just finished a job on Upwork.com. finally. the two previous jobs I had to abandon because I had finished according to the spec but the client wasn't happy, and I didn't want to ding my reputation.

this puts me on target to be living within my means for this month, the first time this has happened since the beginning of my "new normal" economic situation. I don't believe I've ever seen such an anemic freelance programming market. there must be a glut of programmers worldwide to account for so many jobs posted at about a dollar an hour. and so many jobs amount to theft, just scraping content from existing websites, or spamming.
