Wow Mike that's some crazy good work history there! It sounds like you followed your passions; good for you!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Thanks. But even liking your job still doesn't make getting up at 4:00 AM everyday any easier. How does a 9 to 5 job turn into 5:00AM to 5:30PM? :)

Sparky & Abe wanna know, is your Zoo Med Betta Bed Hammock safe?

Oh I hear ya on that one. I have a 4.5 hour total commute on the days when I have to be in the office (Tue-Thurs). But not for long since our jobs are going to India. I've been training them since August

Am actually excited about this since it gives me the opportunity to make a change. And by change I mean I'll never work in Finance again!

Executive Chef in a restaurant doing stupid long hours.

12-14 hour+ days are not uncommon and if you ask my fellow mods has taken a major toll on me being active on here more.

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Chemist. I work for a contract lab and basically test anything and everything for US/EU/Japan guidelines. I mostly tests raw products a lot of which are the inactive ingredients it many drugs and some active drugs. It is interesting work, minus some really crappy tests and occasionally/frequently working with really hazardous materials. I like regular concentrated acids, don't like deadly drugs, deadly acids, or deadly gases. I love my coworkers and 10 minute commute, but pay could always be better.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

Datacenter Manager. Manage operations for the company I at work in their Miami datacenter branch, basically consists of building and installing new equipment, cabinets, switches/routers, and ensuring proper operating requirements are met (power/cooling). Parking is annoying and has to be paid for daily (or monthly) which is quite a bit in downtown Miami, but you take the bad with the good I suppose.

75G FW Community planted
65G FW Mbuna tank
50G FW Mixed Cichlid
33G Reef Tank
