I get a lot of flack for my job so I won't exactly spell it out for everyone. But I am sure you can figure it out. I still remember the look on my wife's face when I told her what I would be doing.

Me: So I got I new job today. But you aren't going to like it.
Her: You got a new job what, what's not to like?
Me: I will be designing *adult educational* websites.
Her: * disappointed look on her face* Oh...

Part owner (1/3) of small IT company, mainly serving financial companies (equities etc). Work mainly on Solaris and Sybase, most development done with Python, SQL and a smidgeon of C. Slackware preps you nicely for Solaris work.

What exactly is this *occupation* stuff yer all on about?

For the record, and in no particular order- security guard, truck driver, metallurgist, cab driver, machinist, advertising copywriter & account executive, business owner (multi-national franchise, I owned 4 centres over a 12 year period), office administrator, retail business manager, cook.

I'm currently 53, and trying to decide what-to-reinvent-myself-as for the stretch drive to permanent retirement....
