Mind you..trouble with having my own contracting business would be that I wouldnt get all the lovely holidays and finish nice and early each day :) , though I suppose as it would be my business I could always do that anyway lol
But then again, I dont think I would like my own business, too much hassle, too much stress, too much mindwork. Seen far too many folks try their own businesses and had it destroy their lives. I'm happy to work for someone else, doing the stuff I do, and leaving my work at work when I head home :D
But you are certainly right, its very interesting how large the differences are in what some IT technicians do compared to other IT technicians. Its amazing how varied all of our workdays are compared to each other, especially when you consider that many of us essentially have the same job title. Perhaps there should be some variation of job title...maybe have Network Co-ordinator, Network Administrator, Network Technician. Something like that.
EDIT : Thinking on it further..a better description for what I do might be Network Engineer. So Network Co-ordinator, Network Administrator, Network Technician and Network Engineer :)
