I have designed a few websites
I am slowly learning linux
I like trying to hack into other peoples comps at lan parties and freak them out :blink:
And I am an assistant to the admin of a fairly large network.
I have been learning java for two years, and I want to learn c++

My other hobbies are counter strike, soccer, and rock climbing.

So for work, I am a PC Services Consultant. I do a little of everything from minor programming (SQL, VB, JCL, DYLAKOR, WIL, with dabbling in C, C++, C#, and Java). I also create reports using MS Access, Crystal Reports, Monarch, DB2, and more. For fun, I play guitar for my church, recently married, reading code snippets, browsing computer tech forums, reading Tom Clancy books for the hundredth time, and more. Of course, I only have two days a week that I can do anything since I am also a full-time student going for a BS in IT/CIS.

I work for an outsourced IT company where manage several small to medium sized businesses. We do a lot in managed services and hosted solutions. I fortunately got out of the field and have a nice office now doing mostly remote work.

I'm a total Linux fanboy working in a Microsoft shop. I am really fascinated with the security side of things and spend most of my time outside (and some inside) of work learning anything and everything I can. I started working with several languages and am having trouble sticking to one. Get to start some CCNA training in a couple weeks which should be pretty interesting.

Got myself a crotch rocket which gets me away from my computer on the weekends!!

I hack into people's networks, and they pay me to do it. Also I teach security courses from time to time.

Hobbies: hacking into people's networks that don't pay me to do it (Just kidding!). Ok I guess I do hack into my own network all the time, I've got a CCIE level rack of network gear/firewalls/etc and an ESXi server running a bunch of victim hosts to hack into to test out new vulnerabilities and tools and to help create labs and examples for teaching.

I work for a Law Firm as a Desktop Support Analyst. I support around 160 users on my site - I am the sole IT person here. Gets busy. I'm about to study a Bachelor of GeoScience Part-time via Distance education (Not really IT related but eh!).

I'm a 20 year old college student, currently halfway through Bsc. Economics and Finance. All my life my parents don't support my hobby in computing. They believe computers are mainly for games and therefore a waste of time. I do play games sometimes, but still...

My hobbies are mainly computer-related stuff and security breaching ;). Other hobbies are mainly sports, I do swimming, tennis, badminton, soccer, ski, snowboard, etc. Would love to learn free-running and breakdance but being self-taught is kinda risky :P

I am a college student finishing up my last year, my degree is in information and telecommunications systems. I am just starting to look for a job in the IT industry, I will probably end up working in networking, maybe doing some thing security related if I am lucky.

My hobbies are video games, paintball, running, and learning as much about computers/networks/security as I can.

I don't work in IT anymore, did so for 21 years but the local economy put an end to that. Its more or less of a hobby now, most of the people I was once connected to are either retired to warmer climate, in nursing homes or are dead. So the computer is a big play toy now, and sometimes it has just been too hard to stay away.

The day before I have IT I ensure that I have downloaded over 100 Flash games, to help pass the time. But now it seems that all these games have somehow got passed all the way around the bloody school!! :D EPIC WIN!!
When in doubt pull the pin and run...

But yes other than playing on games I just come on GSO, it's not that hard to just do all the work at home, when after all they tell you exactly what you need to do to get an A*!! :D
