Submission + - Moonlighting: 6 month hunt for extra work

rraylion writes: Hello dotters, I graduated from a university, got my CS degree, am in my career job, and it's okay, but i need to broaden my skills, and need more money. So I figured hey, I create things for a living that as a skill a lot of people need. So I started looking for something to moonlight on as a side job. And I can't find anything... at all. I tried the code4money sites and those look unreputable, I look at telecommute sites and those look worse, which is scary. I would love to find a company, or a few companies that just need a few projects done and don't mind someone working part time in off hours. I wouldn't even expect a lot in terms of compensation, this is skill building, but I bring real experience to the table. Is this a unicorn I am seeking or is there a demand for this out there... if so where do I find it. I do MVC in .Net, C, java, SQL, javascript, a lil python — the usual you know. I can pick up anything and run with it. What am I missing, and where do I find it?

I realized that through my own action or inaction I could make our network more vulnerable. So after consulting with IT and making sure I was locked down as secure as everything they would normally deploy, I began thinking about the sites I visit on a regular basis and if they had mal ware issues associated with them.

I quickly found http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diagnostic?site=

and then adding the site you can see what google thinks about the site — well I wonder if Google knows how they fair by their own diagnostic systems.
