I owned an Electronic Repair Shop for 10 years or so (fixed things like TV's, CB radios, etc but when TV's got so cheap that they were more or less Throw-a-ways, I needed to do something else and built houses for my brother for a while (carpenter & electrician) but that got pretty old, so I retired, at least for a while.
I am a product engineering manager for Triton Systems. We are the ones that make all of the ATMs you see in convience stores, malls, etc.. I mostly design metal components and such for the ATMs, but I have started to get a little more involved in the electronics of the machines. My degree is in electrical engineering, but I like working with metal and mechanical things a whole lot more. I have the added benifit of being able to use some cool tools from work to design my microcontroller cams
Dont post much just kinda lurk around and steal all the knowledge ya'll throw out. I do about the same as WVhunter. I am currently doing consultant work for small businesses. PC/Networking. Just recently got my MCSE certification. For those that don't know, MCSE is Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer. It sounds real big but the way Microsoft is doing the bigger businesses, I may be out of a job for long...

I work at a Kaolin Plant in Middle Georgia. It is more commonly known as a chalk mining operation. We just call it the "chalk mine". My Father was a "Chalk Miner" for 44 yrs. and I have been second generation for 15 yrs. I am a TREP operator. My part of the process is TiO2 (Titanium Dioxide) Removal and Extraction. This is done by adding a chemical to liquid chalk and heating it by friction in vats then pumping it into large cells that blow air up thru the liquid chalk and "float" the Tio2 off the top. By removing TiO2 from the chalk you make the chalk whiter or brighter as we like to say. The finished product is an additive to paper.... very good printer paper that is .
