    Hi Folks.

    I'm a 42 year old guy in need of a career change do to an injury. I have a hard time traveling long distances and I live in the middle of nowhere. I'm thinking about becoming a web programmer, web master, or some other programmer like c+ or vb.net that can be done remotely, (telecommute) or at least some or most of the time I could do work from my home.

    I have always been interested in computer related technology, I built my last computer for example. I know Basic like the back of my hand, some C, Assembly and Visual Basic. I am about to sign up for 2 year course in "Web Analyst/Programmer" and I'm wondering if I am headed the right direction.

    My question for all of you is:

    Can you work from home in this field?
    Also, if you can "telecommute", is this a common practice?
    Maybe comment on where you all work from and or if you are a freelancer?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Frankly Speaking, in today's world if you want to work on computers, you can work from anywhere.
    you can work on your office network sitting right at your home

    Freelance programming would allow a programmer to work from home. Maybe not a fulltime permanent job, but contract work - I'm sure if you look you'll find something.
