Freelance Electonics Consultant/"some guy" (not a technologist anymore :) ); I build custom (knock off mostly) electronic devices for people I meet on the internet, or at the bus station. I don't earn much, but I survive by living at my mother's. And yes I have multiple diplomas, and am about to finish a degree.

I'd like to lisence my designs someday, and get fat on royalties; however I've designed only one successful original product, a box with four wires in it :wtf: I'm not going to link it since I am profoundly embarassed by its stupor-inducing simplicity than the fact that it is perpetually on back-order.

I'm a sophomore in college for Computer Engineering, and work in the IT department at my school as well. In the summer and on vacations, I work at my local supermarket. :lol: Today is actually my 3 year anniversary working there, great timing!

I'm about to start my second year perusing a EE degree. During the summer I work at the local ice cream shop and haul junk around in the middle of the night at the local Target. I also do random electronics and computer related odd jobs, like opening up a dead PS3 and getting a game out, which I did today.

I'm a Computer Engineer working for the US Army. Just started a month and a half ago. It's been pretty interesting so far, aside from all the training.

Church musician, result of some very poor decisions. Going back to school for forensics, though. This too shall pass.

my parents make my living, but I'm currently "working" for my school district, setting up computers. The "job" is great, and I've already got 10 computers to harvest parts out of (one even has nothing wrong, but they took the HDDs out of all of them). The good computer is going into my MAME cabinet.

video game store manager/repair tech/ student but the store is closing down(sadly today is the last day the store will be open) because the owner is starting another business and another reason is that the rent jumped up $2,500 a month. Sometime next month I will be a part time locksmith. And still be the fulltime video game repair guy.

I sell shaved and flavored ice out of a tiny metal box. I used to shelve books in a library. I also of course do some odd computer repair jobs when they come along.
