Right now, I have enough funds left over to be able to provide basic bug-fix support for MaraDNS and Deadwood on the mailing list for three and a half months. In other words, if I get non-security bug reports or other significant support requests every month, my funding will dry out in mid-March.
I currently do not have enough funding to implement split horizon or any other new features. If these features are desirable, please send me a private email and we can discuss rates.
This year, I have already, within a month, scheduled multiple face-to-face interviews. This, in spite of the fact that I started my job search in the slow-to-hire holiday season. The job market has definitely improved in the last year (it helps that I no longer need to work remotely, but still). Other friends who were struggling in the post-2008 crash have already found jobs.
For anyone who has been looking for a job and has given up hope: It's a good time to hit the pavement and look for work again.
A few days ago, I went to Costco and saw a 1080p video camera for under $100. Not only does this camera have higher resolution than the $50,000 camera I was looking at a decade ago, it, unlike that old expensive camera, also is a five-megapixel still camera.
