Willie, check out LWN.  You are an awesome coder and we all deeply and 
sincerely appreciate the work you have done at Sun on Orca.  I am sad to 
hear you are one of the ones who lost their job as a result of the merger. 
The reason I say check out LWN http://lwn.net is because they have an 
article today talking about Mozilla donating $10,000 to Gnome for 
accessibility.  Maybe you could even get on at Mozilla?  Just a thought, 
but they seem to care about and have a stake in Orca and accessibility on 
the Linux desktop.

Kind regards and you are in my prayers!
