Never going to be the next Richard Branson are we? :D

Listen up, when folks offer you cash - take it. Believe me, they'll actually feel better and you could at least then buy a much nicer toolkit, to suggest just one idea.

Think about it :)

I am an IT Recruiter (some folks call us Headhunters or even something fancy like Executive Search Consultant). Ehh, I am just a recruiter who recruits software developers, software architects, etc, for Software Development companies across the USA.

And yes, you *have* to have a PC to do this. ;-)

Both - my work is in business credit related to financing Dell systems (which means we have to know ALL about the hardware we finance).

I went to college for comp sci/mathematics so I always planned on working with computers, but now the actual technical stuff has become my hobby.

Hobby . It was either pc's or soaps . Both guaranteed to mess with your brain I know but pc builder sounded more glamorous than soap addict .

computers started as a hobby to me playing games in the ZX Spectrum days, then me been me I liked taking things apart, hardware and software, so some studying was needed which intern lead to teaching computers, and onto what I am doing now
