Need any wxWidgets or wxPython Help?

My current long-term consulting project will be coming to an end soon, so I am currently looking for some short-term paying projects to fill in while I'm looking for my next long-term gig.  Anything ranging from a few days to several weeks worth of work would be fine. So if you would like some help with your wx-related projects, would like to have specific bugs fixed or new features added to wxWidgets or wxPython, or would like to sponsor some of my work on Phoenix, then please send me an email and we can discuss the details.

Of course if you have or know of a long-term position available that would fit my skill set then please let me know about that as well.

Thanks!

OS X Lion Was My Idea
