    Work: IT Manager

    Hi all,

    Been in computers most of my working life. I spent two years backpacking around Europe. Have worked mainly in support departments for PC related companies (AutoCad support, ISP support etc). Now running the IT department for national company that's branded as "Human Empowerment". We do various things, such as selling Videos (the teaching type videos, such as "Fish!").

    At home, have a daughter and wife, who keep me busy. Try to spend as much time as possible on hobbies, but they have other ideas. :)

    Glad to see this thread get bumped, :wave: it's really neat to learn what your fellow Gauger does, or used to do...or tries to get away with doing...or not doing...:D :D

    Welcome Trainman4, glad to see that you're getting past your health problems.

    Ahhh, Wickman, very nice, those candles are impressive for sure.:thumb: It would be something if you carved one in the shape of a steam loco.:)

    I was a timber beast/wildlife biologist for the US Forest Service for about 15 years, when I got blown off a mountainside in Colorado by a lightning strike. Went on (forced to) disability, taught myself how to use a computer and now am more or less retired with a digital camera, Photoshop and some HO scale trains to mess around with...

    Almost 15 years combined in the USAF and Air National Guard flying the C-9, C-5B Galaxy and the "Mighty Herc" - the C-130 H3 (97 combat missions in Iraq)...worked for USAirways then Pan Am...now a captain flying a Citation X with NetJets (world's largest fractional ownership company). Started in N scale when I was a teenager and hadn't brought them out of the box since last year after my kids begged me to run them around a simple oval. I also have a serious problem buying diesels I really don't need or have the space to run...yet...but my LHS owner knows me by first name!

    Naw...the only cool part of that posting is that my LHS knows my name finally. I like walking into a place where they are glad you dropped by. But thanks for the thumbs up...though I imagine if everyone started telling their war stories, there'd be quite a few with more interesting stories of true military valor. To those who served down through the years - I respectfully salute.

    Currently working as a Security Guard (recently promoted to Site Supervisor) but looking for something else. Thinking along the lines of network cabler or locksmith.
