Cool post. Interesting to see so many different folks around here.

I'm a technical writer for a large software company. No, not that one. We make the graphics software so many of you pirate. Basically, I write instruction manuals and run a website for developers within the company. In a previous life I wrote for newspapers and a wire service.

I also scam free fishing trips in exchange for magazine stories at every opportunity.

Hey Jerry, I think I've taken a lot of your shop's scraps. Love to see the inside sometime.

Adobe fix? Heh, ask Sparkey about HIS Adobe "fix". Took him days to "fix" the mess leftover from his Adobe adventure. Of course between you and me (and the thousands reading this) it was likely a corruption in IE but I'll rag on Adobe just because they turned the feds on that hacker...er...crusader for the blind Dmitry Sklyarov.

Oh, and sorry dude. I'm chewing Big Red today. The GUM, people. Geez, rough crowd.

I had a bunch of money in 1980 so I thought I'd become a fishing guide.

Well, the moneys almost all gone now and I'm still guideing. Full time since 1981 and have had a great time just hoping to catch a fish or two.

Used to want to killem' all but now I just take pictures of them (wild ones) and letum' swim away.

Five kids and nine grandchildren, can't wait to retire, play with the kiddies and just go fishing with them. What could be better!!!!!
