Have you got a telecommuting job?
I have a telecommuting job, but I didn't actually go looking for it, it found me. I should state up front that it is with an academic institution, so my experience may not apply to industry (in fact, it almost certainly doesn't).
I was looking to move to North Carolina, so I emailed someone I knew at Duke, to see if he knew of any industry jobs in the RTP area. Unbeknownst to me, he was doing a summer internship with someone well known in the Bioinformatics/Perl world, so my friend handed him my resume. He offered me a job before he even posted an opening (talk about luck...). The problem was this was at an institution in an area of very high cost of living (Long Island, NY). I couldn't survive on an academic salary, so my new boss suggested that I could telecommute. That was 6 months ago, and things are going very well.
It seems that academics may be more willing to let people telecommute, because in my relatively small circle, I know of two other people who do it. I think that is because of a recognized trade off--they can't pay much, so they offer flexibility. Unfortunately, I can offer any direct help--I don't know of anybody hiring right now, nevertheless, you may want to look in academia.
