Re: What do you do for a living?

I work at Office Depot, selling tech, fixing computers as far as the boss will let me, and fulfilling the role as resident smart-ass. (I know, the last sounds so unlike me...)

Re: What do you do for a living?

Ahhh free stuff... folk can get twitchy when you're asked to pay for it... big_smile

I'm a full time parent... My living revolves around stopping the kids from damaging themselves or something expensive and trying to keep them off my keyboard and mouse!

I used to work for the NHS as an Aux Nurse and previous to that 10 years in IT... which I hated... far more fun tweaking your own kit and caboodle tongue

Re: What do you do for a living?

I am an Auxiliary Nurse, though they re-branded us as Healthcare Assistants. Although I did go to college to study IT. Go figure....

Re: What do you do for a living?

It's interesting to see such a diversity. I was expecting everyone to be software engineers or other computer related stuff.

For my own part, I study philosophy at the university, which - in this commie country - is actually possible to do for a living, as long as I turn in my masters thesis no more than a year later than the ordained time. This semester i have been able to supplement the education support with an instructor position, which is good for the bank account, but very stressful.

It would be interesting if people, like our architect, wrote how they use our common interest - Linux - in their jobs. I don't think, I do anything that I could not do on Windows - take notes in Zim, write assignments in LaTeX or LibreOffice, but it appeals to me that Linux is not so deeply rooted in the symbolic order of capitalism than the alternatives, though Canonical, Red Hat, and others to some extent are. It is difficult to say what the Open Source community means in that context, but at least it is the possibility of something else.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I have worked in home automation and custom audio/video for the pat twelve years. I describe myself as a systems integrator. As such, I spend virtually all of my work hours in W7 and/or OSX. Unfortunately there is nothing even remotely close to professional in Linux that applies to home automation. I do, periodically, get to build Vortexbox/Fedora based NASs for clients and I do a sh!t ton of work building enterprise level networks in people's homes.

I absolutely love my work (I am well payed to play with wealthy folks' toys) but, I literally rush home to open my Linux boxes at the end of the day.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Doctoral student in Psychology. I write and run Matlab code to fit mathematical models of memory. But I could do that in Windows.

My preference for Linux comes from my previous life in computer game Quality Assurance. Before I went back to school and got my undergrad, I worked on and led QA teams. Being poorly paid I could only afford *cheap* computers - this was just before the Xbox 1 was released (2000/2001). Linux was a natural choice for the OS and, from that point on, I was addicted to Debian. The transparency of the open source model felt like a breath of fresh air, and Linux made computing fun again.

Computing should always be fun. What I love about these forums (and this thread) is that people are having loads of fun with #! and are supporting one another. You've put a smile on my face. Thanks folks.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Things around video (promo producer), 90 % is video editing (also do scriptwriting, directing, lightning and camera work, "director of camera machine"). Wallpapers, flying pinguins, scripting, linix and stuff like that are all anti-depresives for me.

Re: What do you do for a living?

By trade, I'm a finish carpenter.
I went from tree-trimmer -> ropes-course construction -> Cabinetmaker
However with today's economy it's impossible. Now I teach middle school English and science teacher in South Korea. Best job I have ever had. Tons of free time, fast internet, and very fair wages.

Re: What do you do for a living?

Along the lines of Super-Nathan, and John Raff, and some others, I'm an English teacher of sorts.

I've been working in rural Japan as an assistant English language teacher in elementary and middle schools for the past 4 years.  I studied linguistics and Japanese in college, and have been learning a lot about pedagogy since I started this job... But it ends after next year.

At that point?  I dunno... maybe I'll write books.  Can I market them to you guys?  Maybe I'll write about ninja linguists.

Edit:  Someone asked how we use Leenox in our day jobs.  Its my full-time OS at work, mixed with some android and OS X at home.  Beyond the obvious, I use Inkscape for designing lots of classroom materials, Audacity for making/editing audio materials, and Anki for studying.
