Self-employment has been grand. The "ups" are tremendous, best of all being the control you have over your own life.
Most will tell you that the downside is that you don't get a regular paycheque. This is 100% true: as such, I find it pretty important to GoLikeHell when things are going well, and build up that cushion for the next time things are dull.
Which is all a long way of saying that updates will probably be relatively short and sporadic for the next couple of weeks. Luckily, there isn't much I can offer that isn't being done better by those in the Mandatory Reading section on the sidebar. Check'emout. Late.
