      don't have a proffesion yet.. I'm sure it will be something in the field of computers, programming, design, architecture.. I dunno.

      Website design has been an amazing highschool job for me though... make my own hours, good $. Only problem is finding business

              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.

                    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.

                      28...and feeling a little old!

                      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.

                          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?
