Consider offering freelance technical support

Here. Grant lays out his successful business model in a crappy IT economy, starting right away by laying it on the line for those of us having trouble getting over the old days: "I find again and again that the main barrier to re-entry in the work force for many people--not just technically-oriented folks--is a reluctance to admit that things will never be quite what they were. It's pride, mostly: they have difficulty reducing their expectations." Well-reasoned and well-written.
