Putting together computers, now that is something I "just say no". People expect the world, want it done cheap and expect to be able to use it without learning anything on their own. My brother does it all the time, but when he couldn't get one to work he asked me to figure it out. He's only been doing it for like 20 years. LMAO I have one of his discarded cases behind my TV running Vista. I tried to help him with his website but I told him he needed to come up with content to put on it
It might be that Network Engineers just dont like computers. Of course after 9/11, a lot of NE's became painters helpers for a while, I know I did. It's was a big jump from 150K/yr to 15/hr
