I am working at a world leading cell phone deisgn company in Chicagoland, my current project just shipping is called E770, next is going to be much cooler! I write component specifications and qualify parts for those cell phones, working with the electrical component suppliers to develop the parts and supply them to us and the qualification info that we need. I used to work in the factory on them analyzing manufacturing failures. Then got into Engineering and learned Mentor Graphics and the mess of Automotive parts qualification. I have been all over Engineering, from portable analog cell phones, to analog mobile phones, to OnStar (several iterations of) and Mercedes Benz E-Call2, to 3G cell phones.

N0DIH, Im sure you are privvy to all the up and coming technologies in the cell phone industry. I recently picked up an XV6600 from UTStarcom so I could get on the EV-DO bandwagon. I love it, I cant believe how quickly one can surf on a phone of all things these days. Ive heard that with CDMA it actually requires hardware upgrades to the network which take longer to roll out, while with GPRS (T-Mobile, Cingular) all they have to do is software updates, but their system is slower (EDGE) and has some lag time associated with it.

They're meant to be very good. Although how much of that is their claim of fanatical support vs actual support I don't know.

We've had some customers of theirs move over to us and we've also won contracts against them, but I suspect that's due to their rather steep pricing as opposed to anything else.

If I wasn't in this business myself and was considering a company for hosting my business site they'd certainly be on my shortlist.

Its a pain in the ass to say the least.

The 1960s and 1970s are the sole contributors to most of the pains in my ass!

They often built them, just for good measure, so that it was on an option to demolish them ebcause they may damage the surrounding buildings.

I really enjoy it, it's a job that I don't necessarily consider "work" since I like what I do. The thing that sometimes is a burden is that I don't get much of an actual fixed rate salary, it's mainly made up of the percentage of the selling price of the house. The usual percentage taken out of the selling price is 6% and my commission is 2%-2.5% (2.5%+3.5%=6%). If you want tips, here's a few:

1) Find your niche. Make sure you know your market and the variety of people that particular market appeals to.
2) Location is the key. If you have a not-so-nice home in an exclusive area, it will sell much faster than a large, spacious home in a low-down neighborhood (you can change a home, not a location).
3) Enjoy your work. This is something you must do to be successful, don't take anything too seriously.

i got no clue ....but i bet sandy has an idea ....me as a "lot porter" was shortlived , i think i did the porter thing for about a week , then they found out how good i was about "making problems go away"...so they hired another porter to free me up to as they say "do what you do"....story of my life .....ill get hird at a job and do that for about a week , things always evolve into the monster and i become THE "go to guy"...i enjoy it , really i do becuse i get alot of respect , but at the same time im very easily forgotten becuse i need no supervision and rarely need to talk to any of my bosses outside them getting me and handing me a problem ...I go days without phisicly seeing my bosses , everything that is handled by me comes via the nextel .....

This refers to the early years of Tony Danza. Before Who's the Boss, Danza's porn name was Tony Nadz. His signature more was the danza slap where he smacked the girl across the face after receiving oral sex and would call out "Danza". He was known to leave welts.
After that hummer, I slapped her across the face with my wang and hollered "Danza!" She was impressed.

I'm a realtor/investor. Not doing to good as a realtor lately but damn if my investments didn't pay off!. I pretty much look for more investments to add to the portfolio since I sold most of what I had less two apartment buildings that keep money coming in from rents. :cool:

Funny, thats exactly what I thought. Truth is, in my county alone we have 9000 realtors. Seems that because of this boom, everyone and their mother became realtors. :banghead: To put things in perspective, in my subdivision of 183 units, I know of 13 realtors that live here. I got real lucky in that I got into some good investing early and midway through this boom but I believe the prices have topped out and will start going down. At that time I plan to get more rental units vs. flipping properties.

I am a flight dispatcher for United Airlines (no not an air traffic controler). 39 years at UAL. We like to say "we provide adult supervision for pilots" or "dispatchers tell pilots where to go". :histeric: We are licenced by the FAA. We work up a flight plan, pick the route, calculate the fuel required, calculate the allowable takeoff weight, pick the alternate (if needed), then issue and sign a legal release that the captain also signs making us jointly responsible for the saftey of the flight. We are also responsible for ok'ing or refusing any saftey related items that maintainence wants to defer. We then monitor the progress of the flight from start to finish and advise tha captain of any changes (thunderstorms building along his route, turbulence, weather deteriorating at destination, braking action on snowy/icy runways). I can have as many as a dozen or two in the air at any given time. We are also the first point of contact for enroute problems (hydraulic failures, engins shut downs, generator failures, obnoxious drunks, heart attacks (once had the captain having a heart attack), etc, etc. We are basically part pilot, part navigator, part mechanic, part meteorologist and part mind reader. I have to fly in the cockpit once a year to maintain my qualification and have even been trained in the use of a Tazer (who'd of ever thought).

I work at a TV station as a Master Control Tech. Responsible for the transmission of the over the air TV signal. I also play the dreaded commericals that so many people tune out when they come on. What it boils down to is I get paid to watch bad TV.

My dad retired last year from the former CBS network station KMOX (sold, now affiliate KMOV) in St. Louis for 35 years. He did nearly everything from Master Control to working out at the transmitter to Tech Director to about everything in ENG to eventually out on the street with a camera to be a photo journalist, which got him 3 Emmy's and just recently inducted into the Emmy Silver Circle.

I always loved getting tours of the station, it changed so much everytime I would get to go there, they loved to rearrange things. I remember the old 2in reel to reel video tape machines (now 1 in), even the air operated commercial video machines (now a computer).

Cool to find someone else in the business! The technology in that business changes so much so fast it is cool to see.

Chemical Specialist for the last 9 years. I run distillations and reactions for a chemical company that supplies the flavor and fragrance industry. Our products make things smell and taste good. Very interesting. Not interested in running powerhouse boilers anymore. Did that in the Navy and then for a few years after I got out.

I deal with communication Medical & Non Medical. Its called HIM(Health Information Management) but I could save a life if possible, but because I'm bored I need to persue my automotive mechanical dreams so you guys (like you did to Bbob) can debate with me about my automotive future technical enhancements about my aluminum engine.
