No discouragement here... it is just a side venture. I am in the military and will be for the next 11 years when I "retire" at 38... so my degree really doesn't mean a whole lot sense most people that retire from the military end up getting jobs as a contractor/civilian equivalent of what they were doing.

My initial plan is to teach CS after I retire though either in high school or college or some sort. Which a degree in CS would (in my opinion) be much better than a IT degree... but who knows till it happens.
