    Handy is a professional message board fun sponge. :) Although in real life he's apparently a fun guy! 

    I'm just a tech director/teacher/property manager with a captain's license and am a certified diver..Do all kinds of things to make the bucks with that resume.  Took one of those tests in highschool that tells you what job you'll enjoy. The overwhelming result was "a desk job is not for you, it's got to be one where you're always moving", it's been working out so far!

    Well I started out as a steel mill laborer and also was a state constable part time. Got hurt at work and lost my job so went back to school and got a B.S. in IT (2010). Worked a few regular IT jobs and now am a System Security Engineer for a government contractor. My job is to make it real hard for bad guys to hack into networks. I also daytrade in the stock market since 2013

    Well...literally all over the map. Started shovelling asphalt on a construction crew at 16.
    5 years as a bartender/bouncer. (yep, just like the movie Roadhouse)
    5 years in a gold mine running heavy equipment and setting up high explosives for blasts. Back to school for a degree in marketing and sales. A few years selling newspaper and radio advertising. 13 years as a municipal marketing manager. Back to school. Fully licensed stock broker, financial advisor and life/health insurance business for 6 years. Retired. Spent too much time in the local pub. Went back to work part time in a building supply business just to keep busy. Was asked and accepted a full time position as supervisor of contractor sales, design and custom house builds which I currently do. Hope to cut back to part time in the next 3 to 4 years and fully retire (again) within the next 5. Could retire again now....but I picked up a nasty boating habit!!

    I am a Maintenance/Line Technician for one of, if not the largest, cable company in the world. Started 24 years ago as an installer. I watched the industry go from analog service to digital service. I was on the launch team for high speed internet when it was called @Home. I have been a line guy for 20 years and have been involved with cable going from fiber optics to the neighborhood to fiber to the home.
