The hunt for a dream free software telecommute is over, at least for now. Without success. :( I guess that's what comes of being merely very good, instead of "we must hire this person whatever it takes" good.
Instead, I'm moving back into a cubicle farm, this time for Bell & Howell in Ann Arbor. (It's not free software, but at least it's Unix.) Which means I need to wrap up my current job, find a house, sell our house, and move. Now. Ideally, to be complete before early May and the new baby arrive. Did I mention that this would be exactly the time for all of the kids, Nancy, and myself to get hit by the winter cold epidemic?
See above. The sudden attack of Real Life(tm) has left precious little hacking time. I did get started on the goat book ("GNU Autoconf, Automake, and Libtool"), which is a fantastic resource for what is truly a black art. Now I just need to finish and get my hands dirty doing some autoconfiscating/libtoolizing.
