between contracts. I often keep writing freelance, using familiar tools and
screencasting (for sale) to keep everything moving.

Side note: I think a political discussion on these matters is valid! It's
our jobs that are becoming nomadic and these issues hit us directly. god
knows how many other topics on here are less relevant and still make it
through the filters.
