I write my own technical section for an international car magazine:

And on top of that, I am the UK Advertising exec for:

You must have gained some business when RCDevelopments went under, as they were in that area, I took my evo there about 6 months before they went bust, and they had just bought a brand new rolling road :-o

I work in retail-systems too. Look for bugs in the software.
Its fun enough and since my personality is over-analytical and I have to know everything about anything I work with it works out fine. Rediculous tho that I studied Web programing and C++/JAVA and now I ended up working with MSSQL/.NET, the very 2 languages I wanted to move around by choosing JAVA.
$50k in student loans for pretty much nothing I actually use in my daily work, ***.

BUT NOW I HAVE $400 LEFT ON THEM, PAYED OFF NEXT MONTH. \o/

Reading through this thread I see many folks in active service, or a veteran of one of the branches of the military. Just want to say thank you to all of you. You have sacrificed alot, much more than many of us on this board will sacrifice in our lifetime. You men and women are seriously the very best this country has and you make us proud. For those in active duty, I wish and pray for your safe return.

It's people like you, those who understand and appreciate the sacrifices made and the reasons why we serve, that reinforces our belief that we've done the right thing. Thank you, good sir.

Completely agreed. Hearing the support is one of the greatest parts of my life. I love America and I love what I do and I'm glad so many people are on board with it.

quite a bit of diversity here!

I've been a cable service technician(tv/internet/home phone) for the last 6 years or so.. I recently hit my breaking point however. I love the job but i just can't handle people greeting you with large ammounts of disrespect any longer. I'm going back to school this summer to be a pharmacist. Its a 6 year program so i have a long road of being broke ahead of me. Hopefully my current rig will hold me over for 4 years or so, until i'm able to start as a paid intern.
