O'siyo Keltic,
If you ever get back into sailing you will hear me say, 'freekenny reporting for duty as a crew member' kenshin2.gif I think it would be such a joyous experience to sail the open waters beer.gif Hopefully I won't be one of the crew members that are leaning over the side dry.gif lol.gif

They pay me to write programs. Most days it's more fun than real work (at least for me) so I absolutely love it here. Granted, what we do here isn't all the exciting, we're basically a consulting group for some national and international companies' marketing departments (basically marketing departments are the low people on the companies' totem pole for getting IT work done so they hire us for our expertise). What it really boils down to is that we keep some very large address books and attributes about people. We use that information to help our clients make better decisions about their marketing campaigns but I prefer our DBAs versionof what we do "We send you junk mail. In fact, we're the SOBs that picked your name to target." And now that I've been inflamatory, unless you are a farmer, a veterinarian (small or large animal), deal with selling tires or golf courses/grounds keeping, we probably don't bother you.

I try to spend most of my days immersed in SQL Server, Python and .NET stuff. Mmmm python. I love that language. Today I'm working on an process to sweep an IMAP box and process bounce backs, opt-outs (we take those very serious) and some other trivial things.

Basicly Studying now, almost finished computer ingeneering at UGR. Anyway, I don't like to work with those damm machines, so I'm trying to get a languages degree (nothing like people!).

My parents pay my bill now (I guess that's not an occupation !) but as I don't get on well with them, they just pay what they have to, and I really want to quit home (not that easy tough).

I worked a bit with databases, and in a bar. Now I'm delivering pizzas with a scooter.

If I'm lucky, I'll manage to get a proper job as receptionist in a youth hostel, but If I do (I don't think I will at all) it will be hard to work 6 hours a day and study at the same time... Anyway, that will be a great job!

I work as a helpdesk analyst for the United States Postal Service...that's how I got to know that funny guy Aaediwen that frequents these hallowed chambers! He actually got me interested in this site from the get-go...I haven't had internet for a while and I really missed the music. So I get to talk with Postal workers, help fix computers, and pretty much live life to its fullest!
(oh yeah, "gettin away", my wife's family is from Otisville, MI. Her father originally hails from Clio as well! It's a small world after all!

Wow, you all have interesting jobs...I work as a technical support analyst for one of the top 3 memory manufacturers. I handle phone calls all day telling wonderful people how to install their new memory modules or troubleshooting problems after they install them. I have been doing this for the past 4 years. I am also going to college to get my computer science degree, currently working on my third year. Before that I owned a cellular phone business for a year.

I track people down on the 'Net. I work for Duke University, and spend my days tracking down the addresses for lost alumni, parents, house staff and friends, ostensibly so that Duke can stay in touch with them. I am responsible for keeping Duke's lost alumni rate the lowest in the country. I am also in school, and will finally get my AA degree in December (after 5 years of part-time school)!! Woo-hoo!!!! There are so many things I want to do, but I love doing research of any kind. So, I don't really know what I want to do next. If I could do what I dreamed, I would be an astronomer. I don't think that will happen. So, I guess I am sort of rudderless, right now - waiting to figure out what I am going to do next. Scary and exciting. As long as it can support my daughter and I.

I am a numismatist. Want to talk about out there in left field. It as a family business started back in 1980 by my wifes step-father. Now I am his lead salesman (no big accomplishment considering there are only three), his webmaster, his in house IT manager, assistant marketing manager, CFO (well, at least I buy everything in that office), and other prestigous and noteworthy titles I could give myself.....such is life in the small business world.

At the moment I am a poor college student struggling to find a part time job to bring in a little cash flow. I am studying to be middle school teacher and would like to someday be a missionary teacher in Romania.

Well, at the moment, nothing. You may (or may not) have noticed my absence here of late. That's because I was laid off from my job in sales/marketing for a VoIP company last Tuesday (8/31). So I've spent the last week cleaning house, paying the bills with my severance pay, making some new and renewing some old contacts, and testing the job market. I started my own company a few weeks ago making pinback buttons for use as fundraisers. My business partner and I are marketing them to civic org. (DAV, AmVets, etc.) and church groups. The DAV will be selling them at the state fair here in TN this year. It's been tough getting it off the ground while working a full time job, so maybe it's for the best. I haven't been depressed this time, like I was the last time I was laid off from a job. The mood around the house has been upbeat and positive.

Anyway, I can always do some freelance graphic design and web design work. Or maybe go back to playing music. Or maybe stand on the corner with a sign.

Oh, well. Back to cleaning the house.
