A crying shame

[ #5530 ]
It's a real crying shame, but I won't be able to go to TPC this year. Yesterday I had to cancel my registration because of lack of funds. It all seemed to be no problem, but in the past 6 months I've only received money for 2 months work and it does not seem like it will improve in the few weeks to come.

Yesterday I even sold my dear laptop to be able to pay the rent. In theory I should receive more than 30.000 euro this month, but I fear it won't happen. I can't take the risk of being thrown out of my house.

Because of the financial sh*t I'm in, I can't get myself to work on my private programming projects like pVoice or even the writing of my book.

I'm sure times will get better, but when those times will be is the big question.

I'm still healthy, that's what counts :)
