I managed to find about 2/3s of my goal Sega Genesis collection before the last price bump

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

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?

@  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)

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

Watching Fate/Apocrypha, I still like the female Saber and the female Rider, thou the female Berserker is somewhat attractive, Ruler is nice but those three are just better, Saber for her tom boy personalty, Rider because of her happy go lucky personalty, Berserker, not sure what attacts me aside from the fact she dressed in white with red hair and the grunts she makes!

Huh, I somehow never noticed the anime thread before.

 

Sadly it's come to the point in my life I have to pick and choose what I spend time on/with, so I'm not the biggest anime watcher anymore.

 

All I'm looking at for the moment is Rising of a Shield hero, and Dororo.

 

Dororo because I played the hell out of "Blood Will Tell" for the PS2. Kinda sucks it means I know the basics of the story, but neat seeing the characters in a more fleshed out medium.

 

Recently finished "How Not to Summon a Demon Lord" Which I thought was pretty fun.

 

Then for those of you that know of my anime stream Thursday nights, we're watching "Log Horizon" and "My Love Story" Both which are great.

Still not sure what we'll move on to after one of those ends, though at some point we do plan to show Green Green to demonstrate how NOT to write friends for the main character...

The Autoscorers were not Carol's friends, they were just animated dolls based on various personality traits we are told she has but she never exhibits.

First quote: That's me with videogames as well. :/ 
Then again My roommate and I stream anime Thursday nights, Saturday Morning Cartoons Saturday Morning, and a videogame Saturday night. Then I have work, hanging with friends, and at the start of every month a board game night, and I think that's a good use of my free time.

 

Second quote about the Autoscorers.

Green Green as a whole sounds terrible so if the friends are specifically bad they must be the literal worst.

 

I think this is the second time this year that I've read about an R18 visual novel getting an R18 OVA series in addition to an 'all ages' anime, though Green Green got a lot of varied OVAs so it must have been popular.

 

The other instance is YU-NO, but the R18 OVA is almost twenty years older than the upcoming 'all-ages' anime.

There is an interesting story in Green Green.

 

I just wish it wasn't told IN Green Green.

 

The friends pretty much ruin the entire show. I'd give anything to get an anime that focuses more on the real plot of the show, and just cut the friends out almost entirely. I mean there is a part in the show where the main guy finally calls them out on their bullshit, and the anime treats it as if the MC is in the WRONG.

 

I ended up buying it to show, and will likely hold on to my copy, but I can't really recommend it. If anyone wants to see the train wreck though I can post in my anime thread in Mayhem when we'll start it for the stream.

Sounds fun.

 

Seems a lot of visual novels have plots like that. You can't recommend the VN versions either since they're almost always full of romance routes that run 30h each and each has about a fifth of the plot.

Star☆Twinkle PreCure had an episode where the lesson was "It's okay to keep things from your parents if you know they won't react well." It's a good lesson, and the character faced with this arc is mature enough to handle this situation, but it feels like a weird lesson for a kid's show (or any show, really).

 

And I mean PreCure keep their identities from their parents the majority of the time but this specifically calls for Actual Real Subterfuge.

 

Which is weird because this is one of the "The villains know who the PreCure are but don't ever target their homes or families or anything." though that seems like this will change next week.

I love Fairy Tail, the openning fight of the latest ep was a riot and had me laughing out loud, sure Fairy Tail might not be the biggest of the shogan format series but I come to love the show for its story of bonds and its action sequences, plus how the comical moments come across on screen, Power scaling might be somewhat wacked at times but the series delivers on good battles and stories, thou I think one of the cleverist parts of Fairy Tail's writing is the seven year time skip and the consqueneces of what happened at the end of the previous arc.

I find it funny that somebody up in the value chain decided that exclusively streaming the second season of One Punch Man on Hulu was a good idea because like, no, it is not.
