1505 - Hanging out a shingle

I've been thinking about this for a while, and this story in the Boston Globe (linked from Slashdot) has me thinking harder. I'm not sure I like the name "digitician" for the trade, but it does seem like there'd be a market for a computer consulting business designed for the home user, especially in Fairmont where there's no major computer outlet for folks to gravitate to.

My biggest concern is that the job would involve cleaning up Windows boxes for days on end, and I'm neither sure I could face that nor all that certain that I'm completely qualified for it. (A memory of spending two weeks trying to get a parallel printer on XP running still haunts my thought processes.) Still, I do need to find something to generate a steady income, and there's not a lot that I'm qualified for that is marketable in Fairmont...
