I'm a reservist officer if that helps. Cool

Hurray for being a weekend warrior. What?


Wow... a reservist and an officer

Active duty enlisted so I hate you for 2 reasons Big smile


I did my normal military service for an officer as well but I stayed in the reserves as is common practice where I live.

And I'll buy you clothes when you wash the god damn dishes!

I know very good developers and techies who, for example, now own tourist attractions, become teachers, have become professional storytellers, game designers. But soon or later the new computer scientist look around their workplace and wonder where the old computer scientists have gone.

Me? Rather than the rat race of London's square mile holding the hand over every bank and law firm in the City I now live in Snowdonia and 'do horse racing' for a living.

A tip. Get out of computing as fast as you can. It'll rip your soul out before you hit forty.

Currently unemployed :(

By trade an auto electrician, used to do a lot of work on stupidly expensive cars, retrofit multimedia, vehicle trackers and the like. Now it's all done at the factory so I turn my hands to whatever comes along and pays the bills.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Electrical worker, apprentice, used to work as a security tech and central Vac installer. Do a lot of work on construction of new homes.

Not exciting, but sometimes interesting. Still thinking about becoming a Police Officer, but I'm not a particularly driven individual, so it's mostly thinking as usual. Things in my life just seem to happen without the planning, and planning tends to lead to nothing happening, so I just go with it. What?

Fellow Minnesotan here (recently transplanted). I'm one of those old-ish technical wizards. I did work for Radio Shack a long time ago. Radio Shack was the tech-wizard version of McDonald's back then.

For a second there I thought you were talking about Broadcast Television. It was for this very reason, being under-appreciated, I gave up on meteorology after 10 years in the broadcast business. It sucked the living passion right out of me. However, it also allowed me to explore other potential careers and lead me towards my love of IT/Information Security. But yeah, working for the wrong company can suck the life out of you if you let it. Oh, and I'm only half a decade away from 40 and still love computing but I don't deal with customers/non-techies anymore so that could be the reason.

Edit: One more thing, be very careful of the companies that are looking for pure code monkeys and not problem solvers, YOU WILL get burned out from a job like that.

I go well with Quafe...
