    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!:D

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

    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.

    I'm just a run of the mill, full time, Technical Sergeant in the Montana Air National Guard with a RED HORSE unit.

    I do alot of things which I will not divulge, but when I'm not busy trying to cover up crashed space aliens, my duties take me all over the world.

    So far I've been to:

    Germany (multiple locations)
    New Foundland
    Italy
    Portugal
    Azores
    Turkey (multiple locations)
    Persian Gulf (multiple locations)
    Iraq
    All over the United States

    Not a bad deal so far. 11 years into it, and I plan on going at least 20-24 years and retiring. Once I retire, I plan on doing something like a hunting or fishing guide. If that doesn't work out, I'll get a part time job at a gun shop (talk about fun work...lol).

    I operate various types of heavy equipment in a limestone quarry. Skidsteers, backhoes, loaders, excavators, and very large dumptrucks. I get paid to sit behind the wheel of a $500,000 truck with 550 Hp and haul rock and listen to rock music all day.

    I drive one like this:

    I used to run one of[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_rxvdXIw7Q"] these.[/ame] My boss used to yell at me because I could pack 2x as much dirt in my as it was rated to carry. I also ran front end loaders, track hoes, bobcats, D4, D6, D7, and D8 dozers and Cat 963 track loaders. Ran some off road trucks for a while as well. The scraper and the track loader were the most fun.
