I've been meaning to update my Advogato Profile for well over SIX YEARS!
Heh. Time Is Fun When You're Flying!
I only just now did so update it.
My previous draft had me just arrived in Vancouver, British Columbia, having left my then-wife but now ex-wife Bonita Hatcher behind in Truro, Nova Scotia in hopes of making a better life for both of us.

After I left Atimi, I moved back to California, this time to Sunnyvale in Silicon Valley, then later San Jose, Salmon Creek, Washington, Redmond, Washington for a very brief contract with The Borg Collective I have no doubt whatsoever the very worst job I have known in all of my fifty years, then back to Salmon Creek, then to Santa Cruz, California, then to Portland, Oregon and now back in Salmon Creek.
I just three weeks ago scored quite a good remote C++ Linux Debugging consulting gig, so Real Soon Now I'll be moving out of my mother's basement when I rent my own place somewhere close to, but not actually directly within Portland's Pearl District, where most of my potential consulting clients now lay.
