Friday Five

| | Comments (0)

Well, I don't know where to start. I was going to bitch about FF's link icon not showing up properly last week, but then all of a sudden I go to put this week's in and the entire text just drops nicely into place, no cut and paste or anything.
I think it's just dumb luck, as I tend to randomly highlight sites as I read them, but I'll take it.
I've also just realized that the css changes I made to make Mozilla happy (why did I do that again?) are making IE 5.5 barf. Nothing like catering to the minority...
the friday five
1. Where do you currently work?
Northrop Grumman Information Technology
Good place for me, the pace suits my style, I get to do DoD oriented projects, and I have an office. What more can a man ask for?
2. How many other jobs have you had and where?
I'm not going to do the math and give a number, but here they are.

  • Ranch hand - working cattle for my parents, baling hay, etc.

  • Fireworks salesman - what's better than marketing a way to blow yourself up?

  • Line Operator, Inteplast - what's worse than making plastic produce bags? Doing it for 12 hours a day, that's what

  • Conner's Corner Cashier - yep, a convenience store. Best day was when a woman bought a Sunday paper in the newspaper machine outside (that we didn't own), demanded a refund (which I denied) because the paper didn't contain coupons , and then attempted to buy Fritos with said paper.

  • Stockroom flunky - Texas Union Microcenter. This job kicked ass. On campus, laid back, musician co-workers. If they'd stayed open I might still be there. Underpaid, of course, but mellow.

  • Tech Support, IBM Global Services - originated the phrase, "The customer always lies". They did, too.

  • Software Engineer, NGIT - see above and below

3. What do you like best about your job?
Everything in #1
4. What do you like least about your job?
Sometimes it feels too big, but most everything is contained within my office, so I'm sheltered from the majority of the politics & policies.
5. What is your dream job?
I've often thought something in photography, but there's little market for the kind of photography I want given that my name isn't Ansel Adams. I guess at this point my dream job is having enough (see: a ton) of money to tinker around with my hobbies and get proficient at them.
