    Backplane is no longer a going concern, so I'm not actually juggling
    anything.  I do have some obligations in the Tahoe area but they
    are mainly maintainance and don't take much of my time.

    Ahhhh... no.  I suppose I could give financial advise... don't live above
    your means, keep your credit cards cleared of debt, take modest vacations,
    have a checking account but don't bother with a savings account, and
    build up some permanent savings over time through a low cost brokerage
    account.  Don't smoke, and make sure you have health insurance.  Oh yah,
    Ignore everything you read in business publications, they usually get
    it wrong.  Any further advise can be given over private email but it 
    will always be fairly general in nature.  Kinda like Susie Orman, I
    suppose :-)  Basically the rule is "don't do stupid things".
