I am a CAD (that's Computer Aided Drafting) Manager for a Civil Engineering firm here in York, I live 1.3 miles away from work but we are going to be moving in 2 years so my commute will increase to 10.6 miles.
One reason why I picked up the Burgman. Another reason is because I had a 'lil 50cc scoot and had the need for speed! My wife calls it my 'Mid life crisis toy'. But then again she can't wait until I pass my MSP so she can ride shotgun!
Separated Navy AQ1 after 8 years (in for a dime in for a dollar... :shock: ). Got out after my second hitch in 88...
Now a Web Content Developer. I use input (power point files) from all "subject matter experts" to re-develop, narrate, test for compliance, and post (after using mostly text pad and adobe dreamweaver etc) the content to our learning management system (ADL CoLab standards) - which someone else (basically) birddogs the under-pinnings of (Oracle etc.).
I am NOT an IP/connectivity/server prsn. Been at it for 20+ years - yawn...military contractor since 1988. Starting to look old around all of these hip young ppl I am so used to hangin' around!

Technical Writer for an aerospace company. I started there about 29 years ago as a drafter. Did some design. Oversaw our first CAD system integration (IBM 5080 running CADAM back in '85). I have my original drafting board in my basement workshop 8) .
I transitioned into my current position about 10 years ago. I write our component maintenance manuals and maintain several customer based publications including a parts catalog. I use Adobe and Microsoft products (InDesign, Word, and learning FrameMaker). I also interface with several solid modeling programs.
The best part is nobody bothers me. I just do my thing all day long.
As you can tell I really like my work. I enjoy learning and working with all the software programs we have.

I'm a rural mail carrier for the USPS and owner of the MR Magic Fun Stuff magic shop, and that means I am also a part time magician. Plans are to retire from the post office in 3 years and pursue another line of work. I do the magic stuff for fun, although it pays pretty well.

250000 people are coming together for 10 days in the middle of a pandemic in a state with rising new cases. No masks, no social distancing.
And people ask "why the country with the most resources to deal with this has the highest death count?".
