Hi! What do you guys do for a living??!

post #1 of 5914
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I've find myself visiting these forums quite frequently, usually just to salivate at unbelievable screens and read about people's insane rigs. The thing is, I am not a hardcore overclocker yet, or even a gamer.

You see, I'm a student, so it's a distant dream to even be able to come close to affording the hardware some of you guys have!!

So I had to sign up if anything just to ask the sole question:

What do you guys all do for a living??!

Does it allow you to comfortably support your hobby, whilst being a satisfying job in it's own right??

Thanks

Left school at 16, went to college, left because it was awful and the teachers were useless. Now I work 9 - 5, 5 days a week as a Trainee Buying Clerk/Online store manager for a large car components firm.

I'm happy with the money I earn, love the job, and it allows me to fund my hobby, wouldn't mind if it was a bit more ICT orientated, but managing the online eBay/Store is quite interesting.

Also, this needs a sticky.
