First tool: the "FU money" calculator

The FU money calculator

FU means Freedom Unfurled, of course. Go find out if you can strike out on your own, and if you do, how long you can operate before you have to find some kind of income. All of the magic happens with JavaScript in your web browser, so no data leaks back to me.

Play with the numbers and see how you'd fare.
