    I'm retired. <------------Hah! That's the kind of funny that doesn't make you laugh.

    I (used to) do 24/7 emergency on call heavy equipment repair. I also (did) do machining or other misc. repairs whenever the mood strikes me or a particularly lucrative job comes up.

    Trying to sever the chain but people keep calling and I keep saying "Yeah okay I'll be there."

    Retired now. Did analytical toxicology in a veterinary diagnostic lab for 33 years. Do some part-time work at a YMCA now, just to get my wife off my back and keep me in guilt free flashlights.

    Yeah, they can be expensive. It's all about good money-management. I work as a Security Guard. But I've got a few expensive lights in my collection. Bills are paid, plenty of food in the fridge, and still some money left over that goes in the bank.

    Logan...you must be at Utah State. I'm down at the Zoobie and returned from Seattle uhh...awhile ago. (16 months?)

    I'm a college student, Mechanical Engineering, and I do odd-jobs for a web-design company. Some days I'm a designer, some days I'm a copyrighter, some days I'm the IT guy, some days I insert content...I do everything short of full-blown web-development.

    Clearly a n00b. You have to balance value of the unit itself unless it's limited production or serves a special purpose (maybe a lightweight piece for hiking trips, or one that fits and matches the interior of your ride). Also, try looking for some of the nicer units online (sale) or eBay, CL, etc.

    I don't think it's the Ares constellation that is referred to in his avatar per say, but rather the Ares I rocket. That is also what the picture is of above.

    I'm a chef at "America's Greatest History Attraction". We have several food service operations and I rotate managing the kitchens. I'm actually typing this from one of the offices I use. Today I'm running a kitchen that is connected to an 1840's tavern that has only candles for light in the dining room and the menu is straight from the history books. The other side of the kitchen services a large cafeteria style unit that can feed thousands of people a day.

    My avatar is the logo of the Ares program, which is umbrellaed under the Constellation program, hence the confusion.

    I saw someone around here with a Orion avatar....

    Well.. Not a secret and easy to imagine that I design flashlights, and some other lighting things.

    At least Barbolights are for free in my collection!!

    I am a Ceramic Engineer in the research and development group of an aerospace life support company. We are developing devices that separate oxygen from air at an *extremely* high rate of purity and can deliver it at any pressure you want up to 3000 psi.

    Since I mostly work with ceramic powders, I am something like a glorified mud pie baker. My user name is derived from the idea that I make a living working with what amounts to expensive mud.

    In addition to true ceramic engineering, I also do mechanical, electrical, and pneumatic design, test equipment design and construction, data acquisition, and custom fixturing. If we need it, I buy it or build it. If it breaks, I fix it. And lately I have been working with other programs at my company to help solve their problems using statistical approaches to problem solving (six sigma).
