    the correct answer is “as little as possible”

    the real answer is I’m a tech specialist at an elementary school, 500 or so computers, 2-300 ipads, 40ish classroom audio/video systems, bunch of printers and stuff and whatever else they think may be “tech” are my responsibility.  other “tech” include staplers, file cabinets,  desks, assembling shelves, etc.  it is a great gig, many days I have literally nothing to do, other days i’m running my butt off, but it’s very low key, low pressure (low pay), I’m basically my own boss and it’s fun helping all the teachers and kids instead of some ungrateful angry management types in the corporate IT jobs I had before this.

    Huhh… you guys all have fun adventurous jobs. I am in fact an “ungrateful angry management type in corporate IT” (maybe not the ungrateful though). So I really needed a hobby like Blender and VPX 🤓

    Worked as a machinist / mechanic 12 years after school. Then switched to CAD constructing prototype cars for big carmanufacturers. You know, those fancy BlingBling future science fiction ones that look like TerryRed’s cab!

    My title says. Senior System Engineer. What better describes it though is Linux System admin at the National Library of Norway. We have a fair amount of data to take care of. Currently around 9 Petabyte. Because of the amount we quite often have to migrate our data from one system to a new. Our daily average growth is approx 3T.

    LMFAO am I the only one that does real work ? Manual labor I mean :whistle: did construction for the last 18 yrs…. now back into maintenance mechanic..

    You guys are all fuckin desk jockeys B-) Must be a nice easy life ;-) LOL…………..

    No wonder why you guys got time to make tables :-)

    LOL, changed career after busting my ass for 10+ years scraping a living as a live sound engineer (highly seasonal work, crazy weird hours, lots of physical stuff, drunk customers, drunk bands, etc)      Took the opportunity to transition out of that when it presented itself (wasn’t sure i would still be having fun with that at 50 for example as would have meant a lot of touring, etc)… Happier now in the office job – work smarter not harder!!

    Lot of IT folks in this hobby it seems tho, which is a good thing!
