NOOOOOOO of course not! At least thats what they said in the interview! I might as well be teaching APATHY 101, because nobody cares! Weekend riding is my only form of sanity.

Dude,I have nothing but the upmost respect for you and your profession.
Thanks for doing what most wouldnt even consider.
:) :D :D

I have a BS in Chemistry and work as a sales/service consultant for a small chemical company. We provide on site service and sell our line of chemicals to treat the insides of boilers and cooling towers for hospitals, schools, factories etc in order to keep them from developing scale. I also do industrial wastewater treatment and chemical consulting.

I'm an old IBM main frame systems programmer. However, now days they are more like a server on steroids! :) I am currently working as a consultant for a California state agency. I prefer riding over working but haven't figured out how to get paid to do it yet. :D

I am a Telecoms Engineer for Ericssons AXE equipment in GSM cellphone core networks.
I used to do implementation scripts for various phone operators, but now my (entire departement) tasks have evolved to just sit in front of a computer writing manuals (boring as h*ll).
I also work at a 7-eleven once or twice a week (five to midnight) to be able to afford riding. Me and the wife just had our first child, so money is VERY tight - but one has to ride :)

Hmmm, looks like Banffboy might have the best part time job here...

Right now I guess I got it pretty good, have 7 days a week to ride and I get an unemployment check mailed to me every two weeks.

Unfortunately that will all be coming to an end this Monday as I resume my career as a bewildered mechanical engineer doing very little related to mechanical engineering. Took a sink or swim job of being responsible for the growth and success of a start up HVAC service company as a spin off of an existing construction company. Ought to be quite interesting as I am next to clueless! :)

I am a Firewall Administrator and Network Technician. I work for an energy trading firm (natural gas and electricity) and believe me when I say I'm thankful that we're not clients of Arthur Andersen! I've been working with computer networks since 1994 and riding motorcycles since 1979. I have three big loves in my life: My family, computers and motorcycles!

Nuclear Power Plant's Nuclear Systems Operator at Seabrook Station.

I meander aimlessly around the plant looking at stuff (monitoring all operating equipment outside the Control Room).

I get paid for what I know, not necessarily what I do. (I look, listen, feel, smell the plant operate, and determine if it is doing it correctly).

The U.S. Navy trained me to competantly operate/run the mechanical watchstations of a U.S. Navy Trident Class Missle submarine's engineroom (USS Tennessee)

They (navy) forced down my throat:

Heat Transfer and fluid flow
Mechanical theory
basic electrical/electrical theory
basic electronics
reactor physics
radiation worker/handler
steam propulsion and electricl generation systems
refrigeration/air conditioning

When I am at home, my specialties are:

master chef
laundry technician
professional snow removal technician
profeesional lawn care technician
drywall specialist
carpet/wood floor installer guy
auto mechanic
VCR/TV repair technician
Educational Tutor
Alpha Dog (to my dog, Fargo)
FCR Carburator Tuner/Struggler
Computer repair/builder guy
Northwood Town drunk :)
the guy that drives too fast in the neighborhood

Yamaha WRF400 Rider/Owner/Mechanic
