In the last three#

In the last three and a bit years of self-employment, I have learned that I am a better software developer than I am a salesperson, and that the opportunities for contract SBCL development are too few and far between to make a living out of anyway. There are those who would argue that I should have known both of those things three years ago, but, well, I feel better to have found out for certain. And the (fairly interesting, but not quite my vocation) unix/web/database/etc work I've been doing in the meantime has funded some quite neat unpaid SBCL work anyway.

But, as I said, my motivation for sales is matched only by my aptitude at same, and as I don't right now have people queueing up outsde the door to thrust work into my laid-back, casual, and ungrateful hands, I think it's time to draw a line under that life episode and start looking for something else to do. In other words, I've been kind of busy with agencies and similar stuff in the last few days. Will Hack For - well, sensible amounts of money, as the saying nearly goes.
