The position I had at my former company was eliminated, and I was there for 9 years. So I haven't been looking for so long, and I'm trying to figure out if I have become obsolete.

My main strength is fixing computers, but when I look for jobs I see mostly programming.
Is there still a market out there for knowing operating systems and fixing sick PC’s, or should I try to make myself more valuable with programming or security?
 I thought with security, it would be where you setup a secure environment, and then you wouldn’t have much to do, so it might be a lot of contract work. I would like to work for one company, but I don’t know if that is really available any more.
Any thoughts?
