I was thinking the other day that I know all kinds of stuff about players but one thing....what they do for a living.Think it might be interesting.We've tried to put faces with names.We tried to put a location to a name....Now what do you do for a living?
I don't want somebody to be embarrased and think their job is mediocre...especially after you read mine
I work at a resturaunt owned by Mennonites.Don't know what a Mennonite is?They are like Ammish but they are allowed to have cars,electricity,phones....ect.But they can't have radios,TV's,computers,cameras...ect.I am a cook and sometimes busboy.And I go to college during the day and work there most nights.Fortunantly I don't have to work with too many Mennonites.Most of the people I work with are cool college people

Well, I guess I'm technically an auto worker at the moment. I work for a company that works for Nissan in Smyrna, TN. Pretty cool to see the way a car's made. Takes me about 10 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the rear of the plant where I work, tho-that place is freakin' huge.

EDIT: Supe, if you're as big as u say, shouldn't u be the bouncer or somethin'?

I like pie, but I LOVE TM!

I'm a Project Lead at Prudential Securities. I'm basically an application designer and programmer. I develop both web (XSL,XML,Java,JScript,ASP, blah blah balh) and mainframe (Cobol, SQL, JCL) systems.

On the side I work for Hyperion Software (http://www.hyperion-entertainment.com/) where I port games (namely, I was on the Heritic II and Shogo projects( to Mac, Linux, and Amiga (please, don't start ).
We're currently working with the new Amiga Inc. on some of the OS parts of AmigaOS 4.0.

I get to see alot of the code from the inside. So its a great way to learn new techniques.

I use to be (late 80's early 90's) a 3d animation (Lightwave) and video dude (Video Toaster/Flyer).

Maybe I should mention that Hyperion was trying to get in touch with Longbow to see if we could liscence Treadmarks for Amiga,Mac and Linux. But Ben H. (the head hauncho) was unable to get intouch with them. Oh well.

I am the IS Manager for one of the four offices of the AICPA (look it up at aicpa.org if you want to know what that stands for.. too long for here). Before that I was an IS Manager at University of North Texas. Approx 5 years full time IS Management. Plenty of tech before that.
I run a network with about 70 local users, but that is WAN (T1,yay) connected to the 500+ users in the other offices, which are all on the East Coast. I am it for technology west of the Mississippi as far as the AICPA is concerned. I am LAN/WAN manager, server admin, telecom manager, help desk, password fixer, toner cartridge changer, mouse cleaner, butt wiper (no not that. Sorry). We run Novell Netware, NT, Solaris, and I have a secret box with Mandrake, Red Hat and Corel Linux on it.

Yep been around for some time and I probably am your elder synack. LOL. Just had a birthday and turned 56. You are right a 40 year old is still just a young'n with a ways to go to catch up.
Normal jobs - hmmm I thought computer work was a normal job - have to check on that! Maybe the memory is fadddd_iii_nn_g_g.
Oh yeah swisher - I worked on that stuff for years and still think that assembler is the most flexible language that I ever work with.
