Four Atlanta Thanks and a Question

Thank you to ...

1) ... our new apartment for the free architectural drawing of the Golden Gate Bridge that looks quite nice on the wall,
2) ... our neighbor who has an unsecured wireless internet connection and lets us use it while waiting for Comcast to bless us with their presence,
3) ... our new building, for now making us neighbors with the owner of Jake's Ice Creams & Sorbets. I love ice cream!
4) ... and the streets of Atlanta for providing me with some free lumber ("Free" is what the sign said) for a corner computer desk.

Now, the Question...

...what advice would you have for someone renting an apartment that has an angled floor? Our whole building has settled and our place is affected. The floor slopes noticeably and affects the desk the most. What common/cheap solutions are there to be found?

I know I can't be the only one here in town (or many other places) that has this problem.

Welcome to Atlanta!

I'm not sure what to recommend about your leveling problem (lots of matchbooks?) but we do have IKEA, Lowe's and Home Depot around here. Perhaps they'll have inexpensive options for your problem.

You know you're definitely in Atlanta when you ask a question about design or home improvement, and the first answer out of the person's mouth is "Oh, well you should check out Ikea."

Glad the move went well. Welcome.
