    Default Any info on the home job scenario in Texas!

    Hi Everyone, I am planning to earn some extra income but currently I am working in a private firm and my schedule is very sticky over there. I would not want to skip my current job so taking that in consideration I have decided to make some extra money by working from home. So, I would like to know that how can I start working from home in Texas?

    You could stuff envelopes.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Without knowing what your skills are, it's hard to say what you should do.

    There's always the oldest profession, but you may want to move to Nevada.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    I was actually looking into something along the same lines as sacowan. I would like to work remotely in a part-time capacity in the network security/pen testing world. I am a software developer by trade and developed a few of my own security related tools. I have developed my own port knocking/single packet auth ssh based vpn application….complete with a windows gui client kind of like putty…, as well as a java/struts based front end to a distributed network of Nessus servers. I am most proficient in java and c#, but can also get by in c, bash, javascript, etc.

    So, other than checking the job boards and moving to Nevada, is there anything you all would suggest? Is there even a place in the market where my skill set and part-time/remote requirements would fit in?

    As my grandfather always used to say. The world needs ditchdiggers too.

    You can always advertise in the local papers for home PC service with the dozens of other people doing the same thing. Of course, that can get to be rather annoying after a while. Home users aren't much fun to deal with, they expect the world out of you and don't want to pay much.

    Freelance security consultant could be kind of tough to get into especially if you have no reputation to show for it in that field.

    Would that be the "Freak Squad"?
