This is a question Unemployed

I was Mordred writes, "I've been out of work for a while now... however, every cloud must have a silver lining. Tell us your stories of the upside to unemployment."

You can tell us about the unexpected downsides too if you want.

I got made redundant twice (!) due to the dotcom crash and spent 8 months of 2002 on the bloody dole.

Thankfully though, the weather was crap that year and to relieve the boredom I spent a bit of time writing shareware to flog via my website.

7 years later, I'm still selling the software and it has made such a vast pile of cash that I was able to go on holiday to Japan and fill my suitcase with Domo-kun goodies.

So yes, unemployment can have a silver (and gold!) lining.
