For just over 30 years, I worked in the red meat industry. I was making hot dogs, bologna and assorted deli meats. Since almost 4 years ago, I switched to the "other side" of the sandwich. I now make bread and buns! Isn't that a 180 degree turn? !!!

I got into computers when I couldn't afford to have someone do the simple stuff - like installing a cdrom. Cost me $29 the first time. I vowed never to do that again. Fixing folks MS machines is now just a hobby that helps pay the bar bill.

If I may be so bold...what job do you do? Just curious.

I worked for about half a year as a Certified Nursing Assistant in a skilled nursing facility, Med/Surg floor of a hospital, and ICU. I didn't last long in that particular field-- lots of tedious work with little to no reward, except for the occasional grateful patient.

I am currently a stay-at-home dad with my five-month old son, grocery store stock clerk, and I'm studying to become an Emergency Medical Technician.

My what a mixed bunch we are. I guess that Linux isn't just for scientists and computer specialists. Maybe we should start a new rumour/FUD

"Linux is for everyone and it will make you a richer person".


P.S. richer in all senses of the word

Yes, Slackers have infiltrated all walks of life. Now we only need to think of a CONSPIRACY.

Retired now. Worked, or pretended to, in engineering: machine operating mostly, some fitting and electical assembly. Should really have been one of the idle rich, instead of the idle poor...but that's life.
