    After reading Gales thread i thought that this would be a good idea, probably not though.

    My job was finding genes that caused a disease, now my job is finding markers which tell that there is a disease with all kinds of technologies. Besides that I went back to being a student :)

    Research in Biomedical Sciences is fun!

    Maintenance Technician for HP.

    I keep the tools that do wafer level processes for ink jet cartriges running. We are currently producing the pens for the latest generation of HP printers. If you have one of the new model HP printers, the heart of its pens went through one of my tools.

    Retired. Formerly data base administrator for a number of companies (FMC and Marshall Fields were a couple). One time grad student in math.

    Is there going to be a statistical run down on all this?

    15-year-old high-school student...gonna graduate soon, but haven't yet. As for part-time jobs...well, I've done lawn-mowing and stuff like that, but I'm currently helping a friend with some repair projects...we help repair stuff around people's houses like plumbing, door locks, paint - you know, the whole "handyman" deal :smile:.
