Ex construction, ex carpenter, ex joiner. No job at moment can't do physical work anymore and at mid 40's really hard to find anyone prepared to take on somebody without any experience in any other type of industry.

Not complaining I'm still better off than a lot of people, just wish I could find something

Thought of inspection work in cchurch? I'd have thought they'd be screaming out for those skills. I know a few who work down there, fly in fly out (so to speak)

Student, aspiring pilot and photographer/designer.

Maintaining an IT interest, since it's namely a "help" forum i'm not surprised a few of our old faithful regulars are the real geniuses that hold up the 99% of us with our PC problems

I work on the Canon Helpdesk, but do IT on the side for personal and for family and friends.

No matter what occupation you are in there is a reliance on computers. Most of us are computer operators who tap away at the keyboard and when things go wrong we need to go somewhere for help. Most of us have a basic knowledge of what to do to remedy problems ourselves some of the time. Other times we need to consult with our peers, read books, find the solution on the internet or if all else fails take your computer to a technical person for them to fix.

This forum is good because you can share your computer problems and find a fix. :2cents:

I'm about identical to Gary ... without the building quals ... cabinetmaker/joiner with stuffed right hand and back. Still do a little in the workshop but some of the meds I'm on don't mix well with machinery that can take your hand off. Was making high end solid timber kitchens and one off furniture pieces until I had an "Oh F***" moment which ended that career path.

Always liked fiddling around with computers and recently did a polytech course to learn a bit more about software ... not much of it stuck unfortunately ... :lol:

Do a bit of repair work for friends & neighbours when their computers crash ...

One thing I will say ... This forum has saved my ar$e more than once and I am eternally grateful for the assistance of those who have pointed me in the right direction ... Wainui & Speedy automatically come to mind ... Thanks guys !!

We had a difference of opinion on what constitutes a safe site, And when the stakes are peoples lives that can be quite important.

I also took exception to being called a racist, a liar, and an accusation of taking money from the principal to "get them".

All in all, quite mad really.

I got out before I ended up in a hearing saying, Yeah, I could see that coming and thought at the time I should quit......

That sucks, big companies only interested in cutting costs. If they have an OSH incident and get fines the insurance company pays.

You can't insure against fines, Nor was it about cutting costs, It had more to do with effective leadership.

You can vote for multiple options. E.g. an IT teacher + part time network administrator at the same school = Education + IT
