    Whats your day job?

    Curious what folks day job is (in general terms)?
    How or if it has anything to do with woodworking?

    I'll start:
    • Computer jockey (sort of hybrid system admin/programmer and no I don't do windows ).
    • Nothing, but its a great way to get your head put back on right.

    I help run a woodworking forum.

    On the side I'm a computer jockey (surprise) too, 99% programming anymore, but used to manage mid-range systems. Nothing to do with woodworking, grew up building stuff and always been a part of me.

    I was National Sales Manager for a construction product manufacturer until the economy trashed. I took early retirement and now work at Lowes part time.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
