I've certainly considered it, though I do have some doubts
about how long VA will be able to keep that going...  If we
go to the pain of moving, I'd like it to be only once.

I made a backup yesterday, just in case...

I'm planning on spending a bit of time enjoying having time
off and no boss telling me what to do.  As you've probably
noticed, I havn't been given much time for busybox

I'm in pretty good shape.  I can probably go 6 months or so
without needing to work (at the cost of eating up my savings
and annoying my wife ;).   I also have some consulting work
I've been doing on the side that (when finished) will let me
go several more months if I need to.
