Employed
Since roughly Thanksgiving, my previous employer (of two-ish years, working from home, making PSP and Wii games) had no money to pay me.

Since then, I've been contracting at a company founded by a friend and ex-coworker. At first, they wanted me to take a game that was just about finished and add in some localization code - basically do the logic so that the English text could be swapped out for French, Italian, German, and Spanish. (This configuration is so standard that EFIGS is a recognizable shorthand for games that support those languages.)

Long story short (too late), a certain hardware manufacturer continues to be jerks, and that project ground to a halt before I even showed up to work. For a while, I was working on prototypes and investigating technologies, but in time I rolled over onto the big project, which needs help, and has funding.

Today I got my offer letter to shift over from contracting work to full-time, what with the benefits and the 401K and the salary with the withholdings and all that. And the salary represents an adequate notch up from my previous fulltime takehome.

Which is to say, yay.
