I’m focused on contracting right now (and lining up work for March and April if you have anything) and considering a couple of f/t jobs that might open up this Summer.

It’s almost feature complete for testing on the Lasersaur project, but I’ll probably redesign/recode every screen at least once before it hits Alpha. That’s just how new software projects work, write what you think you should write, evaluate, then plan on writing most of it again now that you know what you want.
