Unless you've used the same password for gmail as for whichever site has been hacked, it shouldn't matter. I found my gmail address, but the password had never been used at Google. The problem is if you've reused the password on a bunch of sites where your email address can be used as login.

Same here. My email address, but a password I use for throwaway sites that I don't care about accessing.

Here I am, in downtown Richmond... ...3Mbps DSL.

You do know that they are talking about the average speed for the state..?

The way it breaks down in Virginia is:

You (and everybody else) = 3 Mbps The CIA in Langley = 2000 Tbps

State average = 13.7 Mbps

Though your post was likely meant to be humorous, there is some truth to it. The infrastructure here in NoVa is definitely influenced by the heavy presence of intelligence work.

I am left wondering how it could be $35K / cottage in Florida. Maybe it's to go off-grid altogether, thus requiring storage?

I'm not sure what a "cottage" is in Florida, but if I look at local prices (Central Europe), I see offers for off-grid PV installations (with storage) for cottages starting around $7k.

Florida likely needs a lot more A/C than Central Europe.

Heat, humidity, bugs, snakes, rabies. Also invasive species; the Nile Monitor Lizard looks like a real sweetie.

There's lots more (potential for) mosquito-borne disease -- yellow fever epidemics in the past, dengue showing up in Key West lately, and encephalitis is more common there than elsewhere. Termites are much more destructive down there, too. Sinkholes are common enough that you see billboard advertisements for lawyers to help sue for damage to your home.

Plus you're not the only person who had the bright idea of retiring there.

You forgot - Rick Scott, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio,
