Besides, spinning pizzas is just something you do when you wanna impress the customers, or girls, or both.

  Ahhh! I just believed that the centrifugal technique was perhaps a more efficient method for turning out a pie then rolling.
I have watched the roller method. Seems like those I observed applying the rolling technique were working much harder.

@sqlpython:  I have very limited experience making pizza, but it seems that you're likely to tear the center of the pie when spinning the dough.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I'm an organic vegetable farmer. The living's good. Although here in the US of A, a 'good living' typically means you make sacks of money--which I don't.

I write code for an large evil competitor, though I am sure my employers care little about the produce you grow.

So yeah, I code for Biologist/Breeders currently.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Was a waiter at a restaurant while studying for the last four years. Then worked as a business technology analyst at a prominent professional services firm  for 3 months. The money was good but it didn't leave me with any time to prepare for entrance exams so I left that job 2 days before. Feeling relieved now. smile

I am a scientist, but not a typical researcher as I work with methodology and instrumentation. Most of my work is related to thermal-dependent materials characterization.

Re: What do you do for a living?

i process hemp, in a factory. I helped make (weld. bolt, hammer,  etc) the production line - now i run it.
before that - in reverse order, MIG welding, building/repairing refrigerated lorries, cold cast bronze sculpture reproductions.

in a word - manual.
thinking about changing. maybe a classic car mechanic or something.
a sit down office job (i had one for a week) was rubbish, so boring, and i would get fat too.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Registered Architect in the US ... that uses GNU/Linux and Open Source exclusively in my work.

The AIA (an American Architects Fraternity) almost disavowed me for refusing to use AutoCAD, a few years back.  Now, more architectural professionals are using Linux and developing Open Source CAD Applications.

So what are the best open-source architectural CAD applications?  Any in the Debian repos?

Re: What do you do for a living?

My guess is Open Cascade... only because @vrkalak said Open Source.. and while I am not sure it is Open Source it does meet the Debian FSG

since yall were interested I'll expound.  I do research work, form runsheets, cure title defects and talk to land owners for the end result of leasing land to exploit for oil and gas.  Texas has a huge boom on now.  It's definitely destructive to the environment, with this fractured drilling though.  I don't agree with the morals of it,  but someone is gonna do my job if I don't.  That's kind of my stance.  I use the money for good purposes like suporting crunchbang, or golf.  Hopefully the world will someday be more or less ignorant.  Until then I'm gonna range this wild old west.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I also support texas linux fest and debian, since I really run debian stable with my FVWM packages and not crunchbang these days.

Over the years I use a combination of SagCAD and QCad (both are in the Debian repros)
QCad is good, as it saves files in the same format as AutoCAD.
And I use Blender for Orthographic Projections and Architectural Renderings.

There is a new CAD App for Linux -- new but up and coming:  LibreCAD
I can see LibreCAD becoming a major Open Source contender to AutoCAD for the architectural and drafting market, in the near future.
