My name is Tim, and I'd like to retire early...
Like most, I've been lurking for a while. Figure I'd join in on at least some of the discussion. I work as a programmer, and a year and half ago or so negotiated down my work hours and my pay. I now work 80% of the days for 80% of the cash, and am loving it. If anybody else does something similar I'd be interested in hearing about that. My fiancee and I are thinking about buying a house, but since I work in Santa Barbara we'd either have to move somewhere else or win the lottery.
Non-financially, I like to take pictures, go hiking, go camping, mess with random computer stuff, and do enough exercise so I can feel in shape.
