, but I didn't even know it existed up until about halfway through all these subscription figures. In spite of being part of multiple Joe communities.

In fact at some point recently someone described what the Joe club comic/newsletter was like and the comic was not even mentionned.
Any time con sets are discussed, it's all about the toys. Never see any discussion about the comics, and the first time I was even aware a comic had been produced was for the 2009 con set (and even then it was just for a few character scans in a review of the toys), and heard no mention of comics in the following two con sets.

I dunno... I mean, I guess I know now they exist, but unlike the TF fanclub's fiction it seems to be largely ignored by the fandom at large.

The closest thing to a critique of the fiction I'd heard came from Sure Fire's reveal, who criticized Sure Fire's inclusion in said Club fiction as being "a lame mary sue shoehorned in at Lane's insistance".


So.... yeah. Sorry, there's just not much to comment on when I don't even HEAR about the stories. I don't know what else to tell you, I mean you and Siph wrote a lot of killer TF fiction.

Okay, a few things that hopefully clear some things up.

The Joe Club Newsletter, for the most part, did not have a comic. Maybe one snuck in for the last issue, I'd have to double-check. The comics didn't really start until the Joe Club switched over to the same "Magazine" format that the Transformers Club uses. Which was probably just under two years ago.

As for the convention comics, I believe that the 2008 Headhunters comic was the first of those. That story did have Sure Fire in it, but he was constantly being trashed by the other Joes in the comic. The only time he entered anything resembling that "bad-ass Mary Sue" realm was when he shot two Headhunter soldiers that tried to get the drop on him. But really, that was somewhat tame compared to the heroics from the other Joes in the comic. And, well, for GI Joe comics everywhere.

David Lane does work closely with the writers for the GI Joe comics. He is the editor after all. So he does offer suggestions for the story and characters all the time. For this year's Club comics, Dave suggested Sure Fire. Not insisted, but suggested. Since the Dial-Tone story arc featured the Joes from the 2008 Headhunters comic rather heavily, it made sense to have him in the planning/coordinating phase of the mission.

Wait, hold up.

So you're throwing out assumptions of the quality of things you've never read and barely heard about, and the little bit you did hear conveniently reaffirmed your mad-on. Instead of admitting such upfront, you offered it as proof that the Club shouldn't make an updated figure of a guy they've featured in their fiction.

No, I'm pretty sure that means FunPub just needs some better press.

Yeah. Nobody ever discusses the fiction. Not even the convention comics. That should give you a good idea of the quality of it.

I wish I had some, but I didn't even know it existed up until about halfway through all these subscription figures.

The closest thing to a critique of the fiction I'd heard came from Sure Fire's reveal, who criticized Sure Fire's inclusion in said Club fiction as being "a lame mary sue shoehorned in at Lane's insistance".

So.... yeah. Sorry, there's just not much to comment on when I don't even HEAR about the stories. I don't know what else to tell you, I mean you and Siph wrote a lot of killer TF fiction.
