Fair enough. No intention of raining on anyones parade. I'm simply trying to give him another perspective, aside from the party line.

I'm degreed and certified and I have MUCH more than 5 years in the field, so bear with me. Granted, my area is rural, with one big town an hour away.

You're priorities change with age, and it's nigh impossible to predict what the landscape will be even 5 years from now. Let alone 20. Are we still going to need people to set up, configure, and optimize servers? Are we going to need coders? Are we going to need desktop support?

I'll be we will need vets though.

Just think about it.
