It's Hebrew for double colon apparently, it came from the Israeli Zend framework PHP was based on. Some dev thought it would be funny to add an error in a language other than English.

Can you tell a Canadian apart from a northern American?

Basically the same amount of difference. (There is one)

I tried, but it wasn't available as a backend for some reason. I'm on the latest version, a couple patch releases after the one where support for Proton Drive was added.

Yup, soon, I'm excited 🤞

Hello!

As per the title, one feature I miss from Gmail and similar is the ability to automatically upload files greater than 25mb to a cloud destination. I wonder if it's already possible and I've simply missed it, or if it's in the works.

This would have the added benefit of giving purpose to my Proton Drive, which sits useless and empty as a Linux user as I can't really sync it to anything besides my phone.

I mean, it is a bad thing when you can't relate to anything. We should strive for age diversity to account for this.

That's really creepy, I forgot Google did that. Been with Kagi for a while.

IMO the license footer is a bit sovereign-citizen-y, and likely unenforceable.

Man, y'all shamelessly reposting from Reddit now?

[-] isVeryLoud@lemmy.ca 5 points 1 day ago

TIL. Enjoy the soup!

Mod. Sucks that we can't just post to our own communities without the mod label following us around.

I created this community as shrinkflation is getting really bad in Canada, especially in grocery stores.

This community is probably going to lean towards being Canada-centric, but shrinkflation posts from all over are welcome!

Shrinkflation is defined as a reduction in size or quality of a product, for a same or higher price for a given quantity.

From Wikipedia:

In economics, shrinkflation, also known as the grocery shrink ray, deflation, or package downsizing, is the process of items shrinking in size or quantity, or even sometimes reformulating or reducing quality, while their prices remain the same or increase. The word is a portmanteau of the words shrink and inflation.

[...]

Shrinkflation allows companies to increase their operating margin and profitability by reducing costs whilst maintaining sales volume, and is often used as an alternative to raising prices in line with inflation. Consumer protection groups are critical of the practice.

Shrinkflation is a rise in the general price level of goods per unit of weight or volume, brought about by a reduction in the weight or size of the item sold. The price for one piece of the packaged product remains the same or could even be raised. This sometimes does not affect inflation measures such as the consumer price index or Retail Price Index, i.e. it might not increase in the cost of a basket of retail goods and services, but many indicators of price levels and thus inflation are linked to units of volume or weight of products, so that shrinkflation also affects the statistically represented inflation figures.

The packaging is also much flimsier, it's very floppy. The old packaging feels normal.

This is the same toothpaste I usually buy, and the new one even claimed to be a "value pack" on the box! As far as I remember, the old pack was just a regular pack.

$5.47 CAD for the new pack, price unknown for the old one, purchased around August 2023.

One of them is whitening while the other is not, but they are generally the same price and format.

Can't wait to fully migrate to Proton.
