Test Manager here. Started off in electrical engineering nearly 30 years ago, then spent several years working for the emergency services in disaster management. I get to have Slackware on desktops and servers at work (along with a bunch of non-Slackware OSs) and Slackware at home. IT-wise I'm pretty lucky.

Latest definition of an optimist. Buying a fifth day ticket and expecting a full days play.

OK - You will probably go home 3-1 up. Last time round you went home 0-5 down.

Long live the battle for the Ashes!

My hat off to you sir for buying that ticket; sounds like very few Aussies turned up. Anyways yes a great series for us, but you know it won't be long before the tide turns again - I can't see an Australian side staying this poor for long. Roll on 2013..

Hope the barmy army don't keep too much of the country awake tonight.

(apologies to all non English or Australian Slackers - probably best not to ask..)

Pathologist.

Now if the NHS ran on slackware it would be a good thing. Since the ending of the NHS agreement with Microsoft, hospitals have to pay an extra 200-400 on each PC deployed. They could at least make a start by ditching MS Office.

But they won't.

I always enjoy these threads - I'm a Special Ed teacher working with behavior disorders. I'm 45 and have sprayed lawns, worked at pawnshops, as a jewelry store manager, insurance adjuster, run termite spray lines, been a head hunter, mental health counselor, ran fast food restaurants geez I make my self tired looking at all the junk I've done lol. I love Arch linux and Slack but I have to admit I'm always frustrated with wireless on both - other than that no complaints

Seems like about every 10 years I change jobs for one reason or another. Once an electronics tech working on black boxes and the computer controlled test equipment for the boxes in the military. Next maintenance tech for chicken plant fixing electronic weigh scales. Now I run the shop for a metal roofing company bending up metal trim all day. Once in a while I get to play IT tech when someone has a computer problem in the office. Well guess what, 10 years is up, maybe I'll break the pattern this time, jobs are hard to find now.
