This is also my plan, though I test. Recently I've started branching out into testing iOS software as that is a little smaller and lends itself to limited time spans that are best for contract-type work. That's also seems more enjoyable than the typical death marches for servers and web applications I seem to find myself on.

How do you find jobs for code work? Are you hitting up sites with contract jobs at a fixed price or time/materials? Are you using previous employers and making yourself available to them when you're in a place with suitable connectivity?
