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)

@  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)

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

It's a great accessory.

Did you get it from the 50th Anniversary Baroness or the Rise of Cobra Baroness?

 

 

It can attach to the ROC Cobra Gunship for max funs.

50th Anniversary.

I think I'm probably done with my IDW supervillain shelf now, unless a 3.75-inch Miles Mayhem comes into existence someday, but I am kinda tempted to find a hooded Cobra Commander and give his head and gloves to the Baroness...

I'm still toying with whether I want to remove his beard paint and give him his comic-accurate moustache.

I dunno if it's widely known, but he's actually got the little skinny moustache sculpted onto him, with the full beard just painted over the top. Apparently Hasbro changed their mind about his facial hair last minute!

Hey! Hey guys!  We got to dig up this corpse because Hasbro's being weird at the licensing expo in Las Vegas.

 

An image popped up on Social Media showing that Hasbro has a walled off room for GI Joe.  They don't have that for any other brand.

https://twitter.com/...395881790496768

 

Former Hasbro employee Bobby Vala has been quite negative in his response, indicating his view that it's probably Hasbro trying to license out GI Joe like Mattel has done with MOTU or the recent agreement with Wicked Cool Toys making new Micro Machines.

 

My view is that Hasbro DOES have something big for GI Joe.  I don't think they'd have a big showing at a Licensing show if they were trying to pass it off to someone else.  My feeling is that Hasbro is still expecting the movie to get made (even with the delay.  Hell, still haven't heard ANYTHING about Micronauts progress), and if their work on Transformers and Power Rangers are any indication, they may well be hoping to have a multifaceted approach with more than just a movie line.  Maybe some sort of "evergreen" concept for licensing?

 

Guess we'll see in a few months.

What are you talking about?  Hasbro owned Kenner.  There was no licensing involved, just handing it off to a different branch.  You know, the same branch that did GI Joe Extreme.

I'm hard pressed to see that happening, since it requires someone having enough interest in Joe to pay Hasbro to use the name.

Super quick LBC. I picked up one of the Fortnite figs on sale and used him as a base for my new Joe character (head from Angelfire).
 
Guneet "Gunny" Singh 
PMOS:  Advanced Foreign Security Forces Advisor 
AMOS:   Infantry Unit Leader 
Birthplace: Yuba City, CA    Grade: E-7
 
Growing up in Yuba City, Guneet always admired the stories of his grandfather Bhagat Singh, who was one of the first Sikhs to serve in the US military. Wanting to follow in his footsteps, Guneet joined the Marine Corps straight out of high school, eventually earning the rank of Gunnery Sgt before being recruited for the JOE team from FORECON after an impressive joint mission. 
 
"Gunny'll jump out of anything, into anywhere, and swim, hike or crawl however far he needs to all with a smile on his face. He wears me out!" - Gung-ho
