I am not employed in th IT field nor do I have any formal training, have just been playing with computers for a couple years, started building them for a few friends, then got into overclocking and mods.
Learned a couple exploits a few months ago, and through that learning became more aware of how the different processes work together, this really interested me especially being able to keep hackers out. LOL

want to learn more and eventually programing.

Well, for a job, I develop applications for embedded systems for automation (PLC programming, for those who know what it is). For fun, programming. Socket programming, general asm (sh4, x86) crap, and developing games dor the sega dreamcast. I also do lots of high voltage experiments!

I see alot of you younger folks are trying to break into the IT world. In my case 24 years ago I was being asked to sign a letter of intent before I graduated college. Nowadays life has dramatically changed. College, certs and experience whats best? I don't what to tell ya I got axed last year after 17 years of loyal service. Got college, experience and certs and I had to scrounge for a job in helpdesk. My best advice to anyone is get that degree. If you can't afford it then maybe military[I'm a vet of the USAF] lots of ways to get free money for school go for it. The offshore jobs are on the way back to the USA so don't fret. After 911 many americans have taken exception to dealing with non speaking english tech support. The news agencies are reporting one thing, but I am in the industry and the hunt is on for good phone and tech reps. Do good in school and make yourself available. Remember a degree is something that nobody can ever take away from you. Education is POWER! the more POWER you got the more money you make. Simple formula $Money=Power squared. Enjoy your youth you only have it once, because guys like me with arthritis would love to have our youth back.

Be good.
