I figured this would be a better place to put this because I don't want it getting wrecked from being in the main forum, plus I'm really only interested the IT/programming field. Currently I do html and flash work for my friends company at 10/hr. I know i'm terribly underpaid but it's a lot better than what i was getting at the mall. Plus they are really helping me learn more languages that'll get me more money and a better job down the road. I want to get an idea of how much money I can think about getting doing database stuff, sql and oracle is what i'll be learning of the next 3 - 4 months and they have me doing asp and .net. Thanks.
