Ah, Baldguy, you're sounding a bit like me. My milieu was office work, but I, too, spread out, learned as much as I could from different industries, and enjoyed it all. (Exception: I'd 86 the people. <g>)

Dunno why you couldn't turn your geekhood into rent-a-nerd consulting, though. So, your current specialty is software for the printing industry. BFD. Can you diagnose most PC problems? Swap components? Chat with people to find out what their tech problems are, help them find solutions? Hmmmm?

Especially if you're doing this with end users instead of business clients, you don't have to know every piece of software backward and forward. You just need to know how to figure out their problems. That might mean sitting and twiddling a few minutes, or it might mean getting on the net and asking experts. Either way, your experience with tech in general should be bankable.
