    Alright, I know this probably isn't the place to ask this
    kind of question, but I've gotten alot of help from here
    so I figured "what the hell?" I know just about
    everything I ever wanted to know about Windows, I'm very
    good with all sorts of hardware and networks, and I can
    learn any piece of software in about an hour. Does
    anyone know how I can get an IT job without having to sit
    through years of collegic training or certification on
    something I already know?

    You might know what _you_ wanted to know, but not what "they" wanted to
    know. <g>

    While I could easily agree that you're good with software, learning "any"
    piece of software in an hour is unrealistic. You definitely wouldn't have
    the in-depth knowledge that takes months/years to learn.

    Read the newspaper and get lucky?

    You might be able to get an entry-level job that doesn't pay much and then
    work your way up. You might get some resume-building experience by working
    for a non-profit for free.
