Im in the Telcom trade. Started in 1991 got my contracting liscense in 2002. Mostly has been utility company work AT&T, Verison, Surewest,etc...(regulated side). Specilize in outside plant construction and maintance (aerial, ground, and underground). Lately has been mostly college campuses, military bases, air ports, Citiy and County work, and large commercial expansion projects.(deregulated side). Lots of copper splicing, some fiber splicing, and lots of travel. Having a contraction liscense makes it more than a day job. 12 to 18 hour days bidding the jobs, working the jobs, invoicing the jobs, sometimes squirrelly employees and inspectors, and sometimes collecting my money. Also, the family business, small time land development. (only way we'll have a retirement)

I was a CNC machinist for 7 years, and have been doing the programming for the past two. My favorite parts were gimbal mounts for Raytheon. They make all da missiles!

Hopefully, they've been put to good use by now.

Direct G & M coding is becoming a lost art due to CAM software. Creating a CAM post is not programming.

I hope some of the stuff I did for 8-1/2 years is never used, because they went on nuclear missles.

I know some of the stuff I used to make is being used on the Predator II.

Some stuff I can not even talk about, ever.

I would never attempt to make a lower receiver or any other serialed part for any firearm on my own, and I would never post it anywhere.

I wish I had a mysterious job like skullcrusher.

I'm in the construction field and I am working towards my ultimate contractors license. I have been through the police academy and am waiting for the economy to turn around so I can get a job as a police officer.

They Come from everywhere, Just riding down the road. You wouldn't beleive the things we see, Sometimes i don't beleive what i see.

The license comes from the state it's called a CDL.
