    Also in IT and not liking it any more. The hours suck. Weekends are never your own!!!
    Bill gates should have been shot at birth.

    Also run a company on the side to sponsor my other hobby. Not making any money but at least is helping the hobby. Also helps with sneeking new toys into the home. :yes

    I would not say I am your boss Alwyn :) co worker would be a better description.

    I've been a C++/Java and Oracle monkey for about 7 years now.

    Geez, funny how the grass is always greener...
    I used to be in IT (worked with Ivan), now I am in car rental (sales), and I would go back to IT at the drop of a hat. I also used to think that IT sucks and that anything else would be better.... :(

    I still think we Cape Town okes should all pull together and start our own mega-super fish/aquarium/water plant warehouse and show the LFS's a clean set of heels...

    Surprise sunrise, I'm in IT too, but more on the creative side of things. I'm a web developer / designers, so i can design and code a site from scratch and also make it do funky things. Currently working for 24.com and I love it - really laid back atmosphere but lotsa hard work. I guess keeping fish is kinda a geek hobby LOL
