In 2001, I was laid off two times one in April and another in October. Though I am lucky found another job within two months, my pay was cut each time with my new job. During those times, my stock holding tanked.
Start spring of 2002, I looked at income properties. I bought one run down apartment building and one foreclosure commercial building. My weekend and holidays are filled with hard working days: fix the roof, floor, pluming or bargain with contractors. At this point, I see my side job is returning more profit than my day job did.
Originally, I try to make up my lost income from real estate. At this point, I am thinking of retire early or running my own high tech business.
There are many opportunities and success route. Hope my experience will give you different view.

"arms" Gave me a giggle though
I've seen several work mates move into real-estate and other income maximising schemes, but I'm not sure if this a reaction to changes in the job market or something they'd do anyway.
 
We've gotta get close enough to that helmet to pull the choke on it's engine and flood his mind! Or, we could just read this tiny ad:
