I'm currently a student a Univ. of Idaho. Right now my concerns are planning tomorrow's keg/BBQ and what time do I want to hit the bar tonight. You gotta love college. Next fall I will graduate with my BS in Secondary Ed. Eagle 426, I tip my hat to ya. There is no amount of money you could give me to teach where you are at. I prefer the small towns and schools.

Manual machinist and I manage a cnc machine shop with 3 haas vertical mills and 2 haas lathes.
Solidworks for modeling, mastercam for post processing.
I am starting my own cylinder head shop on the side after seeing the junk repairs people charge good money for.
30,000 yz-f's and wr's are going to need head work sooner or later.
I also used to manage Kibblewhite precision machine, home of the black diamond valve, so I got to see how to do it right.

I'm a tech writer for AT&T Wireless. Can you say BORING! Pays not bad though. I used to work for software companies as a tech writer (boring but not as bureucratic as here). Before that I was a tech trainer/instructional designer(CRM, MS SQL Server). Thought I would try tech writing for a change. What a mistake! Now I'm pigeon holed as a tech writer. :)

Recently saw the movie "Office Space", got sick every time I showed up for work for a week. Great movie though! "Where's my stapler?"

In another life years ago I was in sales. I am thinking about getting back into it, maybe try to find a job with a motorcycle company. Not to many of those jobs out there if you don't want to work at a dealer.

Interesting to hear what everyone is doing.

I create environments that encourage bio-diversity of plant and wildlife. I also develop public recreation and agricultural landscapes.

An early phase of these types of terrain change involves extracting mineral resources.....

OK, OK, I am in quarry management!

Electrical Engineer by qualification, but I love the outdoors.

And, NO you cannot practice in my quarries!!
