commented on Another Group of Neighbors Fighting an Apartment Building Because It's "Out of Scale"
@26: ah yes, Houston. Terrible, awful Houston. Stinky unzoned Houston with its average 2BR rental price that's 30% lower than Seattle's and median home sale price that's half of Seattle's.
God forbid Seattle lower itself to take lessons from a city in a red state that somehow managed to have a booming economy and population while remaining substantially more affordable than Seattle.
commented on So Why Are LGBT People Are Moving To Red States?
It's the housing, stupid.
I mean yes, obviously the fact that (non-trans, ahem) queer people are now (somewhat) less likely to be violently assaulted and/or murdered outside of a few core urban areas is a factor as well. But SF, Seattle, LA and NYC are currently all being turned into gated communities / museums for the benefit of anyone who bought property there 20-40 years ago, which means that anyone without a trust fund who wants to live in an historic "gayborhood" is shit outta luck. So, yeah, Louisville is pretty cheap...
commented on Apple Corporation Breaking Phones That Receive Unauthorized Repairs
So... it's a good thing if the police or your abusive ex confiscate/steal your iphone and attempt to circumvent the fingerprint scanner on it by replacing it with one that always said "yes" and the phone just says "fine"?
The obtuse error code is embarrassing for Apple, but the actual behavior is 100% correct and I would be horrified it it were anything else.
