  • Locking our porch: update

    Followup to more landlord craziness: locking our porch.

    When I came home yesterday I found our bolt had been removed and the duct tape was gone. We had also received the following letter.

    Apt 3
    63 Pinckney St
    Somerville MA 02144

    Back door 3rd Floor

    Hello All

    I am surprised you see it fit to tell the Handyman that I am locking the back door but you failed to tell him that you are responsible for the locking of the back door at night for your wicked act of opening the door when I am in the bathroom and in the middle of the night to harass me as you do with radiation.

    I wrote you a letter, I can send you a copy if you lost yours to warn you that I will take away that privilege if you continue your actions against me. LEGALLY YOU CANNOT ADD OR FIX ANYTHING TO THIS PROPERTY WITHOUT MY WRITTEN PERMISSION.

    I WILL ENDEAVOR TO OPEN THE PORCH DOOR IN THE MORNING OR WHEN I FINISH USING THE BATHROOM AND CERTAINLY WHENEVER I AM GOING OUT. AT NIGHT, IT WILL BE LOCKED BEFORE I GO TO BED. IF YOU NEED IT OPENED AT OTHER TIMES WHEN IT IS LOCKED KINDLY JUST CALL ME OR WRITE A NOTE.
    I have been extremely good to you all and generous in many ways. I am here for you. By the way, kindly rinse your milk bottles, canned food. When you were the only tenants your cans and bottles where never rinsed. The City wants them cleaned before putting in the recycling bin. I am here for you.

    Owner

    (Also, as a helpful commenter discovered yesterday, our landlord is being foreclosed on.)

    Experiences in raising children in shared housing

    Sometimes I see posts about people’s hope to raise children in a group housing situation, and it often seems overly optimistic to me. In particular they seem to expect that there will be more shared childcare than I think should be expected. Today I talke…

    It's common to see people advocate for learning skills that they have or using processes that they use. For example, Steve Yegge has a set of blog posts where he recommends reading compiler books and learning about compilers. His reasoning is basicall…

    EDT with updating double counts

    I recently got confused thinking about the following case: Calculator bet: I am offered the opportunity to bet on a mathematical statement X to which I initially assign 50% probability (perhaps X = 139926 is a quadratic residue modulo 314159). I have acce…
