Well life is finally starting to look better. I am still out a car but got the exact same model at a lower price with better financing. All I have to do is wrap up the paperwork. My S.O. received a 90% scholarship to Uni and may score a job there. Her program is geology (Masters).
Sort of in sync with my personal good fortune, I have managed to get a few things knocked out in NetBSDland. I closed several PRs that involved adding some simple extensions to utilities and commited a patch from a kind user to the kernel for some linux emul stuff. Right now I am in troll mode looking for something I can do, maybe I should enjoy the peace for a week or two?
