So now that K is no longer working for us, I've been posting less during the day, as I have to watch the kids. I've had a few interviews since my last opportunities fizzled – I've been told I'm very lucky that I'm getting interviews at all, but still, it feels kind of slow. I'm still waiting on feedback from one I had on Thursday.

I'm also trying to fit in some hacking to broaden my skill set. For example, I wrote a little demo program to demonstrate my C++ skills and style, and to build on that, I set up my own CVS repository, will enhance that program, then rewrite it in C# using the Mono beta as the platform.

I might also be setting up a tech weblog on Blogger/Blogspot. I decided that rolling my own with Movable Type or something similar would just be too distracting, and now Blogger supports comments, which is definitely one of the more useful features to have that's tougher to implement in a standalone setup.

Thank you. And,. oh, I definitely am enjoying this time off – there's a pleasant combination of things I can do and things I don't have to worry about doing that I like. It's cool to spend time with the kids and go grocery shopping in the middle of the day.

Still, I kind of miss work, and I have to watch out for the skilz rusting away…
