  • I'm pretty sure the real estate agent for the house I talked about yesterday is playing games with me - I can see the Internet Archive, I know how long this place has been on the market, sure you have a hot prospect right this minute and are expecting to exchange contracts shortly, I believe you, millions wouldn't - but I don't have time so you're off the list.

    Which leaves me with something that's cheaper and doesn't appear to need any work. Still with the old-school high ceilings, and 50% larger than my current place while being 60% cheaper. Maybe not my dream home but a huge improvement and the mortgage payments on a 10-year loan will be less than not much more than* my current rent.

    * Stupid mortgage calculator.


  • The ECASH bill in the US House of Representatives aims to introduce a government-controlled non-blockchain anonymous digital currency. (CoinDesk)

    What?

    It would be legal tender, support peer-to-peer transactions, and would not have either a centralised or distributed ledger. Like cash, the ledger would be after the fact, not part of the currency.

    I'm going to have to read up on this because this sounds (a) like a good idea and (b) impossible.

Had to get up during the night because rain was coming down sideways and my front hall was flooded.

Had to pause writing this post because rain was coming down sideways and my front hall was flooded again.

Gotta get out of the flood zone.
