Hello friends,

I was just wondering, what do you people do for a living? I just started working as a junior .NET developer(oh the irony).

What's your current position, do you like it and would you rather be doing something else? If you don't wanna answer any questions, that's fine too :)

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

I am a retired software/systems engineer. Now I teach ESL, volunteer with unaccompanied immigrant children, write a little (fiction), and build a little furniture. Sometimes I think about going back to work, but then I have a drink.

In this gig economy, I signed up with these guys that have teams ready to go, for IMAC jobs.(install-move-assemble-configure) When schools or offices receive their shipment of PCs and hardware, or need to relocate HW to another floor or office building, we're the ones that reassemble them in the new site and ensure that they're ready to run so the school or company only goes through minimal downtime. Mostly weekend or after-hours work; last weekend, only three guys were needed to inventory equipment like telephones, headsets, flat screens, keyboards, etc. with one person entering them on a spreadsheet while another would dump all loose cabling (VGA, power, phone lines, AC adapters for laptops) in a huge cardboard box. If they were ever discarded most of them would end up on ebay or craigslist. Those monitors were boring office good-enough-for-government kind and not the shiny-shiny 4k displays that are on Best Buy or Newegg, but I have always had a hankering for a dual head setup.

I used to work in the computer rental/laptop area of a popular copy center which was recently bought out by a shipping company; I didn't mind working the third shift but it became less of production print shop and more of a shipping firm.

 

I'd rather be doing this again, but not with Windows or Mac operating systems. Bring your laptops or netbooks over and connect to the in-house printers through wifi.

 

You can print your 'lost dog' flyers, or menus, or company newsletters on laser printers.

 

I can imagine even holding installfests every once in a while, like when slamd64 has a new release out.

I farm. :) Before I started farming, I was a solutions consultant at Fujitsu Asia, and briefly an on-demand engineer at IT startups too. Am doing a M.Divinity in Buddhist Ministry this year.

I am a senior software/applications/web developer/architect/consultant/Project Manager/etc..... primary focus on Microsoft platform with forays into linux (webservers).  Assembler, c/c++, basic, java, lisp, pascal, c#, t-sql...etc. a lot of stuff after about 35+ years of this kind of field...  not to forget controls engineering (limited), IC fabrication ...  heheh you can do a lot over the course of a life time.

 

Linux distro favors:

Slackware (since 1994)

Bodhi  (since 12/12/12)

Arch   (recently)

Debian  (recently)

 

I am also working on weaponizing grandkids.... not working too well... not much you can do with a 14 month old and the 10 year olds just roll their eyes...

 

Forgot to add that I am studying for my technicians license for ham radios!

:P

I work as a mechanical engineer and am a mechanic with all my heart.
Because of the work I travel a lot in the world. So far I have been to Romania, Hungary, France, India, Spain, South Korea and in the USA / Mexico in September.
I love my job.
In my spare time, I repair everything that my family and friends bring me.
From mobile phone display to lawnmowers, bikes and cars. In addition, I try to maintain my house and at times create a beautiful garden.
By the way I build PCs as desired along and try the elderly, especially my father (77) to teach how to use the PC.
 
Aaahhh and I am passionate mountain biker.
