Similar here. Though nowhere near retired, (or semi-retired for that
matter), I have mostly gotten out of all tech as an occupation and
moved back into kitchens and cooking, where my true passion is, to
earn my keep. I got tired of the work following me home, and the
migraines, (not necessarily in that order). My tech clients, all 3~4
of them, know that the servers, websites, and databases are sideline
gigs and why. While my wallet misses the few $1000.00+ days we once
had servicing oil tankers while they were in port, (the stories I
could tell*), my bed and my cats are perfectly content for me not to
be sleeping 20+ hours just to get over one day. In 5 years or so, I
will have my own restaurant AND the POS will be of either my
programming or design, I just have to find the CPA willing to jump
into OSS with me.
* Yes, the captain said all outlets on that wall were 120V, the chief
engineer was there as witness. I still don't know what profanities
spewed from my mouth as the power supply blew up in flames. That one
outlet was fscking 240V. Fortunately, the power supply valiantly gave
it's life to save the brand new machine just plugged in.
