I gave into despair when the shuttleworth grant didn't come through
last year. I'm glad y'all keep slogging on.

I started at this as a third world problem. Living in the first world
is thus far proving too expensive.
Unless I get my act together on $dayjob soon even moving back to
Nicaragua will be impossible. (and Nica is currently very dicy

I'm still primarily motivated by fixing the internet outside the usa.
My daydream, once I had
enough cash in the bank or some (say, 50k) maintenence level of
income,  was to sail
from pacific island to pacific island, updating uplinks along the way,
finishing up writing a few papers,
contemplating some other currently insoluable networking problems -
like routing.

These days... I don't know. I'm at a cusp. If I keep failing at dayjob
for another month I'll try to find something
outside this field entirely. Last year, being dead broke, I did
construction for a while. It was good for me.

The only idea I have at the moment is to stand outside the ftc's offices in
a zoot suit with guitar and empty violin case.

Obama's FTC seemed like a better place than the FCC for many issues.
