Slackers' Occupations


I'm just curious. Slackware empowers the user, but its price is having an understanding of what is going on. Are most Slackers IT professionals? So, what do you do?

Well, let me be the first to not fit the profile of IT professional . I am a registered nurse by profession with 22 years experience in an Intensive Care Unit, only 10 years to go before retirement!

I am an elementary school teacher currently in my 28th year. I have a BA in Psychology/Philosophy and a professional teaching certificate. I'm a technology hobbyist who thoroughly enjoys Slackware.

I'm on my way to becoming an architect

(By the nature of results so far, seems like your assumption is in need of adjustment)

I have no need for work, as I am a french aristocrat and sole heir of the Montblanc snail farm empire.

I do, however, have worries, as peasents do, about my future solvency. I find myself down to my last two diamond studded umbrella's, although I am still in possession of a life sized camel made entirely out of gold, which my late father discovered and spirited out of Egypt while on an archeological dig there.
