    True, but there is time involved finding the drivers for the old cards
    that work.

  3. But the time is made up by plagiarising usenet posts and not crediting the
    source, eh.

    Yes often you have to cap your charge. You dont want to scare to death
    your typical home user with some high hourly rate. Sure, often you eat
    the time but you get a repeat customer. With win98 the average call was
    only an hour. With XP this went up to 2 hours.

    Sure, sometimes you are out 6 hours at a single home for $200 but $200
    is better then $0 dollars/day :)

    Besides, the next time the customer calls for something like spyware
    removal or other simple thing you dont feel quilty collecting $125 for
    45 minutes work.

    The repeat customers get you through the slow times, and believe me,
    there are some real slow times.

  5. But you can make up any losses with a bit of surreptitious plagiarism.

    Find a parts distributor. Hopefully you'll find one less than an hour
    away from your home. They're not the easiest to find either as they may
    not be in the phone book. In New Jeresy USA they are all pretty much the
    same. Located in industrial parks near a major turnpike, generally have
    2 or 3 white guys, one Indian man, and one female Asian in the front
    office as sales persons, they require a tax id so your not charged sales
    tax, you can generally get the best prices and bargain with the
    non-white guys.

    Same here in the usa you need a tax id or they wont deal with you. Yes
    they like to deal in large quantities also for their corporate clients.
    However, paying with cash gets you
    the same treatment as a large client :)

    Another thing to keep in mind is that the salespersons deal in large
    quantities as you say, and may be selling a thousand modems/week with no
    problem. If you buy the same modem and cant get it to work it's your
    problem getting it to work.

    Are you sure it's not the suds giving you the buzz?

    Not necessarily. The person may have the know-how but doesn't have the
    pricing down yet. The biggest mistake new techs do starting out in their
    own business is NOT to charge enough for their time and NOT having a
    trunk/boot filled with cables and hardware. It does take some time to
    figure out what hardware you have to keep with you. In the beginning
    you'll be spening lots of time going back after you get the right part.
    After a while you learn what parts to keep in stock. From experience,
    I'd say you have to keep about a $1,000 worth of parts and tools in your
    auto. The key is to have whatever you need to fix a pc onsite without
    having to leave the site. Of course you dont have to stock mobos or
    cases tho having a new 17 monitor in your home/car/place of business
    ready to resell is recommended. The client will gladly pay you rather
    than go out and deal with buying one him/herself. Easy money.

    What command line .... !!!

    Easy for you, you obviously know it .... but to a 'virgin', it was

    Windows is, IMO, a lot easier to digest at first glance.

    Of course, as ever, YMMV
