Re: What do you do for a living?

@ orionthehunter

I also use Linux full time at home and at work. My school told me I can do whatever I want with my work computer as long as I can teach with it and they don't have to fix it.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I used to write software for doctors.  Then I was some sort of hippy.  Then I learned how to fix bowling machine.  If you;ve never seen the workings of a bowling machine, go find one asap and check it out.  Currently im running servers and writing code for a handfull of moderatly large websites from all different corners of the internets

Re: What do you do for a living?

I am a programmer.

Was surprised by the variety of occupations here, which is great! I have never known a Linux user in person outside computer circles.

Re: What do you do for a living?

I really love these forums with the diversity and friendliness. The #! community really is the nicest.
After getting my degree in Economics at UT Austin I worked in some restaurants till I got sober yikes Then I worked as a "collection officer" for a small company that bought defaulted loans from the FDIC. After three years of that a friend that had a small consulting company gave me a copy of Delphi (object oriented pascal) and told me to get to work as a programmer. I worked with him for a few years doing custom software and then turned him on to Linux. Now his business is based on Linux! I did a year programming for a large video rental company. The last 13 years I have been a developer for a very large bank. I started doing Delphi + CORBA client server apps. Then was moved to C# web development, and at the end of last year I was sent to Java training to do sites in Java.  I use Windows to make money, and Linux to live wink

Re: What do you do for a living?

Some friends and I started a sort of Cinema-lounge bistro thing. It's a blast to be a part of this (I'm actually the owner of it). Apart from that I'm a free-lance editor / translator as well.

Back on topic, my education is in metallurgy, but I work as a Linux & Windows sysadmin for an academic department at a certain large private university that just won the Rose Bowl.
