What do you do to earn your living?
I'll Start...

I've been a few things professionally, always telecom related.
Been part of the national cable company for about 13 years (thus the nick), then I tried the commercial side of it... In 3 months 1 brought 1 client..
Went off track for a bit, and from 5 years up to now, I work in the French telecom infrastructure, creating new F.O. nodes for clients to connect to.
Here's some pics:

I joined the Australian Navy straight after school, so I am a qualified Electronics Technician. Specialising in Computers (not PC's), RADAR, SONAR and other digital electronics. So then after leaving, I took up IT, specifically in support and administration. So now, 25 years later, I'm an IT consultant, specialising in Infrastructure.
Oh yeah, I've been programming since 1984, and continue programming today. I'm currently working on a system to convert Visio documents into dependency diagrams for System Centre Operations Manager and System Centre Service Manager. It analyses each of the systems you document, creates Management Packs for input into SCOM and finally produces a runbook that dictates the order that you turn on each of your x (this client has 600) Servers. Pretty cool stuff, I don't think anyone else is doing anything similar.

In my spare time I like to work on my Nissan 300ZX, which I recently converted from Normally Aspirated to Twin Turbo. It's now making 355HP at the wheels, so I'm pretty happy with it.

Oh yeah, and of course I wrote (and continue to improve) the B4X Object Browser.

That makes me an Electronics Technician, Programmer, Analyst, Consultant, Mechanic, Welder and Father.

I no longer do software development for a living. I have, for the last 42 years (since age 14) loved fixing and building cars. My degree says I'm an Automotive Powertrain Engineer, but I just build custom cars in my small shop and then sell them. I have also been doing a video editing and production service for the last couple of years. The cars pay the bills and the video stuff feeds my creative side.
