Trust me: I've been in the work force for almost 30 years doing various jobs, but what has made me happiest is NOT the amount of money I bring home, but doing something that is rewarding. All that said, no, my profession does not allow me to comfortable support this here hobby. I have to save for a length of time before I can spend money on more computer parts, but my job is very rewarding, and for the most part it is fun! I teach elementary general music in a public school. Teaching is not a high paying job, but it allows me to pay the bills with a little left over that I save until I can buy a new "toy." I don't like to work; never have. So, doing something that doesn't seem like work, seems more like play that I get paid to do, is a great way to live, regardless of the money I bring home!

I know youre right. Im getting SICK of how my current Driving position is going and theres a computer shop hiring a warehouse person for a measly $13/hr that I may have to consider. Im still not sure if its truly worth the $1320 a month bust. Ill be home every day but Ill have to give up on my project car. I hate where I live. (which isnt where my user profile claims to dream to be)

Yeah, somehow I don't think that's true...

I did drop out of high school but found out later that If I ever wanted to do anything I was going to need a degree. I took my High school exit exam to recive my diploma then went on to graduate with my M.B.A. from Stanford.

Regarding facebook: At the time I was Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of North Star Systems Intl doing about 50 million in sales anually, when Zuckerberg poped up on our map. Thats when we knew we had a winner.

I also visit these forums from time to time, becuase I love tech.

Must be brief as I am very busy

I work as a programmer/analyst during the day...technical consultant in off hours.

I've done everything from upgrading my neighbor's computer to work on classified projects.

No, you can't know what. And yes, there are guys in suits who get out of dark vehicles with sunglasses on who will come get me if I tell. cool.gif

I work as the I.T. support for a not so small machining company. The pay is not that great but for my first real job out of school I can't complain.
