Hi! What do you guys do for a living??! - Page 437

post #4361 of 5881

I'm a web developer for a contractor in the DC area.

 

I make good money, but Virginia is a retarded state to live in when it comes to cost of living. I remember going to visit my sister in Indiana a few years ago and she was paying like $600 a month to rent a 3 bedroom house and crapped herself when I told her I got a great deal on my 2 bedroom apartment at $1400 a month.

Nope, I primarily use JavaScript and Java.

 

The contract I'm on uses Ozone Widget Framework to make applications for the client to visualize and manipulate data from various sources.

 

On a side note, I know rent in more populated areas is always going to be more expensive, and I love living in Virginia, but it makes me miss my small town roots when I look at what family members pay to get by on.

Yeah, I've got three of them fairly close to my place as well. oddly enough, to me, their coffee is "okay" to me, but I honestly can't stand it without cream and sugar, and even then I've only had it because I was curious as to how their coffee tasted >.>;;; As for why they aren't in that list, I think it's partially because of the fact Tim HOrton's is categorized more as fast food by a lot of companies, since they do soup, sandiwches, doughnuts (and those are horrid after they shrunk them and went healthier, but I lived in Red Deer for five years and the donut mill was freaking amazing!), wraps, etc... Whereas places like Green Mountain (and I might as well add in the Van Houtte cafés in Quebec and Ontario), Starbucks, and to a lesser effect Second Cup focus primarily on coffee, and usually only have a few extra kinda snacks and whatnot to compliment the coffee experience.

^ This.

Tim's is horrible black. I drink black coffee sometimes, but Tim's I need cream and sugar. It takes cream and sugar tremendously well though.

First year in college, took an almost two year break and that killed most info on math for me tongue.gif.

I've been looking for a job for a year now since I quit my job as a cook. But i take odd jobs whenever i get the opportunity. Florida sure sucks when it comes to jobs... sad-smiley-002.gif

doing some coatings (NEG) on synchrotron particle accelerator vacuum chambers .
We use coils to make a magnetic field that force the electron to spins around the cathodes that is in the middle of the chamber under vacuum. It increase the ionization probability thus enabling us to make plasma . and then the plasma ion smash in the cathode and sputter the cathodes material on the chamber wall. we have a new coil that is 6m high with 6 separate watercooling circuits , it take around 100-120 amps. all that to get something like one angstrom/sec of coating and we put something like one micron in total ,.....

in short i m a plasma elf ,... or lab assistant in physics

this is some oxygen plasma in another system
