I'm an electronic engineer by degree specialising in DSP. BUT:
I've worked in university as software engineer dealing with c++ programming in linux.
worked in IT in my base while in serving in the army.

currently working as a hydrologist civil engineer - who would have thought that system modeling is based on the same maths whether you talk about electronic circuits or hydrologic catchment areas!

I'm also IT 'ing for the same consulting firm; have managed to get a slack router box up and running, soon enough the windows file server will be replaced too

Amateur musician i'm also trying to do my 1st recording steps in slack based DAW.

I must say I'm extremely impressed by the professions of slackers out there!

I am amazed. I thought for sure that every one was going to be part of some IT job. Not what I expected but pretty cool none the less. I am a 17 year old student at a local high school. Although I plan on going to college for Computer Science. I do mostly programing stuff. C++, Java, C, Assembly.

I did 20+ years as a Engineer/Stainless Steel Fabricator (the last 11 were as a contractor). Not sure how I managed it but sometime in the mid 90's I started a second business Selling/repairing computers which eventually replaced the Engineering completely.

Sometime around 96 I discovered Slackware and Linux. Praise Bob!

I now work as a Systems Admin/Manager for a reasonably high profile local company. I also get to dust off my engineering skills now and then when we need custom hardware designed.

Computer salesman and repair technnician - PC( Win - Linux ) and mac. I spend all day repairing windows machines with a linux based toolkit built on top of slitaz, and I use slackware at home.

I've been a linux user for 3 years, and have spent the last 2.5 with slackware (ubuntu to debian to zenwalk to slackware).

Worked for about 6 years as a data center tech; building/racking/cabling servers.
Lost my job, so now I'm back at school going for a BS in Computer Information Systems, as a GED just doesn't get you very far professionally.
