Your Day Job

All right, frequent Pingers. It’s time to ask the big question: what do you do for a day job? That is, when you’re not looking through the Archives and buying Ping merchandise. -pm

I once owned a small accounting firm in London where I apprenticed a young man by the name of Ebenezer Scrooge.
After that I got into some street hustling and pimping. Those were dark days.
Now, I've straightened out my life and I'm working in Cleveland OH as a project coordinator in the Human Resources/Leadership Development Department for Eaton Corporation.

I'm Ryan's beeyotch. But only on weekends and every other Thursday.

Usually I'm a geeky programmer, though.

We won't get into what I do by night.

My day job (and also my night job and my weekend job) is 'component design engineer' which is the job title my employer gives to people who develop microprocessors.

Most recently the Pentium 4 (which has been my life for the last 2.5 years), and now onto its successors.

It's the best job in the world.

So, you haven't told us what you do, Paul??

Oh, me? I'm officially an "Internet Developer", but the majority of my tasks fall into the web design side of things. I have also designed some credit cards and print materials.

My computer has a property of NASA sticker on it. For them I write Fortran. And Matlab. I like Matlab better. I'm still a student, but this round I'm getting PAID for it! Mwa ha ha ha ha!

Robert, your job title is "Fiendish Observational Comedian", if I remember correctly. At least it is here. :)

Student, Cashier/Janitor, Computer tech support. I only get paid $5.75/hr at my normal job, but when I do support I charge $12/hr...so I end up with about $90 at the end of the week, (for a 15 year old...is enough.)

Ryan,
I left off Pimp because it goes without saying. But I think I'm the only Pimp who turns down sexual offers.
