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

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)

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

Maria's group are awkward. I get the idea is they're forcing themselves to save humanity but they're so amateur in the first half and then the second half over compensates by ratcheting up the drama.


Yeah that's kinda stayed the same last I saw (AXZ).
 

Ver is an entertaining villain but I wondered how his ploys worked given how transparently evil he was. The cast all know how twisted he is and then 5 seconds later put faith in him.


I haven't seen G in a long time but I think out of the FIS crew he was really the one closest to having a solid plan.
 

Hibiki's plot was interesting but feels like the writers had to escape a corner because this is a franchise now and Hibiki's power would be difficult to escalate in a balanced way.


This reminds me that YuYuYu's sequel somehow caught up with three seasons of Symphogear's power escalation despite being six episodes.

I think out of all the villians in the show, he had the best plan, thou season 3 villian plan or agenda is pretty crazy worthy of Shockwave from TF, because of what they wanted to do. Season 4 villians plan goes AWOL, but it does result in a awesome scene involving Hibki dishing out punches and a few new/old tricks for the final battle of the season. As for the fifth season, so far, its ok but the character who seems to be the primary villian, his motives make next to no sense currently while the three who are doing the dirty work, I can kind of get what their motivations are, thou how they are going to acomplish that, hasn't been revealed yet!

 

Anyway, still watching Saint Seiya, in the part of the series where the four heroes must break through the twelve temples of the Gold Saints to face the main villian directly, the ep I just finished was where DeathMask finally got justice served upon him!

 

Also watching Grandblue Fantasy from Netflix, not a bad series so far, thou the flying lizard (who believes himself a dragon) appears to be voiced by the same person who voices Happy from Fairy Tail (I watching subtitled with original langauge) and they are using the exact same voice for the character, I certainly like this series more than Revisions, I felt that was a weak series that is let down by its main lead being a totally full of himself for more than half the season!

I hope they do find and can add the old dubs, too.  I always loved when things, like the Giant Robo DVDs, had both dubs on them.

 

Now, the question is do I do the $60 or $90 tier.  Still have 28 days to decide, I guess.

I think he might mean that AXZ's villain goes AWOL, which I mean if you were to take the term lightly he does just never do much and expect the rest of his team to pull up the slack even though they constantly prove themselves extremely useless.

 

Actually

Spoiler

 

 

Hibiki's power would be difficult to escalate in a balanced way.

 

I'm slightly glad they never learned from this considering what happens in AXZ.

Just watched the latest ep of Astra Lost in Space, good ep, I am really enjoying this series, with each revelation the show provides about its characters, how the relationships unfold, of course the comedy parts of the story are making this a great series to watch.

 

On a unrelated note, the English Language manga books of One piece have now overtaken the anime completely, I blame it on the relentless filler/flashbacks they used for the Reverie Arc, but it had to happen sometime and it did, in Wano!

I'm not sure what you're even trying to say here. If there was no filler, the anime would have a more sporadic broadcast schedule, so the manga translation would've caught up even in this hypothetical timeline.

Actually, that last part sounds like you already know that your reasoning doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

So uh... someone wanna give me a complete rundown of what's currently going on with Funimation? I saw they were trending on Twitter and when I looked further into the matter, it did not look good... I'm at work so I'm not going down the NSFW rabbit hole on a work computer.

Essentially from what I'm seeing is someone found some very hentaish audio tracks with the DBZ cast that was never meant to be public and the internet is burning them alive for it being hypocritical after firing Vic for less.

The Vic stuff isn't for here or there, but this sounds like a bad joke that accidentally got out. If it was all just adults messing around who really cares.

 

I mean, Funimation brought us gems like B Gata H Kei, High School DxD, Hybrid x Heart Magias, and Heaven's Lost Property, they aren't exactly a bastion for the pure of heart.

Currently watching The Testament of Sister New Devil, not a bad series, thou I think it would benefit from the removal of the prevent parts.

 

I've also rewatched completely, Record of Grancrest War, not a bad series but in places it really lacks character development, mainly those following the two main leads of the series as many of the characters come off more 1D than fully fleshed out characters as much of the story focuses upon the larger picture of a war that being waged across a large continent and people seeking to claim crests and bloster their standing in the world.

Just been watching Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, movie 3, to be honest, its rather shallow in regards to the story presented, the animation is ok but the story is rather weak, one of the weakest anime film stories I seen, granted its a sequel to the TV series of the same name, still it feels rather weak in regards to its story.
