Currently I'm one of 2 Network/System admins at a small Cable Tv Advertising Business. We don't make the commercials, we run the infrastructure to insert the commercials in different cable tv systems around north and west Texas. We have over 40 different towns/cities that we have vpn's to that connect to our equipment. VPN's were a good solution since we have to extremely restrict access to the equipment. If someone were to get in there and put some porn on there, we'd probably get reamed by the FCC. But now the stuff we use has a proprietary file system and proprietary mpeg2 files that you can't just open on a normal computer.
I found this job on craigslist and it has been awesome. The pay is lower, but I'm extremely excited to go to work every day since i get to mess with computers all day

Before school, I had several jobs...everything from parts counter at an auto parts store to security guard, several different construction jobs, even had my own PC shop from '99-'01. I mostly rely on tax returns and money earned from occasional PC work to buy my toys. It helps to have a techie wife
Edit: for the record, I'm 31.
Thats cool. Must be nice to have someone to share your techie desire with
I'm on a constant vigil for someone like that. I've driven through Sweetwater a number of times on my way to Lubbock. Definitely has changed over the years... from like 10 windmills to thousands heheh. Definitely some unique terrain out there.Edited by Syjeklye - 5/4/10 at 8:51am
