Level II Telecommunications Technician for a business partner of Avaya Commucnications (used to be Lucent). Right now I do pre and post sales tech support, and learning how to build IP Office and the new Communications Manager switches for customers. Programmers make big $$ if you're good. Didn't take any college for this, just started in the warehouse, and then 5 years later, got pulled up to the sales floor. My boss have given me many opportunities. He must see something in me that I don't, lol. Other than that, I work on cars on the side, as well as landscape sometimes. I'm a busy guy usually.

Gotta make 'dat mon-nay!!!

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

My dad works for Lucent Tech...that's why they are laying off so many people right now because all their contracts are up and half the companies don’t want to renew them because of the fine American court systems screwing up AT&T in the first place.

Because of them, Lucent has to rent out their equipment for a lower price effectively killing any business Lucent has.

Now my dad has to worry about getting laid off every day…way to go!

I work in the IT dept. for a medium sized company in Charlotte, NC. Specifically, I do network administration and desktop support. I'm the one and only "go to guy" for computer help in the office.

I like my job. Since it's not a huge company, we don't have all these obnoxious corporate policies that restrict everything we do. I have a lot of freedom in my job. I hope I get to stay there for a long time....

I also do computer consulting on the side. PC repair, upgrades, and network implementation.

I am an environmental technologist. I generally work on contaminated sites investigations. Very interesting work some days, very crappy others. It's always fun to find water that's flammable in the ground.
On the plus side I get to travel lots. I'm doing two site cleanups on top of 5000' tall mountains this week and next. Hell of a view from up there.

Stronger than never ever before

2.5'' -> 3'' -> 2.5'' Exhaust, MAC Intake, Iridium plugs, 8.5mm plug wires, 76mm MAF, 2.5'' cats, 5% aluminum OD pulley, UD pulleys, lightweight jackshaft pulley, ported supercharger and raised top, front and rear poly bushings
For now...

i am a registered nurse at a level 1 trauma center. it is quite fun and fast paced. 5... 12 hour shifts in a row is kind of tiring, but it is worth it for the following 5 days off. can't beat working 7 out of 14 days.

I am a US Marine also, however of much less rank. I am only a Sgt, but still moving up. I work for an Aircraft Group as well, as a T-58 Jet Engine Mechanic. When the Flight-line Bubba's can't fix them, they bring them to me, or we just get them for a scheduled rebuild.

Its good to see at least one other Marine with some taste in cars Master Guns.....
Out here most other Marines drive rice crap...

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself".
