  • It's the weekend again - somehow - and that means it's Question and Answer time. Take one of the bottles from the basket, put your question inside, and cast it into the waters. It will probably just wash straight back up on the beach, but if it does make it here to PixyLab I will attempt to answer.

  • No news on house #3 yet. The one that was previously #4 on my shortlist has actually sold, but I wasn't actively pursuing that one because while the renovated interiors were first rate, the location (between an iron foundry and an artillery range) was less than ideal.

    GitLab had a default test password configured for accounts registered via external authentication providers. They say no accounts have been compromised, but the bug affects not only the cloud service, but the paid on-premises version and the free open source edition, so if you run your own it's time to update.

    Also, put it behind a firewall. At my day job your VPN account has to be configured to grant access the the GitLab server before you can do anything at all.

Definitely Not Tech News

  • Some of you expressed interest in the cover home of The Concise Dictionary of Regrettable Architecture (4th ed, Stodder & Houghton, 3716pp) as mentioned in yesterday's Pixy Goes House Hunting item.

    Well, here's one of the bathrooms:

    After looking at several late 19th to early 20th century homes that have been lovingly restored (and one that is a complete dump but is heritage listed and so frozen in time as a complete dump) this place comes across like a big bowl of curried corn flakes.

    Every single pixel asks the question why?

    And that's the bathroom they they selected to show off the property. If this was a modest three-bedroom place passed down in the family for 65 years and now on the market for the first time, sure. Buy it, replace the kitchen, bathroom, and carpet, strip off the wallpaper and paint everything left white, and you'd have yourself a little gem.

    For this one, the owner would have to be someone prepared to drop an additional half a mil to gut it and rebuild from the inside out.

    In other words, not me.
