I am a "Development Manager/Software Architect" at a software (non-gaming) company. (I think that is my job title, I forget). Basically I am the lead programmer of a team at my company and I also manage my little department and participate in "product management" meetings.

degree: BA Telecommunications (Baylor Univ)
job: I work at a scheduling desk for a 3rd party service provider for dell.  I'm mircomanaged and the pay is complete fucking shit.  I could have done this job when I was 12.

Job-wise, this past year has been a sick joke on me.  I was about to be hired by Origin as a GM when EA Satan moved the studio to California.  I'd basically gone through the interview, been assured I would be hired, then picked up the newspaper one shitty morning and saw that my company was gone.

I'm the wife of my house.  I used to work in artist management but it gave me the shakes.  I've mostly worked in techy jobs, such as systems administration, database admin, networky stuff, etc.  All crap jobs.  It took me years but I finally figured out that most work is not beneficial to my mental health.  

PS  I knew Paelos was an accountant!  He has that air of quiet perviness about him. ;p (Poor Paelos, why do I taunt him so?)
