at this point you are well trained to work in the repair section of best buy. if that is the kind of career path you would like by all means go for it.
but basically with your education and the economy/job market the way it is you will be in low paying menial jobs for a long time.
If however you have some concept of another field you would like to do that you can 'use' computers in go back for some more education
in that field. the tech school wouldnt be too bad of a choice but you might also find something useful at a state school.
holding out hope for the perfect job that pays well and you love will just fall into your lap is a lot like winning the lottery.

if you have the ability and desire a good applied sciences degree is always useful.

so if you are planning to a) stay at this place long enough to get a degree, and b) stay longer at this place they will make you sign up for for them
to pay your education bills (which is a good thing) you can see right there you will be at this place/job for quite a while more.
So at that point will you be wanting to go into a computer science position or something different?
but honestly after 10 years of real education nobody cares so much about education unless you are going to teach or do research for the govt.
get an education but think carefully about in what area.

sorry, meant 10 years of experience not education

I was so looking forward to the KNO device for this very reason.
but it didnt quite make it to usefulness :(

The ipad and goodreader is my current default but the screen is really just a little to small for
tech/scientific docs.

the asus eee pad transformer has promise but battery life sucks.

there are some flip screen laptops that are nice but again short battery life and quite spendy.

Ive been looking for years for such a beast but technology and demand arent there yet.
