Why don't you go work for Lincoln Stein?

They have had need of a scientific programmer for a long time.

Of course, you can look forward to a 20-70% drop in pay from the typical corporate pay scale.

But it is a lot more fun to work with AceDB, an object-oriented database thru and thru instead of all of this object-relational imitation stuff we have to put up with when using RDBMSes.
