Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

My landlord raised my rent again, as per his right to make yearly cost-of-living adjustments. So I'm looking for a new place to live. I just put up a Craig's List post. Anyone know of a shared apartment or room in Berkeley for $550 or less per month (plus utilities), starting in January or so? Please tell me.
