Thread: what does everyone do for a living?

  1. #1

    what does everyone do for a living?

    As the title says, what does everyone do for a living?

    I'll start it off,

    I work for an aerospace firm called cav aerospace in a place called consett not far from Newcastle upon Tyne, I set up long beds (upto 80 ft long) for cnc milling machines that mill the insides of plane wings. It can be a pretty boring job sometimes but its permenant and it pays the bills better than most places round here. 😊

    Best of luck with your interview, let's hope they dont spot the fact that you're an ASS...

    I'm fully aware of what it is, care to share anything else?

    I assume I'm getting banned for this....

    Trying to get an international commissioning job but still looking for vacancies

    Kevgib sorry if I offended you & no you won't get banned for that
    I have been looking at building an optical interface but due to the ic's being rebranded modifying existing devices isn't as easy as i had hoped and I haven't got time to design and build from scratch

    Re: what does everyone do for a living?

    I'm retired armed forces, full career man. Did nothing for a couple of years when I came out just to chill and settle back into normal life. I'm now a courier, sorry! a genuine white van man for local government and I love it. Keeps me busy and gives me some pocket money.

    I meant to add a smiley as was meant to be a bit tongue and cheek......

    I'll have a new look at the interface for testing the optics, so far the issue I've had is I was using an 80/20 power fibre tap that caused the AMP1 to stop working, so was looking at electical optical interface but crashed the car soon after.... Have an EHU and ICM set in garage and I'll return to this some day// as I have a garage full of other gear - Multimode SFP+ Fibre Channel capable. Got as far as reading frame headers and some APIs, but alas I have an '08 now so no more pen-top loops keeping things going.. Need to make my fortune elsewhere..
