I would have thought it was obvious - working at a restaurant produces
money, which can be exchanged for goods and services, and while you are
not on shifts, you can write code.

It doesn't have to be a restaurant. Any part time job will do, and
making it non-computer-related generally avoids having to mess about with
IP worries.

Sure, it doesn't let you dedicate your life to your dream project, but it's
much cleaner than sniffing about for handouts.
