    Hi, I'm puretekneeq or PT.

    I've been building computers and setting up networks since I was 13, made a few grand online by 17 (and a few grand working for an IT consultant - basically being the monkey who formats/installs client-side computers) but I always considered it simply 'cool' and not a career or REAL job (my friends/family didn't believe you can make money online or that its a real job) so I pretty much ate the blue pill... high school > uni > real job; but I was always bored shitless and nothing came as easily to me as tech, long story short I'm recently unemployed and trying to live the society-approved-uni-real-job-marriage-house cookie cutter lifestyle does not look very appealing. So after a few years of tech neglect (cool phrase :) I'm getting back into it! My longterm goal is to make a living from online business.

    - cut to now -

    For the past 2 weeks I've been researching SEO/BH and trying things out with wordpress/blogger/social media while relearning my lost tech skills (php/mysql/java) I also uninstalled Windows and switched exclusively to Linux so I can practice server administration (and stop myself playing online games) this should help keep my mind sharp. So far so good, I've made about $60 in 2 weeks just playing around. I plan to re-invest that money in a few domains with some hosting in an attempt to get a consistent cash flow - after that I'm keen to start making some big cash, look forward to reading your advice/comments/suggestions :)
