A Farewell To PixyLab Edition

Top Story

  • Today has been a shitty day for the world in general.  Also I have to move out of my home for the past decade since I'm renting and the owner is putting it on the market.

    Might be looking to buy this time.  Move to a less expensive area with worse transport, as long as it has good internet access.

    Didn't think I could necessarily swing the deposit but I had completely forgotten about certain financial reserves that have just been sitting there while I've been working 48 hours a day.  So...  I can swing the deposit on a reasonable place.

    (You forgot you had how much money?  Yeah, I've been busy.  Also it's not exactly liquid.)

    Update: Or move out of Sydney entirely and save about a million bucks plus interest. That seems... Inviting.


  • Russia may attempt using cryptocurrency to evade the worst of the incoming sanctions.  (New York Times)

    I can see the headline now: Ruble falls to new low of 40 trillion to the dollar as Russia's crypto reserves drained by bot network Weed_Slut_420.

1 I'm sorry this is happening to you though, Pixy.  That really sucks.  Best of luck finding a place you want to truly call home.
I take the the contractual obligations of being a landlord don't transfer with the property sale to a new owner?  (That's what happens here.)

2 It's out of lease and I've just been continuing month-to-month, so there's no obligation beyond the 90 day notice.   If I still had a lease then they couldn't kick me out.  But I've been considering moving for a while - working from home all the time I need more room.

3 "It's out of lease and I've just been continuing month-to-month"
Around here, that usually causes your rent to go up about 20%.

4 Just finished a move here. Kind of nice to get into a nice new place, though it sucked actually packing everything up...

5 I'm up to 60 boxes of books and movies, plus a bunch of comics and magazine boxes I haven't opened in at least ten years. This weekend I'll be packing up all the film, camera gear, and computer stuff, and moving all the bookcases downstairs to get rid of through craigslist/goodwill/whatever.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
