Reminds me of when Canada lost internet to 12 million of it's 33 million people because one company messed up doing maintenance.

It's not a knee jerk reaction. You're one person out of 8 billion. I'm treating your request the way I'd treat any request made to me by a random person on the internet. <3

Modelo Especial, Michelob Ultra and Bud Light. Those are the recent sales rankings of the top three beers in the U.S., according to data shared by Bump Williams consulting firm.

All three are owned by the same mega corp, Anheuser-Busch InBev. Mission accomplished.

Never ask a man his salary, a woman her age, or Kyle Gass what he wants for his 64th birthday.

I did contract negotiations for a while. Something that I always remember being told was "you can't be more excited to sign than the other person". It'll lead to you making bad deals. If the other side doesn't want to sign, neither do you.

My boss always said he preferred no contract over a bad contract. I once suggested that even a contract that pays out a bit is better than nothing. He countered by saying there's an opportunity cost in fulfilling a contract. We could be too busy fulfilling poor contracts that we have no time to negotiate and accept good ones. In that case, a poor contract could be seen as less valuable than nothing. I've had negotiations that lasted less than 15 minutes. I give a standard quote, they'd lowball, I'd say there's no way, they said they'd leave, I say here's the door. Done.

Imagine the timeline of Trump getting assassinated and Biden dying of COVID within weeks of each other.

For whatever reason this reminded me of culture bound syndromes, illnesses which only occur within certain cultures thought to be caused by unique stresses and beliefs found only within that culture.

I've recently started using the Boost for Lemmy app on my phone and it's amazing. I was using Liftoff before but I'm switching over. However, I've noticed an issue. When I browse through communities using Liftoff I see a lot more posts and comments than when I use Boost.

I figured this was an issue with Boost at first, but when I used my computer to edit these screenshots I noticed the same thing happens in my browser!

Opening up https://lemmy.world/c/boostforlemmy I see all the posts that Liftoff shows. Of course I'm not logged in since my account is on Lemmy.ca.

When I log into Lemmy.ca and view the community though: https://lemmy.ca/c/[email protected] I only see the posts that Boost shows! Many posts are now missing!

I figured this is an issue with Lemmy.ca blocking stuff. But wait! The most recent post (titled "Bug: Hiding all read posts also hides...") has the URL https://lemmy.world/post/6954944 which, of course, does not allow me to comment on since I'm not logged in. If I search for that post through Lemmy.ca I find the equivalent post with the URL: https://lemmy.ca/post/7377534 which now allows me to comment on it through my Lemmy.ca account.

Does any one know what's going on here? Clearly Lemmy.ca can "see" all the posts in the BoostForLemmy community on Lemmy.world. Even Liftoff manages to show all of them! So why does my browser and Boost for Lemmy not show everything unless I specifically search it out?
