Generally everyone should have a side job of some scope-- it is how you become a "1%er", but more importantly it is how you diversify mentally and financially.

I guess I am in that position. I will help my brother-in-law out with his business as apparently finding someone who can solider 2 pipes together and have them not leak who is also dependable is almost impossible. So once a month I work a weekend for him so he as the owner and only real worker (like I said I work for him 1 weekend a month) can have a weekend off. I'm on call 24x7 and he pays me $5 bucks and hour to have the phone on and then I get $30/hr min 1hr to go fix something.

Weak. I have gone on some binges where I have pulled in over 100GB in a few hours, granted that was doing GIS with multiple large data sets some of which were high res aerial photos. Then there was 2 weeks ago when I wanted to play around with fire walling and securing various OSes so I downloaded a number of OS install ISOs in a few hours. Granted that was only like 10 different ones but it was still in the 10s of gigs and then there were the updates (VMs are fun).

What the hell is it doing making RPC calls or is that just because of how things in windows are bundled?

Yes that is a serious question as the only thing I still have the joy of dealing with that uses RPC is some boxes that still use NFS and those are ancient machines that I want to go set on fire out in the swamp behind my work.

Sounds similar to the farmer I get my beef from although he has only been on his farm for 37 years. His tractor is a John Deere Model D from the 60s. The thing still runs great and is well maintained. He is debt free and has a lot of toys, he has taken to collecting and restoring Corvettes. He only has a 40 acre farm so having a huge combine isn't needed as he just sileages the alfalfa he grows for his cattle.
