Re: What's your day job?

Windows sysadmin here also.

As for why I got into linux, it just seemed fun. I'd consider myself an intermediate/power user as there's still a lot to learn. I don't plan on doing a LAMP stack or anything. Just like to fiddle around when the mood strikes me.


The meaning of life is to just be alive. It is so plain and so obvious
    and so simple. And yet everybody rushes aroound in a great panic
             as if it were necessary to achieve something beyond themselves.

Is that a fancy name for courier?

@damo...Sounds like a cool job.  I figured you were into IT and/or graphics design.

Me...unemployed.

It is the correct term for a motorcycle courier, yes.

Re: What's your day job?

Thanks KrunchTime! I could have sworn I saw it previously... it sucks to get old!
I thought about seeing something from HoaS about motorcycles, but I could not remember.
I also remember somebody posting pictures of their bicycle as well! Sorry as my 8 year old son tells me,

Re: What's your day job?

I figured out that I was old when my son say me writing down all of this stuff for his mom, he said "Dad, why don't you just take a picture instead of writing all of that" and send it to her! I thought the brilliance of youth in it's prime! :-)

Re: What's your day job?

Damo should we do the same with topdollar?  After all his kid says such wonderful things.

@ topdollar and KrunchTime - you know you're getting old when a healthy 20-something young lady gets up to offer you her seat on the bus.  I just smile and said "I'm good thanks."  (in Spanish of course).  But in my mind, "Well, that's it, YOU'RE OLD!"  mad

In my mind I'm still 30ish.  Problem is when body parts start screaming "NO! YOU ARE NOT 30-something! SLOW DOWN!"  lol

Re: What's your day job?

Really interesting thread. I truly admire all the non-IT folks on this forum who are interested to learn Linux on their own.

Currently I'm an IP voice admin which translates into a lot of time spent working with class 4 and class 5 softswitches, various IP telephony vendors' equipment and standard Linux systems.

I have a saying...you know you're getting old when you see antique license plates on vehicles that were newer during your youth.

Wow brother, that's my life in a nutshell! Now I am not a huge country music fan but Toby Keith has a song called "As Good as I Once Was" and it stuck a bell with me!

Once again, not trying to hijack the thread!   smile
