What do you do for a living?

Just curious to know what folks on here do for a living. I know that some peoples profiles list their occupation but even that is vague. So, what do ya do to make the money to pay for the toy(s)? Be specific if you can... ie not just "im in the computer business" Just thought it would be interesting to know. I'll start: Im in medical sales. I sell operating room based products that surgeons (mostly urologists) use in the O.R. Spend time both selling to the urologist and working with them in the Operating Room.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I work for Exxon/Mobil as an Active Directory Infrastructure Specialist and Network Administrator. I take care of over 530+ Active Directory Servers worldwide. For those that don't know what an Active Directory server is, it's a centralized server that authenticates logins for all users on a network. That's not all the servers do, but it's one of the primary functions. I basically sit around all day logging into servers remotely all around the world fixing issues and designing ways to make things function better

Certifications: MCSE 2003; MCSE + Messaging; MCSA; CCNA (Cisco); A+; MCP; etc.....

Re: What do you do for a living?

I'm a computer programmer/systems analyst (UNIX is my speciality), in charge of the application that does patient billing for Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, and all of it's satellite hospitals in the Metroplex. I also do alot of project management type work, alot of break/fix troubleshooting on several different kinds of systems, and I'm oncall 1 week out of every month for about 15 enterprise wide computer systems. Basically, I sit in front of a computer screen all day in my nice, comfy cucible in a downtown high rise and surf the web, which is why ya'lls medical bills are so high...............it pays good too!

Re: What do you do for a living?

I sell industrial supplies. Mainly items for machining and production. If you want to cut, bend, form, weld, or grind steel, we sell the tools to do it.
CNC lathes & mills to screwdrivers & hammers. Pretty cool stuff. I wish I knew how to use all the things I sell. (I could make a lot more money)
My wife's a pharmaci$t. I married good.
