One year of undergrad in Canada (at least my province) is around 2,000 US. You guys hosed up

we hosed up? no, a handful of assholes gamed this poo poo, and then our president at the time handed them all a big loving bag of cash. oh, good job!

one semester of undergrad at a state school was $2000 when i started university. which i guess was just the right time because i didn't have very much in the way of loans when i finished. both tuition and housing experienced a 33% increase the semester after i left.

The reason I managed to avoid getting saddled with mountains of student debt was that my parents took out a loan for it instead. But my dad is terrible at managing money so after a decade the principal has barely been paid down and in his old age he's just stopped paying all of his debts and hoping to outrun the consequences in death

I keep getting promotional mailers from my bank telling me they'll give me a whole $200 if I open a new account and maintain a balance of $15,000 for 3 months. Who does that appeal to, it's like a 2% return, if I had $15k to just move around and let sit for 90 days maybe but they should know based on my account history that I've never had anything close to that in it. Stop wasting paper, bank.

Also I had to block my undergraduate university on my phone because twice a year every year since I graduated they have been soliciting donations and the only thing preventing me from yelling on the phone "You loving assholes, your endowment is gigantic and I paid you out the rear end for tuition, maybe call me in 15 years" is that the person on the phone is an underpaid student worker

I got a TFSA when they were running a promotion for 2% interest for the next six months and now it's down to 1.1% but there aren't any charges and if there was a minimum it sure as hell wasn't 15k. Canadian here, guess it's different in the States. My regular savings did offer a garbage interest rate though, yeah, but I've closed that now.

My credit union hides all the good deals on their page buried under three links.

I'm working on incorporating myself so I can write off a car and my office as business expenses and pay for trips. If the Republicans are going to give my mortgage interest deduction to people who make over 500k I'm going to abuse every obscure tax law I can discover. Why yes, my corgi which got certified as a guard dog in a weekend seminar guards my house, a place of business so I would like a return for vet expenses and squeaky balls tyia

Unfortunately you're at least one hundred times more likely to be audited and jailed for tax evasion than any of them

JRPG combat can get super grindy but at least the start of the genre had a significant focus on story and, most importantly, a defined end goal for the game.

That's the insidious part of all these modern grind games: they never end. They try to get you to play them as much as possible and build up an investment in them, which keeps you from wanting to abandon them. You just end up digging a deeper hole the more you play them.

what version are you using? they work fine on .184, so maybe try going down to that cause MAME versions can be pretty picky

use .184 imo, .165 is super old and has a way more annoying ui and a lack of graphical settings so there's no way to turn off filtering and stuff and everything looks real blurry

wait I didn't have BL in there but I downloaded it and it shows up but it's missing 'rom or chd images'

I'll try 184

e; 184 just hangs on a black screen for a while, idk i'll mess around with it more another day
