I've got a good solid contact with a test contract/placement firm that I've used for over a decade of contract and direct-hire testers. They are aware of my plans to cut the lines in a few years and that I'll be looking for work when the weather turns mean and nasty. They're in mountain time so I'm hoping an east coastish time zone makes me a little more attractive for contract jobs. Nothing like a tester hitting builds four hours before the programmers roll out of bed.
