So, I’m working on upgrading my home PC largely for the purpose of running virtual machines for Labs on it.  An old socket 939 AMD dual core with 2GB of RAM just isn’t going to cut it.  The problem is I’m hampered by a serious funding crisis, what with rent and bills my spare funds each month are limited and saving is proving challenging.

Various websites suggest ways for IT pros to make a bit of extra cash but in order to raise significant funds you have to invest pretty much the same amount of time as you do in your full-time job, this of course seems to leave me with only two options, get a pay rise (unlikely) or find a new higher paid job (challenging in this economy).  The other option is to find a killer idea that I can turn into my own money making business and considering the best one I have at the moment is this place which hardly sees any traffic and most of that is by accident I need to do something drastic to give my self the healthy bank balance I’m looking for.

the difficulty in regards to the job search is the catch 22 situation it creates, I need the better PC to allow me to study for certifications which would help me get a better job but I can’t build the PC until I’ve got the money which comes from having a better job….

The long game may work in regards to this little site however, page views are slowly on the up and I’m writing more which can only help.  Writing better would probably be th next stage!
