About you finding a job, have you considered working via the net? For accomplished profesionals, especialy web designers, there are many oportunitites of that kind...
Ah, you make me laugh. Have I considered working via the net? Heh. Yeah, about 15% of my present income comes from freelance work. Mostly copy editing, but occasional web site development. And then *this* whole thing ... if Twilight Heroes isn't work via the web I don't know what is.
I guess I laugh because I already take every web-based job I can find, which hasn't been much. Of course, without a day job I could spend more time looking, but freelance work--especially at a distance--in my experience tends to be very erratic. Even though it's online, people tend to like to be able to talk to you face-to-face, or have you in their office, that sort of thing.
Or maybe I'm wrong, and I've just under-estimated the market. I'll definitely be looking more when the move comes closer.
