I put my resume up on guru.com, and sent in an application to be a sysadmin at UC Berkeley (even though my job at U Michigan was pretty awful). The nice thing about my situation right now is that it's pretty stable, I have a month-to-month lease, and it's conceivable that I could still continue in my present job and live up north. (I love the people I work with; they're the best group I've ever dealt with. We kick ass. But I also sorta feel that I've done most of what I've wanted to do here.)
It would change a lot of things, though. I hope.
