Default thinking of trying to get an online job while in the military?

thinking to myself the other day... I thought how and if I could find an online job doing computer related stuff like picture editing or enhancing, basic IT work or just anything basic computer related for a little extra cash... Currently I am military employed and deployed, not knowing where to start or what to really look for so basically I want to know what people think and any advice on how to accomplish this task...

What programming languages do you know and what expiriences do you have with graphics. Do you have any examples of your work?

You guys get paid much better than I did. I made $134/month as an E1 in 1971!

If you're looking to do IT work on teh side while deployed, look into Crossloop. It's kind of like logmein or VCN but it's request based and you can charge people for it. I used to do it for a little bit of cash but haven't in a while. Take a look if you're interested: Affordable Computer Help & Support, Remote Access & Free Screen Sharing

Almost 3 years, and I'm deployed too. Most are during the summer.

Maybe you could try selling things that you can in Fiverr.com as on that site, you can sell whatever you want for $5 such as holding signs with the text buyer wants and such. That's easy $5 for doing something you can do better than the others or just simply holding signs.
