What do you do for a living?
Not sure if this has been a topic before but thought it would be interesting to see what everyone does for a living. I'll start by saying I'm an Information Technology guy. Been an IT consultant for some of the biggest banks in the US but currently do professional web development for a local company. I'm a computer science programmer who loves to ride.

RE: What do you do for a living?
I'm in IT (information technology) too. I manage programmers and write program code for about 250 hospitals across this great ole US of A. Believe me when I say it's a challenge to keep up with the governmental regulations that come from those.... well I won't get into that.

RE: What do you do for a living?
Not much, and that gets too much sometimes, just kidding.

I'm retired and spend way too much time at the computer when I wasn't racing, fighting bush fires or doing volunteer work around the place mainly in Old People Homes driving them around to the shops etc.

Ex-military, motor mechanic and designer of heavy vehicle suspensions, race car suspension design and fabrication when I was in the world.

RE: What do you do for a living?
I'm a bum.

Since I finished going back to school, the economy dropped, and my son was born, I have been raising him for the last three years. My formal field is IT, but that was faltering somewhat in the last years. I started back in the late 80's when everything was hardware based and that's where my work was always focused. I got into networking in the mid 90's and stuck with that, but never wanted to learn programming. You can't really have a job in IT today without programming knowledge, not to mention most of that work is now being so tracked out overseas. the IT industry has become too brutal for me. They want people on call 24 hrs a day, to know multiple programming languages, and have 50 different certifications for mediocre money. Not me. Not anymore. I'm tired of making everyone else rich.

I'll likely start some type of business shortly. I can do almost anything. I'm one of those people who know very little about a LOT of different things. I repaired riding mowers out of my garage last summer. Lol
