    How many of you guys do this as a hobby vs PT vs FT.

    We just found out that our office in Vancouver is closing up shop and migrating back to Stockholm, Sweden. I am one of the chosen few, but may not head over.

    At any rate, the IT market in Vancouver is bleak, and I'll probably end up using what I know from affiliate marketing (online gaming [poker]) and move forward with other markets.

    So I'm just checking to see what the TWL is compromised of.

    Oh, I want to. I'll be going over doing BI/DWH for them (moving my Vancouver DWH over) but if I can get some Affil Marketing up to enhance my income even more....

    We're working on the legal aspect right now. :hs: Work permits, residency permits... and it's even more complex going over as a Canadian independent contractor who will invoice a British company working for a Swedish company. It's gonna get messy.

    I'm a full time programmer, which pretty sucks the life out of anything I do for fun at home.

    FT + hobby on the side for extra cash. Giving up the hobby aspect as soon as my wedding is paid for.. as above, last thing I want to do when I get home is do more web work.

    Hobby right now, but I haven't had much time to indulge it recently, so I've just been lurking :hs: Hoping on having a personal summer project though to help learn web design
