squiggy: I understand exactly what you're writing about. I've been there myself, and am damn close to it right now, in large part because miguel said some things to me last night on IRC about inkjet printer drivers which strongly suggest that he values corporate support over high quality and involvement from free software hackers. That's not the only thing that's stressing me right now, but you know, just add it to the pile.

What I've done before, and what I've just now scheduled for Sept 15, is to take a walk down the Pacific coast. In past years, I've walked from Pacifica to around Half Moon Bay. It can be done in one long day, or, better yet, over a few days, staying in hostels on the way. There is some beautiful coastline, very fine beaches, excellent mountain trails with wildflowers and breathtaking vistas, and, most importantly, a chance to get the hell away from it all. The last couple of times I've done it, it's restored me to sanity. Ten more days. I can hardly wait.
