Do you have any life other than driving the Tapestry framework?

I ask this question because I am planning to involved in other opensource projects. But once you get going, I feel there is not enough time to do other stuff in life(family time etc). What are your comments about that?

My current career is entirely Tapestry and HiveMind, but it's not something you can do without support. In order to make it, you really need a lot of skills: not just coding, but writing, teaching, problem solving, people skills and the love of a good woman. I've got a good sample of those (especially the woman), but it's still very difficult to get started as an independent consultant.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
