Need ideas how to make a few bucks after my nine to five job.

Okay, so I have a job that after the trip, break, and work I end up walking up at 8:30am and coming home at 7:30pm M-F. Sometimes I come in two hours earlier and because of that leave earlier, and there are some weeks where I have to work Saturdays. So my job is somewhat stable but there are some variances that happen on my schedule. The only other thing I feel I should mention about my day to day life is that I live in New York City and don't have a car.

Anyway, I need some ideas as to how I can make a few bucks on the side after work with computers given my life style. I have a general foundation of knowledge in computers when it comes to hardware, networking, and programming. I have repaired computers, troubleshooted home networks, built basic programs, and designed HTML pages, but I'm not an expert at any of these activities.

I am willing to do a bit of studying, but whatever is the quickest to learn and most low-skill would be preferable. And I don't want to give up my current job.

Any ideas?

Well depending on how much you want to earn the one way comes to mind: google adsense. Make a website, blog, whatever about anything you want. You don't even have to sell anything, just make it interesting enough for people to go there on a daily basis or check back often enough. Place some google ads on the page and slowly watch some money come in. The only problem is you only make anywhere from $0.01 to $0.50 (I think) a click mostly it's less than $0.10 a click.

Google won't send out a check or electronically deposit it (I think that's what they do now) until you reach $100. It's a very slow way to earn money depending on your website, but it's worth a shot. I do it with my blog, I don't count on the money but it's nice to forget about it until you get a random $100 from google.
