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)

@  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

So I'm seeing lots of Gridman and SSSS Gridman model kits from Bandai, Megahouse, and Good Smile. What're the chances there'll be an SHFiguarts of either iteration?  I've been collecting a lot of the Kamen Rider and Ultra series figures and to have Serv--Gridman in that style would be awesome.

There's an old Ultra-Act Gridman figure Bandai did a few years ago, but it's notorious for having fragile wrists.

They've been making Ultraman Figuarts for a few years now but

a) I don't have firsthand experience with those so I don't know how they compare to Ultra-Act

b) That line's been pretty slow to get to Heisei characters so I don't know the odds of a Gridman any time soon. I think there's only X and Zero for Heisei Tsuburaya characters so far.

c) wait did they choose to only make heisei ultras with megaman-sounding names

Speaking of insane...

So this is a thing:



It's from a line by Bandai called Neko Busou (ねこぶそう), which is clearly Japanese for "Murder Cats."

(actually, it's Cat Armament - but Murder Cats sounds way more fun).


The Dianaut and chair are from Diaclone Reboot, of course.  I also painted it up a bit since everything being olive drab was a bit... drab.  

Holy carp,I don't even like cats, but this things just speaks to me in some weird Japanese acid-trippy sort of way.


Like this is the most epic death machine in my entire Diaclone arsenal now.  And since the pegs sizes are the same, I can cross-contaminate all I want.


I've got the standard four releases coming this week.


And in November, there's a Mad-Max style kitty-scooter o' death coming out:



Gods help me if Bandai start doing Shiba Inu in the same format.  I will be so broke.

EDIT:  Reconfigured it to look a little better.  That weird stock "claw-thingy" configuration was poop.

The exorbitant price tag aside, I really enjoy having him.  He's a massive beast of a toy all built up.  Quite solid for a model kit, owing to the pure ABS construction, and large, monolithic chunks of plastic.

And he's kinda in-scale to the GGG bots from the rest of the line, which is one of the IWANTS reason.

Hell, I paid for GekiRyuJin and the SymDocker space boosters. May as well!

It's a bit concerning how DA seems to have quickly fallen back on making characters from other licenses rather than continuing with their original designs.


It doesn't help that most of said licensed characters have been getting the better engineering. :doh

MP Eva arrived. This is the first NXEDGE in a few months and whilst it's another Eva it's nice that it's not a simply a rehash of the lead three, who have had their Rebuild and TV designs by this point. The figure itself is a shared exclusive between Bandai webshop and the official Eva store. The wing unit is pretty impressive and they included neck rotation so you can get it into feral poses. That had been one of my big complaints with these as Eva toys. You can pull off the pseudo-tokusatsu poses but the more feral, primal stuff didn't really work (made worse by competing SD Evas pulling this off) so them realising that here is great. 


You get another appearance of the Lance (this time in navy/purple) and the double edged sword. This is designed so the handle pops off and slides into the hand before attaching back on. Another thing that shows they've learned as getting the Evas more complicated weapons into their hands as is on this line is a chore.


From here on out it looks like the line is dedicating itself to Mashin Hero Wataru for now. It's also up in the air if I'll be able to get imported toys post-March but nice to see they're improving in the right direction.
