I have been reading this website for a while. Always helpful. I use my computer for music, info, email, tv guide. I play the fps game quake 3 arena and always looking for tweaks and tips for better game play. Sometimes I think I like messing with my config more then playing. I built this computer and always fix my own dysfuctions. I've been in construction my whole life and have been thinking of a job change. I was thinking that I could see myself being a internet installer or repair dude for like comcast or qwest. I would get to do some tech work but still get to work with my hands. Something along those lines anyhow. My question to you all is, does anybody know if they make a decent living? How would I go about getting a job like that? With no experience on paper. Would I have to go back to school or something? Those questions really make me nervous. I'm 42 years old and have not been in a school room in a long time. Old dog new tricks thing =) Anyhow thanks for the website and all the help you give us. Darren

Welcome to BC
I don't know how to respond to you question
I'm sure there are some different trade schools out there that offer some backround in the field

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
