Ditto this. I think I enjoy it a little more though. Makes me appreciate using my own computer after spending all day with Acers, Compaqs, Sonys, and Toshibas.

Edit: especially Sony laptops...from the crappy BIOS, to the cheapest case plastic available, to their weird way they like to put them together. They are utter pieces of junk and never buy one.

IT/Technical support for a title insurance agency. I like the job, but (not to sound cocky) I don't think I make as much as I'm worth. It pays the bills......

Edit: I'm 23!

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

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.

Software engineer / developer, primarily C++ ( I worked in C prior to '87 ). Development targets ranged, over the course of 30 years, from business applications, robotics manufacturing control, device drivers, plugins for AutoCAD, 3D plugins for 3DS Max, 3D realtime animation engine, physics engine - a wide range. Occasionally I'm known to take up a combination electronics design/software/product development project.

Network Technician for a large power cooperative. Currently we have a local ISP that does wireless internet access, so I provide onsite support for that including installing service and access point troubleshooting. Onsite may be put off to someone else soon and I can concentrate on getting my CCNA and soon do straight networking support for the company.
