I helped my Great uncle with his computer for the first time. He wanted to upgrade the memory. I spent less than an hour, and that includes the drive to the parts store to get the memory. Plus I fixed a problem with his email and, showed him that he could use outlook express to access his hotmail account too. He was pretty happy. I think it could lead to more little odd jobs. It would really take a lot of them to make a living. They do provide a little hope that my little downward spiral when it comes to finances might end before I make an impact crater.
Today I called the place where I really want the job. They told me that they haven't called anyone to set up interviews yet. Call back in a week.
