    Are there any jobs out there that can be done part time while doing a full time job sat at a computer ?

    Getting quite frustrated with the amount of money I haven't got at the end of the month !

    Would you count yourself as pretty and open minded? :eek:. Good money in the oldest profession

    On a more serious note- whatever you do, watch your taxation with the arrival of a second job or you could get hugely stiffed.

    ebay is good...we sometimes buy designer clothes from charity shops and sell them on ebay...ie. buy a top for £2.00 sell it for £10.00...Jacket for £5.00 sell it for £35.00...nothing fancy but we like it in an anoraky kind of way and it pays for DVD's Games etc....

    I worked with somebody who did this during his normal full time job - he made a good living out of it until the boss found out and fired him.

    A couple of friends at work managed (seperatley) to look after the letting of some flats/houses that they owned - one managed to "retire" before he was 30 - but he had a head start with a big inhertance.

    I'd be careful doing anything that involves company equipment - if you work from home use another computer and you should be ok.

    oops thougth your post was for something to do at a computer full stop.... rather than at a computer at work.
    doubt your employee would approve....


    if you trust your discipline, then online casinos can be a good source of money.

    the premise is to take advantage of their introductory bonus offers, say deposit 100 dollars get 100 free.

    of course they arent giving you free money straight up.
    either they will add the bonus to your account but not allow you to withdraw it, or credit your account once you have fulfilled the conditions

    the conditions will usually be to stake a certain amount, say five time the value of yoru bonus amount.
    (you need check the rules carefully as they may disallow some games, or impose other terms)

    but basically choose a low risk game
    such as betting small amounts on red, or playing a solid
    black jack strategy (a site called wizard of odds will get you up to scratch) or any game you can expect say 98% return.

    so in the first example, deposit 100, hope to have say 80 left after you have fulfilled the bonus criteria, and be able to walk away this much up in less than 2 hours.

    the best bit is there are so many sites out there (obviously some with better reps than others, perhaps ones like dodgy jimmys backroom cell might be avoided, but stick to the major book makers, and i have never doubted their security or integrity.)

    also, many will alow you to repeat this each month, unless they get fed up of your strategy.

    this site, http://www.casinolistings.com/ is a good source of casinos.

    Please note, this site is nothign to do with me, however some of the links may be affiliate links, so if you dont want to give them a share of the casinos takings, i suggest you enter the urls direct. I only list the site as it is very comprehensive.


    Alternatively, you can try online poker.
    In www.dougspeed.com i am aiming to provide a low risk strategy to winning at "the latest big craze"
    (This site is somethign to do with me :thumbsup: )


    Ps I noticed a post sim to this was deleted a while back (however in that case it was clearly spam, and in the dvd bargains forum)
    Scanned the rules and couldnt see any reason not to put this info down

    Tons, I am open minded but I don't think my work colleagues would like the conversations I'd be having on the phone :) Plus I don't think the wife would be amused either.

    Kelvin, ebay is an option, cheers.

    Decadence, nice idea. I wouldn't want to steal that idea from you, so what else would I be able to do, do you think ? What happend to company PC when they get rid of them ? Is there a company that takes them away or do they just dump them ?

    Damage,

    Nice idea, but I don't think my company would like to see me gamble work time.

    Mind sound simplified but perhaps you should look at your outgoings.

    Are you spending piles of money each month foolishly?

    Perhaps you are one of those people who buys 10 DVDs a month and watch them once every 2 years?

    Have you a habit you could quit eg smoking? Would save a fortune there.

    As for the whole eBay suggestion. If you are into anything DVD, CD, technology based you probably have a pile of stuff that could fetch good money on eBay.

    Apologies - my previous post (naturally), assumed that common sense would be applied when using company equipment... ;)
