    I'm in IT. I specialize in VMware, SAN, Microsoft Server OS's, and Datacenter migrations/builds.

    I'm a nerd.

    I work for an event production company that handles sound, stage, lighting, and booking of events in South Florida. Though I used to enjoy my job, I actually kind of hate it due to the verbal abuse that goes on in the back end of this business. I've also been an entertainment journalist since 2005 and have owned 2 publications, one still going, the other stolen from me.

    I do what I'm told. When I'm told. Whether I like it or not. And then they pay me.

    I guess that makes me a ho.

    I currently work for a Sand and Gravel company in Eugene, Oregon but for the last 44 years I've worked in the heavy construction field. Sometimes I get to call the shots and sometimes I just get to operate excavation machines. Due to a general slow down in construction and infrastructure spending it's become a seasonal job which at 60 I don't mind not being outside working in the winter months.

    You and I have a VERY similar job!

    Can I wash your car, or mow your lawn??? Perhaps you need someone to bring you a cup of coffee. Not trying to get in good or anything... but I am going to search frantically through all my threads dealing with Howie's "4-20" guitar and figure out how to obliterate them!

    I work in music. I am currently employed with the development of a group of artists who feel the need to rhyme every sentence with a word that sounds like "bigger" with the same word that sounds like "bigger". I come here to expand my vocabulary and surroundings.
