    What do you guys do for a living?

    Hi all,

    This was always a popular topic in the old OT, and I was always a student at the time. Since then I finished school, worked summers in IT jobs, became a Mod here, did a university degree in Computer Science... then decided to be an Accountant. What do you people do?

    I'm disabled, before that did steel fab on ships building or repair, shaping hulls most of my life. Once the disability got in the way changed careers to computing around 2001 though I had been working on puters since 89 on the side.

    Well, I'm A+ and Network+ certified and I waste it all working for a local tire dealer with 18 locations. I mean, I keep the LAN and WAN up and roll out new hardware and software, but that doesn't take up enough time in a company this small and I also don't get paid like I think I should (who does). So I also keep track of inventory and ordering for our wholesale tire operation and our retreading plant and write all the spreadsheets and reports that everyone thinks they need but have no idea how to use. Pretty much if it involves a computer it's probably my job to deal with it. Oh, and surf the net "doing research for future upgrades and security concerns." Nudge, nudge, wink, wink.
    Things equal to other things are not necessarily the same.

    I.T. Director for a brand new Independent Catholic School. Pretty much a dream job, except for pay you would expect working in education.

    Web integrator... I dunno if it's the real term in english, but in a nutshell I'm the step between the graphist and programmer; creating the pages, preparing, assembling and formatting all text, medias and client-side scripting, and doing a bit of graphics conception and sometimes server-side programming.
