    Bet you thought this was another generic newbie thread ;)

    There seem to be a higher than normal amount of useless threads today, so I thought I would make something for entertainment purposes/to give newbies ideas they hadn't considered before.

    What I'm looking for: Your personal favourite way(s) of generating pennies that doesn't include a 9-5 job. This can be offline or online. You don't need to go into too much detail.

    For example: I'm Conor and my way of making money is fixing computers for a fraction of the price a normal computer shop would charge. I did this a few years back, and word seemed to get around very fast that I "knew computers". I had worked at a PC repair shop before and knew pretty much all their methods, and the fact that they ripped people off for days. People would have me go to their house, I'd spend an hour or two doing my thing, and I was given the cash! I earned some nice pocket money back then. Sure it was rather tedious and boring, but it was a solid method.

    I don't earn many in IM. I'm a noob ATM and I am a long way from actually earning anything. :/

    Doesn't have to be IM only. Making money is easy, you just have to be creative.

    I do affiliate stuff on niche websites (SEO). But now I'm building my own offers (free trial rebills) and plan to make this my main business going forward into the foreseeable future.

    Do a few different things, but the main ones are:

    - Bot making (Ubot)
    - Script writing (PHP / Perl)
    - Hosting services
    - Hosting troubleshooting
    - Sysadmin

    There are a couple of other ways of making cash but those are my main money makers
