I'm a technical director in a company that manufactures safety and interior doors. Started as a salesman in this company 14 years ago.


At least that's my cover. Angel

RE: What Do You Do/Did For A Living?
Have not had a job yet but if I may post what I am trying to get. I am trying to get into custodial work at my local movie theater. Both my grandmother and father did the same thing. Work from night to early morning when the theaters are closed so no worrying about dealing with customers and free movie tickets for being an employee.

I work in production hall. Nothing much to like about the job but it pays well enough for me to live a comfortable life. Also it's only 6 months in a year so that's another plus.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

Our middle child is special needs. His diagnosis includes autism.

Keeps things interesting.

Indeed it does! I hope your son is doing well.

RE: What Do You Do/Did For A Living?
Started working in the field of biomedical engineering in the 90s

1) Adaptive electronic bladder stimulator for patients with spinal chord injury.
I hereby confess to have witnessed the death of quite some cute puppy beagle dogs. May i burn in (engineering) hell. Blush
My excuse: they didnt suffer at all, were anesthetized, filled up with opioids and never woke up again.

2) Receiver of an OCT (Optical coherence tomography) imaging system.

Then switched to automotive:
3) Making safety analyses for anti-lock brake system ECUs (Electronic Control Unit).

4)
a) Drawing ECU schematics based on which the ECUs were mass produced.
b) Supporting application engineers in putting together ECUs out of a huge catalogue of circuit modules. Checking for compatibility of modules. Providing cross-application and cross-system circuit management.

5) Project manager/engineer for R&D ECUs not intended to be sold to customers but exclusively for internal testing of new architectures/functionalities.

I'm a publisher of a national magazine. But in the past, I've been a sports writer, editor, newspaper designer, waiter, short-order cook, bowling lanes mechanic, desk clerk and construction worker.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.
