    You certainly seem to have the brains for it.

      Many of the courses were programming related with html, xml, sql and OS administration for Windows and Linux both on the client and server side.

      I've also had some GIS experience on the side.

      Linux was a good bit of fun and I like the concept a lot. The only problem I have is not many apps can be used with Linux.

      I've also got some books on C# and C++ I need to get back into so I can keep my skills sharp.

      I write a series called 'My Life as an Aspie', documenting my experiences before and after my A.S. diagnosis as a way to help fellow Aspies and parents of Aspies and spread awareness. If I help just one person by doing this, then I've served a purpose.

      •  Given your background, then, ... (0+ / 0-)

        you might look into dB admin for medical offices and the like.  With the mandatory conversion to digital record keeping, many are over their heads.  

        Someday (soon, I hope) I'm going to need a dB whiz to help me with a major genealogy website I'm planning.  If you're interested, I'll keep you in mind.

        My nephew (13) has mild Asberger's, so I have some idea of what you're trying to deal with.  He's a math whiz who hates writing with a passion; that's a major hump in the road I'm trying to help him with.

        Good luck!

          was all about. We were converting the county's watershed inventory to a digital database. I was the top guy during the project and got glowing references for my work.
