supercomputing institute ? that sounds important. What all does that encompass ?
Mostly just maintaining their website, but it is in need of some cosmetic updates, so it'll be getting a facelift. I also do a ton of programming and database management for certain information on the website.

on my 3rd full time job:-)
web application developer (CGI, PERL, PHP, ASP, Coldfusion), network and server (Sun Solarsis and Win NT/2k) administrator for 2 years
unemployed for 9 months -> sucks A$$
where i am now: Corporate Procurement IS Specialist. I do about $5 million of spend on IS equipment for 10 locations of the company i work for. moving them from the paper age to the paper-less age. :-P
right now I am preparing to go to grad school for information security:-) my current job is just a holding area to rebuild my $$'s lost from unemployment. I *almost* had a sweet gig as a county computer foresenics officer...but when i got to the final stage for polygraph, they wanted a list of all the pirated software i have used in my ENTIRE life. i had asked my investigator previous to the polygraph if i had to disclose, but he just wanted $$ amount. *sighs* but i have made a list for when they re-hire again, and cleaned up most of my act with being part of the MS consultant licencing for $280/yr that gives you loads of stuff.
done lots of private consulting over the past 7 years...my first computer was a 8086 and a Commodore 64 *grins* never been the same since.

Started out working in the hobby business...with anything RC. Worked from 93 to 02 in the baddest hobby store in Oregon. Around 2000 i decided I needed a long term career, not just a job, so I went thru the ASSET program from Ford and got both my Associates degree and passed my ASSET training, graduating with a 3.97gpa. I went to work for Ford and left my hobby job behind, and now I wish I was back to having fun in a nice air conditioned stress free store. I have learned the hard way that it is better to do what you want and get paid less, than to be paid more for something that you dont enjoy. Now I am stuck and I cant really change careers and still pay the bills.
Im 19 here, college freshman. Mechanical engineering major (in the closet computer science person). Ive been doing computers as long as is humanily possible for a person of my age. I have everything from a IBM Personal Computer 8086 and Comodore 64 to whatever is in last months popular science. Arnt computers awesome?

minnesota supercomputing insitute? I would guess that involves keeping a highspeed Counter-Strike server up and running on the Internet 2 connection.
sounds like a cool place, what do you actually do there? And i assume you are on the Internet 2 backone, right?
