Retired/independently wealthy/too lazy to work.

Older than you.

Used to do an odd variety of techy and non-techy things for money, like programming, hardware repair, consulting, fine woodworking.  I made ~800 ukuleles by hand in two years, my head exploded from the tedium, and I 'retired' to the country, where I play computer games, manage a small website for a non-profit, and complain about the weather.

Working tech support for Cox Communications. A mind-numbingly boring job that pays the bills while I follow leads on "real" IT jobs. Sadly for me those are hard to come by in Oklahoma.

23, Male, Public School Teacher in South Korea.

Graduated from a US university with a degree in English Lit, which means I'm more qualified to be teaching than most of the native speakers over here, but still not exactly trained. I came here to travel the world a bit and see how much I like teaching. Traveling the world = double plus good. Teaching = usually rewarding, occasionally tediuos, very well paying (here), but in the long run, not for me. Which means I'll be leaving Korea once my contract is up, and then continue to wander the globe.

I've been alive for 33 years, but maturity-wise, I'm an infant.

For money I write technical documents for a software company in Irvine, California. Yes, I'm the guy who writes the help files you people never read.

In my spare time, I game (online and PnP) and write novels that will never get published.

Um, never mind.

As long as you don't write the help files for Microsoft products we're cool.  I have a whole list of painful atrocities I'm going visit on the first one of them fuckers I come across.  Like we'll sit down at a computer and look for help on X and everywhere in that help file it says to see Y and then in the Y help file says to see X I'm going to stick a rusty pin in thier eye.  I'm going to need a lot of pins.

I wholeheartedly disagree.
If it wasn't for badly written documentation, I would be out of a job. We can sell 150.000+ issues 17 times a year teaching people how to do stuff in Windows, Word and a number of other supposedly welldocumented applications.
And we make a lot of money doing it.
