It's a very depressing process, being rejected on a regular basis. Obviously my search for work for nearly the whole of this year shows that it does generally work out eventually, but it had put a big dent in my emotional well-being before it did.

Hope you're doing okay. What personal projects are you hacking on these days, or are you giving those a rest for now? I often think that I made a big mistake not doing any significant work on YAWNS while I was out of work, but I just couldn't find the enthusiasm for it at the time. On the other hand, it sounded like you were doing too much personal hacking a while back...

Personal projects, apart from the odd hack to LJ toys, are DED. I just cannot pull together any enthusiasm for projects that have no users.

What's your application rate been like? If it's under 20 a week it's too low.
