Icon13 What do you do for a living

Work work work.

Curious to see how you lot spend your waking hours, what you do and do you enjoy it... say it as it is.

Myself I work shifts at Land Rover in Solihull

Shifts are shit and the graft is hard but the money is good and the lads are great.

God bless the Green Oval

Re: What do you do for a living

Quality assurance senior change analyst for a cable telecommunications company.
It means I do two things:
1) regulate and process requests to do maintenace with interest in network and high profile client preservation (verizon, at&t, the oil pipeline system, etc...).
2) identify, design, develop, and deploy solutions to ineffecient methods employed in the management of the network's stability (which ranges from software solutions to procedural solutions, or sociopolitical business solutions).

Yes, I like it.
Even when it's frustrating (often), it's a great job.
I'm never bored, salary wages (my top-end is 90k and I'm a year in this department at 65k - which is good, but it's Alaska and we're single income, so we need another 5 to 10k to pull up from threading the needle), banker's hours, virtually free cable, phones, and internet, and alright insurance.

------------------
You, or anyone else, are free to do anything with the music that I make. I consider all of my productions to be public domain. If someone asks, I will give them the source files and any related sample files if they are needed. Music is a dialogue, not a speech. Any listener must be free to become the speaker at any time for the life of the dialogue to be retained. Let us, then, discuss in tone.

So you're saying 75k is a comfortable income for a household over there! what are the living costs like over there as that sounds like a fair chunk of change to me. Glad you enjoy your job btw

That sounds like an awesome job are you willing to divulge what titles you've worked on / released? As I've probably bought you a holiday or two
