Default Re: Our Jobs

Have a few titles..
Day job: Ka Comm Inc. I'm an emergency vehicle technician, I take a bone stock car and build a police car, fire, ems, etc. from top to bottom. We install 911 dispatch centers, maintain communication backbones (I climb towers ). It's a lot of fun.
Volunteer: Blue TWP Fire/Rescue, been there for a year and 3 months. I'm also a volunteer PD. Only 19 so it gives me good experience, at 21 I'll be applying to be a career LEO.

Hey, I loved my Clié, in it's time it was an excellent PDA, wouldn't trade my smartphone for it today but I liked it above the Palm devices it competed with. Mine is still around here somewhere, still works too.

I had a good system though by the time I left. Pay sucked royally, but you can't beat the vacations and snow days though!

Still have some photos from that job if you'd like to see. Careful observers will note the lone mac among a sea of PCs.

Well I do have support and a little more advanced network. AD has been setup for some time, but this is only my 4th year here so I'm still tweaking things to my liking. I usually end up working the snow days and I only get 10 days off in the summer. But I do love this job - I was going to be a teacher but went this route instead.

I upgraded from the Clié to a Palm T|X some years ago and am still loving it. I think I'm on my fourth or fifth unit (hard to tell, as I've replaced and/or repaired mine and my wife's T|Xs so many times...) now, and almost killed my current one the other day.

I will have to put it aside, eventually, though and I worry about finding a good calendar app that can replace the functionality of DateBk6.

On-topic, I was an instructor for ten years and still do a little on-the-side, as it were, at my church. I thought about doing the teaching gig, but I prefer to teach adults who actually want to be there, so for me it have to be either a vocational course or college-level.

As it is, I have solid employment doing something I love doing... with enough time there, the money will start to pick up again.
