    Id be lying if i said i want to move into computers for the love of IT. I do like IT very much and i think its going to evovle in a great fashion over the next ten or twenty years.

    Mainly the reason is money, i know it can be good money if you put the work and effort in, inlike being a mechanic, which is a thankless job and the money is poor.

    Which is why i decided to go back to uni in sept 2006 im doing a degree in computing and informations systems etc. We had a conference the other day about choices etc. When i first started life as a student i liked the idea of fixing computers, but as ive got into dreamweaver and Visual basic and the fixing computers bit is taking a back seat.

    What im asking i spose is what would people think i should take, im sure you all have opinions, and your input will be appreciated .

    He said it was for the money.

    My advice would be to get out of IT and pick another field. If you don't truly love it, and you're just doing it for the money, you'll be far surpassed by those who do, I promise you.
