What would I do?
Just as Robert Fleming said: I would make my job finding a job just like I did when I was in graduate school. I would also take more time to shoot guns (if there is time) and learn new things about technology. If I need money all I have to do is post an add and offer my services to the general public. Sounds easy, but we'll see. One thing I wouldn't do is volunteer. If I'm out of a job and don't have money coming in the first thing I think about is how to get income not spending time on things that don't generate it.
