The Almighty Buck

+ - How to make some extra cash on the side?

The problem is that my work isn't what you would call profitable. I earn a decent wage, but being in a steady, serious relationship with babies sometime in the near future is going to cost me more money than i currently earn.

I was thinking about get a second job, but i know the internet is a great place for work, but there are many rogue sites out there, phishing and credit card scams, so it is hard to know where to look.

The problem i have is that i cannot code or do artwork. I am a decent musician, and if i get a project assigned, I work hard with it in my spare time.

So, I'm asking you guys. Is there a solid, trustworthy way to earn some extra bucks on the side on the internet?"

Can really free a portal for open-source software development be such a pebble in a shoe for someone? I can't think of none, *wink wink*, maybe someone who does not like stuff licensed under gpl, *nudge nudge*, oh noes... who can possibly believe in closedsource software as a future for the consumer out there? Oh, i dont know....

Old programmers never die, they just branch to a new address.
