2023.06.08 09:46 Dragmire_Afterlife This was such a great show and I can't believe the crowd was so small

OC vs Swerve was an absolute banger of a match and their feud is going to go crazy. Both of them are fantastic in the ring together and the crowd ate all of it up and were asking for more at the end.
The Tornado Tag match was super fun and again the crowd was constantly going crazy. The chop counting moment with Hook was hype as fuck because everyone around him was on their feet screaming at the top of their lungs
The BCC is consistently a highlight for me on AEW especially with Bryan currently on the announce desk like Regal was. Mox is my favorite wrestler, Claudio and Yuta are consistently great in the ring and Bryan is one of the greatest of all time. The faction works. It just works.
MJF and Adam Cole had everybody in the palm of their hands and produced a near perfect promo that should wipe away any doubt people had over Adam Cole (Bay Bay) on the mic. Hopefully Adam wins next week just barely so we get a proper title match for the belt. This should be the start of a legendary feud. Also the piss cup remark sent me lol.
The women's match was really good too. I don't think the fans will get tired of Kris ANY time soon and she will hopefully take that belt and run with it like Orange Cassidy has. Just taking on anyone who steps up to the plate.
Bullet Club Gold is growing on me and I think if the Gunns have actually joined it, this is the perfect next step for them. They are pretty good in the ring but always needed that little nudge in the right direction character wise so joining the Bang Bang Gang could be that nudge.
But above everything else, and everything else was really freaking good, they miked up the crowd perfectly so that couple thousand person crowd sounded like a packed arena and elevated every spot on the card by hearing the crowd be as hyped on TV as they were irl. We all know how much poor crowd miking has hurt shows even when reports from the actual venues are saying it was loud as hell and AEW 100% got it right tonight.

2023.06.08 09:46 ProdigalTrader (Please Help) Am I making a good decision to take TRT?

I got my blood work done. From my novice understanding everything was guchi, except my test. Here was my results; Male, 29yo Total Test 281 cFT 5.7 Estradiol 28.5 TSH/FT3/FT4 1.74/3.2/1.07 DHEA 301 HDL/LDL/TRIGs 1.74/ 3.2 / 1.07 Vitamin D/B12 36/714 SHBG 29.9 PSA 0.5 A1C 5.1
I was given 200mg TRT, HCG SQ Injection 50units and anastrozole tablets (if needed). Oh and some Vitamin D. My levels were also trash there. I've already been give one dose of TRT and have a month supply. Here's my hesitance on continuing and after thoughts, could be derived from ignorance but that's also why I'm here for a plethora of opinions from a niche audience; I was a competitive strongman competitor in college. Thru ages 19-26 I was placing in most contests. Always been naturally strong. Even now, I'm still strong albeit a bit fatter. 6ft, weighing >245lbs. I can easily rep 315 on squat, easily bench 225 for 12 reps, easily deadlift 405. None of those max effort cause I've got multiple past injuries that keep me from pushing myself to maxes. Low back issues. w/e. These days I lift with serious body builders. I'm not at their level, but I can almost keep up. Which I consider good seeing as I consider myself to be pretty out of shape. a year ago I was 195lbs, 6 pack pushing to see my 8 well, which I didn't even realize I had. Albeit- not as strong as I was when I was fatter. Only reason I'm mentioning all of this is I'm so flabbergasted that my test levels actually came back this low. I know I don't sleep enough (average 5-6 hours). I'm getting back to a more healthy state but haven't become strict with my diet; although usually I have better results by now. Going from middle weight to heavyweight is nothing new to me. I also work from home and definitely don't get enough sun. Could fixing these things further, on their own, bring my levels back to something more comparable with an athletic 29yo? I'm nervous cause I've never taken a test booster of any kind. Protein shakes, creatine, pre workout. All I've ever taken. I was competitive in an untested sport and winning medals. Idk what my levels were then, but it makes me feel like this test was somehow an outlier. I did go thru buying the prescribed medications because I just felt in the moment it's what I should do. But still. I'm cautious cause from my understanding if I continue taking this now, it's a lifelong commitment. And I guess most of all I just can't seem to find good info on a normal range of testosterone day to day or what a normal variance would be. And I'm paranoid the Doc is pushing me to this route for a few bucks in his pocket. I could be way out of line with any number of things in this post. Could be over thinking the entire thing. I will lastly add that I don't want to be average. I may not compete again (may) but I really like being in great shape. Being well above average in strength, even when cutting. And I would like to maybe body build or at least look like I do. So if I should take these results as a sign that I just had a huge drop off and should supplement to get to 1000 or more so I can hit the goals I have, I'm not outright opposed to taking any of the prescriptions. Although, it's like $180/mo. I mean I can afford it for sure, but my stingy ass can't help but recognize that's like a car payment and I imagine that only goes up from here. So what do you think. Lay it on me.

2023.06.08 09:46 Left_Communication60 RFID fob to track poultry house process compliance. New to group.

Hello. I am in the process of putting up a large capacity Poultry house (40K to 50K) capacity per building. Part of good farm management is adherence to periodic visual spot checks of livestock and confirming that the automated equipment is working properly, amongst other day to day tasks.
I tried looking online for a turn key solution to fit the general bill, but I could not seem to find one.
My question: Is there a turn key solution out there, both hardware and software, whose sensors I can locate in specific areas where one can scan their RFID TAG so that I can track that a process has been done or at the very minimum. I can place a particular staff in a specific location at a specific time?
If there isn’t a turn key solution. How hard would it be for me to repurpose an existing solution to satisfy my specific need.
Thank you for everyone’s input in advance.

2023.06.08 09:45 Meursault87 Assister à un match des 6 Nations 2024 à l'étranger

Bonjour à tous,
Nous sommes en train d'organiser, en famille, un voyage de quelques jours en Écosse, lors du match France - Écosse, le 10/02/2024.
D'après votre expérience, j'aimerais avoir votre avis sur deux points :
1) Nous envisageons d'assister au match au stade, à Murrayfield. Savez-vous s'il est difficile d'avoir des places ? Savez-vous à quelle période environ les billets sont mis en vente ? Je suis à l'affut sur le site scottishrugby.org mais peu d'informations disponibles pour le moment.

2) Si nous n'arrivons pas à avoir de places, nous irons voir le match dans un pub. Pour celles et ceux qui sont allés à Édimbourg, avez-vous des adresses de pub à me conseiller ?

Plus globalement, selon vous, quelle serait la meilleure expérience ? Voir le match dans le stade ou dans un pub ?

Merci pour vos retours d'expérience si vous avez fait un déplacement pour un match des 6 Nations au Royaume-Uni.

2023.06.08 09:45 No_Proof9682 A story about my crush and my best friend pt1

This story is back from 6th grade, there was a guy in my class(let us call him Jacob) who used to have a crush on me I didn't even know him before but in the seventh grade I came to know him got a tini tiny crush on him and told my best friend about it she was like "yeah good finally someone you can gush about all the time" then a few months later my crushes friends told me that he had a crush on me I didn't know what to do so I pretended that I didn't hear it and after that, a few weeks went by my crush on him was getting removed as I found someone else I liked(my current bf) and not to mention that the guy I used to have a crush on was one of my family friends. So I decided to tell my best friend about the new guys I started to like a little and she was like "Gurl I know that you are obsessed with Jacob are you sure? cus I see him staring at you from across the class". I was like yea I know that I had a crush on him for a while but now it is kinda going away. a month later my new crush went away to his native place for a while. I know this sound complicated but I kinda started to have a crush on Jacob again. so I decided to confess to him but I didn't do it right away this was the time around valentines Day so I decided to do it then but I feel ill for 4 days so after my cold a fever went away I was back to school and I realized that a BFF had gotten close to Jacob I thought that it is ok and all and my stupid ass didn't even confess to Jacob my BFF told me that she wanted to talk to jacob alone and I approved the place they went to talk was a very silent place there was no notice a few days later it was my BFFs birthday which is 3 days before mine Jacob wished her but not me then i realized that something fishy was going on i confessed my BFF then started acting weird then i realized the jacob was flirting with my friends i immediately confronted him then I shifted school now it has been 9 years I'm going to his house for dinner:!!!

2023.06.08 09:45 Mental_gaming_empire [ALL] Thoughts on Zelda timeline and placement of Totk and Botw, Major spoilers

I know no one probably cares anymore but I keep thinking about this and I want to say my thoughts on the Zelda timeline. I don't understand why people keep trying to connect Tears of the kingdom and Breath of the wild to the beginning so tightly. We have no reason to believe its connected, and even the developers say otherwise (that being it not only, reconnects timelines, but takes place far far later), I want to address these why these make sense.
So first on the reconnection of the timeline, we need to take note that we have no information on how long it is between Botw and the rest of the timeline. The only information we have is that its has information and entities from all of the different timeline splits. This, if the game is put so far into future that the timelines become indistinguishable, makes since. In theory if you give a truly infinite amount of time, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING can happen. Logically this not only connects to how its so far in the future of the timeline, but also of how it "re-converges" it. If a great enough amount of time passes then it can be stated that one day the timelines would become indistinguishable from one another since they posses equal traits. If we placed Botw, at the point it they become indistinguishable it will "re-converge" it, one way being physically re-converging it, while the other option is just that they become so indistinguishable amongst each other that there is no point in keeping recollection of the different realities since one would describe all of them. Now following this, it would be obvious that for each timeline to be equal, there would need to be a kingdom of Hyrule in each that is attacked by the Twilli, flooded by the gods, and then a world taken over by ganon. (events so similar that they slowly over time cause the realities to become indistingishable from one another). This implies multiple Hyrules in each timeline, if we take just the adult timeline, then the new Hyrule made by the hero and Zelda after the flood, would need to be either attacked by twilight, or destroyed and allowed for the Darkworld and the events of the downfall timeline to occur, (two more Hyrules needing to exsist at least). This same concept would be true for the other two timelines as well. Which points out that the 'founding' we see in Totk doesn't have any reason to be reconnected to the beginning of the timeline. or any other part of the timeline.
If this is true, which to me seems apparent, it implies the arrival of the Zonai is so far in the future that not only had the timelines already re-converged, and that any traces of the past timeline are only remembered as myth by whatever life is left. This means some time after the timelines 're-converged' something happened that left so little trace of the past that it was only seen as myth. Which if these myths are worshipped and the belief in Hylia is worshipped or at least is returning then it could explain why they recreated Hyrule, since that is the mythical and historic names and events they believe to have happened. The Zonai and lack of prestablished history, apart from myth and religions that are worshipped, show us that its been so long after the 'reconvergence' that we can't assume connections to the rest of the timeline. After all that it would seem that the curse demise left is still going and in this new singular timeline, which is just reforming hyrule with the zonai has to seal him away, Rauru doing so. This is the imprisioning war seen in Totk. Totk when you complete all the shrines gives you the heros aspect, which implies that the hero in the tapestry depicting the ancient calamity was Zonai, So the kingdom of Hyrule formed by the Zonai is the same one that the ancient Sheikah exsisted in. Implying that, just like in the the old timelines, the Sheikah served the royal family, the Zonai and or Hyrulian leadership. Since the Zonai were so advanced it could be reasoned that the sheikahs technology was either based off of or improved upon versions of Zonai technology, (like how the Sheikah were essentially the secret service of the old Hyrule family). Then eventually, one of or the only ancient calamity occurred, with the Sheikah being prepared and thwarting it. Then the 10,000 years eventually lead to the events of Botw, and subsequently tears of the kingdom.
This seems to me the most logical thing, since it not only explains how it seems like a soft 'reset' to the series but also has all the information and entities from the entire rest of the series ignoring the timeline splits. It serves as a developmental way to soft reset it since the past events barely matter apart from name sakes, and establishing what is consistent and will reappear. Those being, : Zelda, Link, Ganon, Hyrule, Master Sword, Possibly the sages, and the Triforce. Zelda, Ganon, and Link are cursed and bound to this cycle because the Triforce is timeless and fought over, the Master Sword is also Timeless since its made by the members of the cycle to gives the next ones the same chance, and if there's a Master sword and or Triforce there will most likely be a sage of light, and subseqently the other sages.
My Timeline theory is that there is such an inconceivable amount of time after the end of each time line that eventually they become indistinguishable from one another and that the kingdom of Hyrule we see in Totk and Botw isn't even remotely connected to the one of old. thus outlining a new Hyrule, new ancient history, and new stories only connecting to the old ones in familiar ways because of the myths of old, curse of demise, and legend(s) of 'Zelda'. (I'm sorry for the pun)

2023.06.08 09:45 robloxtix Wasted potential: I did this to myself and I can’t go back

Rant: I feel like I gave myself social anxiety and there’s nothing I can do now. I feel like there was nothing wrong with me in the first place but i did this to myself. I never had any traumatic or bad thing happen to me but I’m still socially anxious and closed off. I’ve always been shy and quiet my whole life, but it’s especially been bothering me in high school. During the pandemic, I stopped talking to friends because I was weirdly too anxious to join calls and convinced myself that they did not like me (i was so stupid and set myself up for failure). At the start of school (when school opened after the pandemic), I was in a good mood most of the time and talked sometimes (still a bit shaken from not talking to anyone for a year), but every time I joined a conversation just fixated on the mistakes I was making and started tensing up. This led me to start randomly leaving conversations and excluding myself from groups because it felt like too much. I had friends but I felt like too much of a burden, so I distanced myself and soon stopped talking to them regularly. I soon started isolating myself at school and i feel like this stunted my growth as a person. I feel there were so many potential friends I could have made, but I slowly pushed them away due to anxiety and was scared of how they would think of a person with no friends. There were many things I wanted to join but considered my anxiety and decided not to. Currently, I still have no friends at the end of my junior year.

2023.06.08 09:45 _DrNobody_ r/conspiracy claims the Jews orchestrated the killing of RFK and JFK. Multiple highly upvoted comments allege that the Jews control the world economy and government, also featuring Holocaust Denial!

And only the most vile and antisemitic comments that border on Stormfront-level discourse have been removed.
Which proves that they only moderate the bare fucking minimum to appear like they're not hateful bigots by only getting rid of the blatantly obvious shit while leaving behind the dogwhistle comments. However, checking ceddit/reveddit will reveal dozens of extremely vile comments.
That subreddit doesn't ban Nazis. They only hide them in the closet and tell them not to be overt about their views so that they don't get caught by the admins or the media. They've been doing this shit since the founding of Reddit, and they will never stop.
In fact, the moderators of r-conspiracy only scrubbed the comments of that post after r-AntiSemitismInReddit called it out, only further proving my point- they only moderate to save face, and nothing else.
In my opinion, that's fucking vile. Millions of brave people around the world put down their lives to end the Nazi war machine - they must be horrified knowing what kinds of people their children have become. It sickens me to no end.
Archive link:
I looked through the comments a second time after mentally readying myself. There's Holocaust denial and people screeching about anti-hate speech laws and antisemitism laws, and one person quotes that nazi pedophile (you know exactly what quote I'm talking about).
This is the most upvoted comment in the entire post:
Shocker: the Rothschild funded and esoterically established political zionist State of Israel caused the assassination of the Kennedy brothers, 9/11 and a litany of other conspiracies not accepted by the mainstream. Almost as if... as if Israel fits into a grand religious conspiracy to bring about Daniel's final world kingdom under the guise of "democracy"
Jeez, calm down. You don't need to hide "da joos" behind a million different dogwhistles. We get it.
If you talk about a certain group of people that definitely doesn't start with a J, you get into trouble
I'm talking about the Jews right now. Am I in trouble? No. We have a problem with hate.
Out of any nation they would do anything to arm themselves after being slaughtered. I do not blame them entirely. ( downvotes poor on in for mis interpreting it as supporting murder). Isreal sent in a group to South America and kidnapped a former ss officer to have them stand trial. It was a major controversy at the time. This also lead to the exposure that the US gov was employing former ss officers. There was a lot of valuable information and advances that could come from them. The Soviet Union did the exact same thing as well.
Should mention the programs hiring former ss officers was largely shut down as there was a growing concern for them to be working against the nations that hired them.
Hey dumbasses. Knowlede is power. PROVE MY FUCKING ASS WRONG.
Reasonable comment, yet it was voted to the bottom of the page. Here's the most upvoted reply:
downvotes poor on in for mis interpreting it as supporting murder
Nah, I downvoted because of this part
after being slaughtered
Literal fucking holocaust denial.
Here's some other Valuable Discussion:
You can demonise the Chinese, you can badmouth the Russians, you can question the Mongolian basket weavers, you can even pillory white people til the cows come home, but you can't... (insert something here), or you'll get reported and suspended.
Never surprises me. They are the real puppet masters. Antisemitism laws are placed to protect them being exposed.
Ah, the typical "JeWs CoNtRoL tHe WoRlD" narrative. This shit has been proven false since 1910. Boo-hoo, get better material. You've never moved on from Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
And for the record, people who spout "anti-white racism" get banned at a higher rate than people who post racism and antisemitism online. If anything, that's the real conspiracy. But they never talk about that, do they? Yawn these people are absolute fucking tools.
What a Cohencidence
G-Get it? Cohen's a Jewish name, hahaha aha! Why aren't you laughing?
Ah, I can't wait until the day that r-conspiracy finally gets the ban hammer.

2023.06.08 09:45 mylampisbroken Parking garage destroyed my car paint.

I have a 2021 chrysler 300 i’ve had less than two years. Last year i moved into a an apartment building near Chicago. I worked hard for my car and wanted to keep it safe, protected, and have a peace of mind so i paid the extra $125 a month to park in the buildings underground garage. I was unaware that this garage was falling apart until the damage was done… i woke up to flakes of cement/dust/dirt/asphalt or god knows what all over my car. Included in the stuff that fell from the ceiling is water consistently leaking. I assume it’s coming through the cracks from the parking lot above. i didn’t realize that this wasn’t regular water, but water mixed with cement or whatever the structure is made of… so the water dripped all over my car over the course of several months without my knowledge. (it’s dark down there) It wasn’t until i took my car out to wax it and do a deep clean i noticed the water marks would not come out. nothing gets it out.. i’ve tried every trick and every chemical. the paint is stained and discolored. The worst part is since the water was consistently leaking it actually formed two rust spots on the roof. When i told the apartment manager, they moved my spot in the garage, but it was just as bad the entire ceiling is falling apart. After complaining again they let me cancel the garage parking payment and i now park outside. I was told by my insurance company i could file a comprehensive claim but my deductible is still fairly high. I feel i shouldn’t have to pay for this at all? i paid 125$ a month for at least 8 months to have my new cars paint destroyed.. i was honestly devastated. Is this worth making the apartment take responsibility ?

2023.06.08 09:45 Spunkydooda Muscle soreness

I’m unsure if this is a symptom of b12 deficiency. Ive been a gym goer for many years and recently when all this suspected b12 deficiency occurred I’ve found that training has left me feeling very fatigued and aching for days after. For example if i trained legs in the past I would have DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) for around 2 days. These days I’m getting DOMS for up to 7 days! And I’m not lifting nowhere near as much or as frequent as I used to. I started self injecting 1500mg b12 last week every 3 days so far and I am feeling better, but still far off from how I used to feel.
So my question is does muscle soreness from lifting weights that lingers for days on end a part of b12 deficiency?

2023.06.08 09:45 Aggravating_Ad_5831 Workplace harassment

This takes place in NJ.
I’m a volunteer at a 100% volunteer organization. I have been there for about 18 months. During that time I have seen the president harass and bully people. I reported to the leadership and they took statements from those involved. Apparently an error was made by leadership while attempting to address this and so all of it was stopped and he was essentially never found of wrong doing.
Soon thereafter an error occurred which could have resulted in harm to someone using our services. I notified a supervisor of the error I found and recommended escalating this to the president. I also stated if the president wants to contact me regarding the error I’d be more than happy to tell him details.
The presidents response was to make derogatory comments about me to the people involved in the error. I notified leadership who has since gotten the organizations attorneys involved. The attorneys state it is not harassment because he did not use terms that fall within our organizations definition of harassment. They want to sit down to have a conflict resolution with myself and the president. They state the history of complaints against him does not matter either.
Do I have any options here? Should I retain an employment attorney?

2023.06.08 09:45 ProteinFarts123 Found pricing for a DMARC vendor which are pushed by Microsoft, and it is disgusting.

Been evaluating DMARC recently, and I couldn't find much information to help guide me when comparing options. So I tried to write down my thoughts in a way I would have found useful. I hope someone on here gets a bit of value out of it.
A few observations is that there is a huge disparity between bottom range vendors and top range vendors in terms of price, and that there is a corresponding disparity in terms of tool functionality and Trust-center maturity. Top tier vendors offer some cool functions, but the increase in price was hardly worth it.
Common DMARC vendor problems
Common problems among nearly all DMARC vendors we spoke to (with 1 exception) was that they all had a hard time giving us a fixed quote, claiming that they needed to run a PoC/Trial to analyze our volumes before being able to quote us. A few would provide gross estimates for us. I got a bit grossed out, because it felt like the sales reps we met with were trying to gauge how much money they'd be leaving on the table.
Bottom Tier DMARC vendor problems
The bottom tier were sketchy in terms of where support is located, where data is processed (issue especially if we collect Forensic reports) and had a difficult time answering questions on the robustness and maturity of their organizational/technical controls for whatever certifications they held. They also provided low-usability UI:s and underwhelming project management features.
One of the vendors even suggested we spin up 2 instances of their platform to manage active/inactive domains separately. I assume sales person was either a) incompetent or b) thought we had just jumped off the bus from Jokkmokk or c) the tool was horrendous.
Another consideration was that these vendors were mostly in start-up mode, and really pushed their logo-slides, indicating to me that they are desperately accumulating corporate value to become attractive acquisition targets. God forbid they'd be purchased by like DarkTrace or something.
I did a bit of quick and dirty math, and couldn't see how they were running sustainable business models. When they described their headcounts and I looked at the revenue generated with an average across their entire "we have this many customers" slide. Especially since a few of the logos these guys said were 'customers' are actually using their freemium/trial to monitor (checked with contacts at company's who were part of the logo-slides.).
These vendors cost next to nothing, but introduce a level of risk I was not happy with.
Top Tier DMARC Vendor problems
3 of the vendors we looked at fit into this category, and the prices were absolutely outrageous. As in +30x higher prices. Than the other vendors. 2 of these were more forthcoming about price estimates, and the last one did the thing where the sales rep was really shady about the pricing so we finally had enough (I found their price list through google dorks and nearly puked).
However, the 2 vendors who were more forthcoming about their prices advised us that there is a mandatory Managed Service tacked onto the DMARC tool. The managed service sounded nice (bi-weekly/monthly project calls with a consultant from their side, effectively brining our time investment down by from ~6-8h / week to ~1-4h / week, which is helpful due to backlog). But we would be unable to unsubscribe from the managed service even after achieving p=reject and just monitoring.
The vendor who's prices nearly made me puke literally had 1 unique selling point compared to peers. The ability to generate DKIM keys through their console. Helpful, sure. But it absolutely does not merit a 2x higher price than the other 2 Top Tiers. The issue I have here is that this was the vendor pushed by Microsoft, and it really got under my skin that the sales rep almost took it for granted that the business was theirs because of the recommendation by MSFT. It made me wonder how many deals these guys get for outrageous price points by buyers who don't know any better.
These vendors cost a bunch, but offer the level of risk I am OK with introducing
What did we end up doing?
One of the vendors who didn't fit into either Top Tier or Low Tier fulfilled our criteria;
  1. Mature trust-center backed by good contracts, DPA:s ISO-certs and SOC-II etc. Sales rep and Engineer could speak towards various elements and were happy to make introductions to their CISO:s direct reports for more information.
  2. Price point was in-between Top tier & Bottom Tier.
  3. Price transparency and Predictability (They could provide prices based on # active domains + number of employees, irrespective of email volumes & sending services)
  4. Managed service portion could be removed upon renewal (once every 12 months) and the price effectively goes down by 50%.
  5. The sales rep was slightly less sleazy, but maybe that was because their licensing model was simpler? He was also transparent when we asked about recent negative feedback about their support.
  6. UI is decent & Integrated project management section so that tasks created in other sections of the console are populated into the project management time-line and assigned to an owner.
  1. I don't want to break any policy here. So won't post a link to the price-list I found via dorks. I found it on a publicly facing governmental digital market place, published by one of the vendor's partners. Example:
    1. 3-10 Domains + <5 Sending Services scales from £17.5K / year up to 3-10 Domains + <27 Sending services for £100K / Year. And god help you if you have +50 domains.
  2. Don't want to mention which vendor we went with in the end. But we got 25 Domains + Unlimited volume + unlimited sending services for ~ €12K / year.
    1. As a comparison this is 10x the price of the Low-tier vendors, and 35% of the price of the most expensive vendor (when accounting for our number of sending sources, email volume and domains)
    2. Year 1 we added on Manage Services to help with our backlog, which we plan on cutting away once p=reject can be safely activated (expected time frame ~6 months -- Which realistically means ~8 months). At this point our annual bill goes down from €18K to €12K / Year.
  3. A key consideration that I found tricky before finding the vendor we went with, was trying to forecast expected email volumes since the company is planning on entering new markets, with big marketing pushes. We could have woken up one day and gotten a "true-up" call with up-to a 6x license price increase if our outbound volumes exceeded 2.5million emails. (I don't see that happening anytime soon, but I'd hate to forget about this as the company grows).
  4. Getting approval for the spend was done together with marketing, and we split it 50/50. We basically asked our CMO-lite what would happen if their marketing emails went to junk-folders or were rejected outright because one of their marketing services was unaccounted for.
    1. Convo went something like:
      1. "What's your worst-case projection for this initiative?"
      2. "It's x% of target"
      3. "Okey, does that worst-case projection account for if your email marketing ends up in junk folders?"
      4. "Ye... erhh.. end up in junk folders...?"
      5. (Marketing now has a vested interest in being open about the crap they use/want to get, and CMO-lite has raised this twice with her team so far).
Sorry for any spelling/grammar issues, guys. English =/= first language. Some of the information here could be inconsistent between territories/markets. Hope someone finds it helpful.

2023.06.08 09:44 Significant_Step6388 Why people are so rude !!!!

So this is the story when I was 15 years old. I was in 10th standard and I used to have a crush on a girl. She was really pretty. And I used to look at her every time. I wanted to talk to her but I didn’t have the courage to go and talk to her. So 2-3months passed by and I didn’t tell anyone that I have a crush on her because you know when you tell your friends this kind of thing they starts doing stupid things like screaming your name in front of her etc. But one day one of my class mate get to knows that I have a crush on her. And this classmate of mine knows my crush he used to talk to her. So he said to me that bro I will talk to her about you. And I said that no bro leave i. It is just a crush I will get over it after some time [ I WAS LYING]. But somehow he convinced me and I thought what the worst thing she can say to me is [NO] . So I said to my friend go and talk to her and he talked to her and he said that she wants to talk to you and I said ok. So at the end of the day whole school was gathered in the hall for some announcement and I was standing 2 or 3 places behind her. And I heard my friend saying to her that he is the guy I was talking about him [referring to me]. And she looked at me and said to me “HAVE YOU SEEN YOUR FACE, YOU UGLY PIECE OF SHIT, I WILL HIT YOUR FACE WITH MY SHOE IF YOUR EVER LOOKED AT ME AGAIN” And children started laughing. I can’t tell you how I felt that day. My eyes started to fill with tears somehow I managed not to cry .but when I reached home I cried my heart out. I could not forget about that day till now. I am[ 22 NOW] and still whenever I think about this my eyes starts to fill with tears and I start feeling low.

2023.06.08 09:44 Affectionate_Emu5292 Am I overthinking?

I need some advice regarding my friendship with my BFF. (A long one but please read)
My BFF and I both met and married our men around the same time (with 3-6 months of each other. She got married first and they became a blended family with no kids together. my husband and I got engaged, then I got pregnant and we married after our son was born. My husband and I are a blended family. 1 together and he has 3 and I have 2 . Our kids love each other and they all love to love on their baby brother.
My BFF & I talk all the time and of course vent about our husbands but I do keep some stuff reserved for just my marriage. Lately I have noticed some things with her. Idk if she’s in competition with me or jealous but idk how to bring it up without trying to accuse her of anything in case I’m overthinking it (I’m naturally a overthinker and an empath).
Whenever I say I want something or show her something online that ima ask my husband for, she says her husband already bought it for her and it’s on the way. Now I don’t mind us having the same things ( I know companies make hundreds of products) but it’s the tone. Almost as if she is saying “haha I got it first”.
Now I wasn’t the one who originally noticed it. My sister (my BFF, my sister and i have a group chat) & my husband both brought it to my attention at separate times and that’s what made me start thinking is something else going on.
She has vented to me about her husband and how detached he is and they are pretty much like roommates. They don’t have sex besides once every other month they have been married going on 2 years. I, of course gave healthy suggestions, like role play, date nights, getting it in randomly in the laundry but she refuses to even try these things. She complains that my husband and I have sex too much but in the same breath will say she wish her and husband had sex as much as me and mine. (The question came up during a game night for her 21 yr olds birthday). Sometimes I feel like I’m giving advice but she won’t take it. I have started asking her during conversation “do you want my advice or am I just being a listening ear” so I can know how to support her.
Sometimes I can’t even tell her my good news because she always make me feel bad for having some many good things going on in my life. I can say “oh I can’t hang Saturday, we have date night” and she will say “eww y’all always together, what do you need a date night for” or “I came first, cancel your plans and hang with me instead”. The few times her and her husband have a date night planned and I asked her to hang out, I usually say “enjoy and have a shot for me”. I don’t get the problem of actually enjoying spending time with my husband. We have very busy lives so little things like going to target together makes me happy and we just like to talk. My husband and I can laugh and talk for hours. She gets upset when she calls and he’s around. I have to explain to her we were just having a convo when she called and she will say something smart like “well call me when you have time to talk to me which will probably be tomorrow cause your always talking to him”.
I guess I’m getting at the energy is not being reciprocated.
Recently my husband got a job offer and doing all the HR stuff to start soon and will be making almost $80k a year. I work full time as well but also received a job offer so our income will about well over $100k. Me being excited about this because I can finally rebuild our savings and save to purchase land so we can build our home from the ground up, I told my BFF. Not trying to rub it in but just wanting to share the good news with her because I was so excited and she says “must be nice”. I ignored it and didn’t say anything else. During this same conversation we started talking about Amazon and spending habits. Her and her husband were at our home and my husband heard me say I was hungry. While he was talking to her husband, he walks over and hands me his wallet. I asked him what it was for and he tells me to get dinner for everyone (them included). I asked for a spending limit and he said “just get whatever you want and make sure it’s enough for everyone”. Me and her leave and she says “must be nice to have a man just spoil you. The fact you can touch his wallet. I bet you have access to his accounts”. I quietly confirmed that I did and she goes on a rant about how I always ended up with the good ones and she gets the bums that have her paying all the bills. I just changed the subject to the music on the radio.
There has also been other smart remarks but I over look it and say to myself “she my best friend and she didn’t mean it like that” but I think I need to start taking it how she said it.
Am I crazy? I love her to death but it’s starting to hurt my feelings and effecting my mental health.

2023.06.08 09:43 gibbermagash Is the song "The becoming" (by Nine Inch Nails) about Agent cooper losing control over his dark side and becoming Mr C.?

The Lyrics:
I beat my machine
It's a part of me, it's inside of me
I'm stuck in this dream
It's changing me, I am becoming
The me that you know He had some second thoughts
He's covered with scabs
He is broken and sore
The me that you know He doesn't come around much
That part of me isn't here anymore
All pain disappears
It's the nature of, of my circuitry
Drowns out all I hear
No escape from this, my new consciousness
The me that you know
He used to have feelings
But the blood has stopped pumping
And he is left to decay
The me that you know
Is now made up of wires
And even when I'm right with you
I'm so far away
I can try to get away
But I've strapped myself in
I can try to scratch away The sound in my ears
I can see it killing away All of my bad parts
I don't want to listen But it's all too clear
Hiding backwards inside of me I feel so unafraid
Annie, hold a little tighter I might just slip away
It won't give up, it wants me dead
Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
It won't give up, it wants me dead Goddamn this noise inside my head
Twin Peaks s2 ended in 1991 The Downward Spiral came out in 1994
The thing that always stuck out to me was the name Annie in this song.
Why that name?
NIN did the cover song for Mr C in the third season.
The Tulpas being made of other worldly machinery.
S3 The fireman telling agent Cooper he is very far away.
The scratching sound that cues certain important events.
Idk, maybe it's just my mind trying to find patterns but it's a fun thought at least.
Just imagine it's the 90s, and you're sitting in a diner in Los Angeles, and the booth next to you is where David Lynch and Trent Reznor talk about all this kind of stuff late into the night.

2023.06.08 09:43 sunshineandmoss Question for hospital workers especially EMTs

How much access to different hospital areas do EMTs have? I know its a super weird question and idk if this is the right place to ask but idk where else to go and I have no idea how to google it.
Context: I am writing a book where an EMT realizes one of the surgeons working at the same hospital as him is a vampire. He wants to spy on the vampire while at work (i know he wouldnt have much time to do this). I am wondering what it might be possible for him to see? Would he be able to possibly spy on a surgery or would access to those areas be too restricted? Is it possible he could encounter him outside of hallways and break rooms or no?
Also if anyone has other advice for writing in a hospital setting specifically in the context of these characters please let me know! I am of course doing my own research but its hard for that to replace people talking about it while knowing in what context I need information for.
Thank you!

2023.06.08 09:43 Katylar Best way to get a housing loan, given that I have bad credit due to lockdown?

I'm a relatively high-income earner (not a millionaire by any means, but I take home 6 figures a month).
I've been meaning to buy a home for a while now. Any advice on how I can get a housing loan?
My credit is really bad due to issues that cropped up during the pandemic (my business went kaput, and I ended up defaulting on the company's loans, etc. Long story, involving pierced corporate veils due to directly paying payroll from my own account, etc.)
I keep trying to find an actual rent to own property listing (i.e. wherein I rent the place and title stays with the owner, and they transfer to me once I've paid off the entire balance+interest). Most 'rent to own' listings aren't really like that--they're outright purchase-with-financing...which is literally just buying with a mortgage.
So far, my options seem to be:
  1. Rich Private Lender who will either lend me the funds or they'll buy the property and I'll 'rent-to-own' from them.
  2. Bank Lending/Loan Officer who is willing to look the other way and approve my application
  3. I start selling drugs or launch and OnlyFans (LOL)
Any advice?

2023.06.08 09:41 birbbirbbirbbirbbirb He didn’t cheat but I feel like he did

For starters, I am fully aware that I’m insecure. I’m starting therapy in a few weeks. My bf and I had our first date in April of last year. It was great- we spent hours just talking and getting to know each other and both agreed to see each other again. I had been casually texting a few other guys I met on Tinder, two of whom I had gone on dates with. I stopped speaking to them after my date with my now bf because I felt they didn’t compare to him and I didn’t want to waste anyone’s time. That was on a Friday and I didn’t hear from him all weekend so I texted him Monday. We made plans for a second date on the next coming Friday. The second date came and it went great. I ended up staying over at his place.
We grew closer over the course of about a month before we became official. It had been my assumption that he had not seen anyone else since our first date since he spoke about how much he instantly liked me and the connection he felt. I found out around the two month mark that he had been texting a girl I used to be very close friends with (they met on tinder as well and had gone on a date before our first date), and the Tuesday after our first date, she came over and they slept together. And then 3 days later, he slept with me.
I only found out about this because I posted a story with him on my Snapchat and she told me and we laughed it off. When I ask him about it, he tried to lie his way out of it and then felt guilty and ashamed. I know he didn’t “cheat”, but I felt cheated out of the idea I had that we were mutually attracted to each other and I was special to him. He had made me feel really special in the beginning, and that event sort of spiraled into other little lies I have caught him in and overall affecting my self esteem. I also have it in my head that he’s with me because I’m the second best option since she stopped texting him after they slept together but I was still there.
I recognize that I am an adult and my mental health/self confidence is my problem, so I try not to bring any of this up to him or ask for reassurance, but something about it just does not sit right with me. He has withheld the truth about other things involving his past and even directly lied. I know the past is the past, but I think I deserve a direct answer when it pertains to our relationship and my physical health since he didn’t get tested after he slept with her and before he slept with me. We’ve been together for over a year now and I love him a lot, but I keep comparing myself to the other girls he has been with and especially the ones he lied about. I don’t want to break up but I don’t want to feel like this. How would you deal with this? TL;DR - my boyfriend slept with someone I know after our first date, didn’t get tested before sleeping with me, lied, and now I’m overthinking everything
