It took long enough, but I’ve finally got the aftermath of the flooding.  About two weeks ago a hot water pipe broke underneath my floor and flooded my bedroom and bathroom.  Well, soaked through the carpet is a bit more like it for the bedroom, but anything that was directly on the floor got soaked.  Not a fun way to arrive home at 11pm.  Luckily management worked fast and by the next day had ripped out the carpet,  fixed the pipe and patched up the concrete floor:

However, my phone line started getting horrible static after this, so bad that it was useless for either voice or data. The phone company finally made it out today to figure out what was causing it, and it turned out to be a mysterious cable from the bedroom phone jack that went somewhere under the carpet. Odds are either the water or the carpet installation screwed it up, and since I have no idea where it went they disconnected it and everything works. Now I can freely whinge about things on the internet again…
