That is NOT the equivalent to building brand new computers and over clocking them.

I am a technician I mainly do computers and some times electronics and basic cabling. Though you could consider me an un paid intern though and I am broke. I get parts a little at a time and i can take me over a year to buy the parts. I usually acquire my parts a few or one at a time. Same for all my machines listed below including the laptop.

yeah I'm some way into my degree but I always have thoughts about moving into IT or even dreaming/contemplating quitting to try and get started in other stuff like DJ'ing, pro gaming or doing some crazy sport like base jumping and getting sponsored by red bull.

Like those last few will ever happen in my life, but I still have thoughts about quitting uni all the time, I can't stand those thoughts as the uni I'm in is a pretty hard one to get into but then I'm not really enjoying it either only the thought of cushy job at the end keeps me going (barely).

May not be the best way of looking at it, but at the end of the day I'd choose a moderately boring well paid profession over near-certain financial suicide any day biggrin.gif

Yeah, definitely, keep at it and go for an internship if you can. Even if the job may not be thrilling, that financial security is big. Knowing you ain't gonna be broke a few years down the road and you'll be able to pay off student loans and get a place and a car and a gal and your proposed rig beats the struggle any day. And maybe you'll even have a few bucks for a side gig. biggrin.gif

Hi All:

Thought i would chip in. I am from Singapore and i have 2 jobs. The first job is a Monday-Friday 9-6 job which brings in the main stream income - i work as a trade finance adviser for Shell Petroleum Singapore. Satisfy with the work environment (thou have to endure some heads-on conflict at times) and pay is good to feed myself and my hobby.

On weekend, i am sort of a full-time private 1-on-1 tutor teaching college students math and science. Again, pretty good pay around USD25 per hour. I have 7 students now and plan for a mid-career switch to full-time private tutor (full-time school teacher pay are pathetic in my country) if someday someone somehow managed to engineer a clean energy substitute for oil.
