I am a Help Desk Rep for a company called Advanced Technology Services (ATS). I provide computer support for the employees of some major companies, including FujiFilm and Panasonic. I also do plenty of work on the side. My passion is computers, so it is truly a blessing to be able to do what I love for a living.

Work for Advance Auto Parts as a Commercial Parts Pro, selling parts to shops and dealerships. Not a glamorous job, but it pays the bills and allows me to help people out. Started tinkering with computers a few years back when my store bought started to slow down, now I could never go back to buying a pre-made computer. Walk through places like best buy and staples and just have to laugh at people buying the ones off the shelf.

I am a apprentice Electrician for my family's small electric company. It's a ok job pays my bills and has some for playing with my pc. The job has good parts like its always changing doing different jobs or projects and never the same boring thing. It also helps save money when working on my own place. (Just added a cool new outlet that has 2 usbs built into it in my kitchen.) I got into computers as a hobby and found it to be fun and have built computers for my friends and family.

Systems analyst. So a lot of problem solving. But on the plus side it never gets boring because it's always something different. Looking to get into the dba side of things where I work.

Well, mate. Wit until Abbott gets in, GST will go up, mark my words. Oh, and shift workers can kiss penalty rates goodbye too. The rich, however, will get their customary Liberal tax cut. But I digress....tongue.gif

I am a general manager for foreign markets for a Bicycle Manufacturing Company in Bulgaria. I do ok, but the solo reason I can afford buying new pc parts is that my company has the biggest discount in the main importer of pc parts in the country and I can write them on the company which means I don't have to pay the 20% VAT tax on them. If I was in the same position in USA I can't start to imagine what prices I would get smile.gif
