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)

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)

@  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)

@  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 like a Neil Breen or Tommy Wiseau film: unintentionally autobiographical because the author lacks the skill to write outside their own perception, outside their own voice.https://t.co/clK7hZBuNy

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

I guess part of this I should contextualize that back in 2011/2012 I spent a lot of time on the TGWTG forums trying to explain that bad copyright laws like SOPA and flawed systems like Content ID weren't created "to target reviewers"

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

Doug's whole "where's the fair use?" hashtag took off after they had to deal with a rash of fraudulent copyright claims that resulted in a channel strike, and it's worth noting that people lying about holding copyright in order to harass you is not, in fact, a fair use issue.

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

Also "what if every woman in the movie is attracted to me, the hero?" is, incidentally, a common element across Breen, Wiseau, and Walker.

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

Anyway, that was a weird and slightly unsettling half hour trip.

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

Okay, that one I will dispute - no woman is attracted to Doug in the movie. But that's because sexuality is either played for bad jokes... or everyone's too misanthropic to be attracted to each other.

— Linkara (@Linkara19) January 1, 2019

Maybe I misheard the dialogue because I was still screaming about the contrast being cranked so high that Doug's suit turned into a solid field of black, but we all got the impression that Lindsay's intro is very much she flirts with Doug and the joke is he's oblivious.

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

and that was pretty much the point we bailed out.

— Dan Olson (@FoldableHuman) January 1, 2019

I'd love to see him do a Folding Ideas on it but that's unlikely given his friendship with Lindsay, he probably wouldn't want to bring up something so personally bad to her, and also he doesn't deserve to sit through that movie more times to prep the episode.

The two Gundamcember's have both been disappointing. Just this weird mix of half facts, bias and lack of optimism. It was hard to sit through him doing "0083 was my first Gundam and here's why it's so great!"

Y'know, I'd never seen this guy's videos before this, but I've been in a big anime mood lately, so I checked out a few.

And I don't know if it's him I find annoying, or if I'm just completely over the NC house-style of reviewing (synopsis, joke, synopsis, movie clip, pedantic arguing with whatever was said in the clip, synopsis, self-referential joke, synopsis, yell about something). But at least one of those two things is true.

I liked him when he just dished it out on schlocky anime but lately he's more about overanalyzing the merits and oeuvre of titninja animu makers so I haven't watched him in months...

I did like his review of Big Guy and Rusty. You could tell that he loved the show and was having fun with it.

QUOTE(Bass X0 @ Aug 17 2013, 08:20 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

He has done that the thing lately where a reviewer starts to think they're deeper than they are and it makes watching boring. I still haven't finished watching his review of Wolf's Rain because he now basically does these really weird reviews where he wants to go in depth...but avoid spoilers.

 

For a guy whose shtick was 'No modern anime so we can instead look at overlooked stuff', he's at the point where it now seems to be a lot of looks at recent stuff he wants to gush about. And the gushy episodes thus make it really awkward when he looks at something like Swat Kats and does the Doug Walker 'I have no nostalgia for this so it's crap.' The Big Guy and Rusty episode was mentioned and there he's tripping over himself to insist on layers of subtext. Same with 0083.

Been trying to get into the work of Tony Goldmark/Some Jerk With A Camera. I didn't expect to get much out of it given I don't really do theme parks but his stuff is actually pretty good. However, have 3 issues.

 

1. A lot of his stuff exists from a time when he was picked up by Channel Awesome. And it is really awkward how often he praises that and Doug across his videos given how things now stand. In particular, his BTTF 3 parter has a running joke about Doug being his abusive boss...yikes.

 

2. Sometimes the skits run a bit too long. In particular, one video has half it's run time given over to him having a breakdown upon discovering Disney mascots are just humans in costumes. Like it could have been a fun joke but he just keeps going and going with it.

 

3. One Movie Later. I dropped Brad over who he sided with on Change the Channel so been looking for a new vlog movie review series. The premise is good (Tony talks about what he's expecting a movie to be like, then expects about what he actually got). The problem is he involves at least 6 people in every episode and that gets pretty awkward. People hogging the conversation, people staring daggers at one another...again, yikes.

In reviewerverse-adjacent news...

 

Largerly-disgraced and mostly-unemployed former sitcom writer Grimmasse Limeham  La Glindaman Gammon Lintfan Graham Linehan has been on the forefront of a movement to pull funding from the organisation Mermaids which provides support and resources to trans kids and their families in the UK. 

 

Hbomberguy witnessed that situation unfold and was taken by a great and powerful surge of spite and decided to start a stream on Twitch to raise some money to support the charity. The subject of the stream? Donkey Kong 64. The stream will not end until the rare and coveted 101% completion is achieved. He does take breaks to sleep, but the stream continues with assorted guests providing chat and shenanigans.

 

Now, this all sounds pretty nice and wholesome as an endeavor. What you may not have guessed if this is your first time hearing of this that this stream has been going on for 42 hours and counting and featured surprise guests including (among others) Lindsay Ellis, Jim Sterling, Natalie Wynn, Dan Olson, Laura Kate Dale, the sound designer for DK64, Donkey Kong voice actor Grant Kirkhope, and also Chelsea Manning (specifically to help out with the Beaver Bother minigame). 

 

Oh, and they've raised $162069 so far.

I'm hoping some of Linehan's old collaborators come on to give support, that'd be the thing that makes this even greater.

 

Also #thanksgraham went trending for a while yesterday.
