Posted 16 May 2013I have never played Skyrim and have no intention to ever play Skyrim.
PS: what is Skyrim?
this is not sarcasm, I truly have no idea what it is.
I also didn't know what Skyrim was, then I took and arrow in the knee and started playing. Don't worry. It happens to all of us sooner or later...
Posted 15 May 2013When I moved out of one place, they tried suing me for 15,000 in damages. Some of which did actually exist, like the kitchen cupboards being destroyed. Thing is they were destroyed because a second hurricane hit, leaked water through the roof, because the landlord didn't take any precautions after shingles were torn up after a previous hurricane.
Thing is said landlord got over zealous and started including damages that didn't exist. Like that I had put a hole in a door to a closet near the front bathroom... a closet that doesn't exist.
I had a friend write up a letter on her office's letter-head. Scared the landlord away right quick.
Yeah, point taken. I wasn't thinking when I wrote that. An absentee landlord most certainly is a slum lord; however, all landlords try to maximize profits by doing the least amount of work possible. I guess some just don't do enough.
The landlord surely sounds like a douche, but if you had an AC that wasn't functioning properly, and you knew it would cause water damage, why did you keep using it? I doubt there is a court in the world that would side with you on that one. It is quite common for landlords to just make up allegations of damage., I hear it all the time from prospective tenants when I show my places.
I don't think you scared him off, as it cost him only somewhere around $100 to sue you in small claims court, if you live in the U.S. The more likely scenario, which most landlords understand, is that even if you win your case against the tenant for damages, your likelihood of collecting any of the judgement is near zero, which is why I usually don't even bother with legal action that is not eviction related. If someone moves out and something is damaged, I just take out what it cost to repair it. No big deal. I don't let places fall apart, so I have never dealt with leaky roofs, etc.
Posted 14 May 2013Create a new package under your src folder and read them from there, or create a folder in your project's root folder and read them from there.
Posted 13 May 2013You mean slum lord?
Nope. Being a slum lord attracts the trouble makers. You'd be working many more hours than 10 per week in the slums. Dealing with poor people who can't or won't pay would be a 40hr per week job, then there's the other trouble like fighting and drugs, etc. Average apartments in middle and working class areas only.
Posted 13 May 2013Real estate rentals. Make more than a senior software developer, working less than 10 hours per week.
