Interesting posts. I'm a prosthodontist and also a teacher at the local University (same field).
Besides the non IT Slackers here I'm amazed by people like Con Kolivas, being an anesthesiologist and 'amateur' kernel hacker ;-)

Happy Holidays to all!

Hi all,

I'm an environmental planner, but computer stuff has been a hobby of mine since I got a Timex/Sinclair in 1981 or so.

Air Quality Consultant, and being the BOFH for our small company
Where it's mainly a Windows environment, I managed to get 2 Slackware boxes integrated to run our dispersion models* on.

*nope: not that fancy, just VirtualBox running XP, so I van easily archive old and update new versions without downtime.

Programmer. Mainly C++ on Linux. For the last five years I've been working at a big international company, writing redundant control systems software. Before that I was a consultant (programming/sysadmin/security).

I'm an accountant / IT auditor for a public accounting firm. My expertise with IT systems is usually mile-wide, inch-deep, but using Slackware at home has helped make me the local guy to ask UNIX-ish questions to.

Currently unemployed.
I still haven't done much with my life, though I'm probably one of the younger ones here (19).

I would like to be a trucker some day
