I think you need a bachelor degree to get a good job. No diploma, only get you as far as technician. I used to work in IT industry. I just think people don't pay as much as they used to be. It's a long hours job working in the IT industry with the same pay with normal hours. That's why I quit this job.

There's always a chance. If you can really demonstrate that you did some practical software development in those 12 years then the lack of education becomes less important. I would recommend learning some newer technologies like VB.NET since fewer and fewer companies are using VB6.
