Have to say i'm jealous of that one. Have you done any of their competitions there?

My local defcon group tried to do the hash cracking comp, but had issues with the app we came up with to control the servers that were going to be running hashcat etc.

 

The crash and compile seems like it would be fun :)

Thanks to everyone for their service. I was supposed to go into the Army as an MP when I turned 18, but I got caught up in something I shouldn't have.

 

I'd like to go to school for something IT related. For now, I'm a portable sanitation engineer :oP

Agg / Heavy Equipment Operator here. Here's a few pics from this past season. Operator of the combine is lucky to be alive! No the operator was not me either. It was the most experienced guy on the crew. 

So how automated are those things? Do they drive themselves?

It all depends on the operation. The vast majority of seeding is highly automated. GPS steering really helps the crop input evenly highly important for a good crop overlap of seeds and fertilizer can have big repercussions. Harvest and field work are less dependant on auto steer. It mostly depends on the owner even though it will pay for itself in fuel and economy savings IE always taking 100% of the header. In terms of just sitting around though there is usually always something you have to be watching and adjusting. Harvest. IE crop conditions if crop is laying down you need to adjust the reel and header height. Seeding is the most relaxing out of all of it though because you are going slow and its usually GPS. Spraying is the worst because you are going very fast and you have to constantly be adjusting a 100 ft boom and if you hit the ground the 250k machine is down.

I'm the lead architect in the data services department of my company.  I deal with about 4-5 national clients at a time mostly with big data and analytics.  Interesting stuff, but I shake my head sometimes about how much data we can amass about customers.

I'm a assistant equipment technician at a golf course.

 

I do all kinds of things from repairing and sharpening mowers/equipment all the way to using them. The reason I decided to get into the golf industry is that I'm outside everyday and it's an active job. It's also fun to figure out how things work when they break.

 

The winter hours are very easy usually 7am to 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Summer  is when all the fun starts. I could start work from anywhere from 6 or 7 in the morning and not leave until 5 or 6 in the afternoon. Summers are great for some big money. May not be as interesting as other jobs but I wake up every day and enjoy it.

I'm a 25 year IT infrastructure support manager. 

 

On the topic of 'occupations', I've found that online gaming can sometimes provide good training and insight into managing teams of people.  A few years ago, I found a research paper from Gartner that supported this idea.  Here's some excerpts from the Gartner paper:

 

Overview

CIOs striving to "reimagine" IT suffer from a critical skills gap and tend to overuse contractors and consultants to supplement leadership and interpersonal skills. This strategy will not be sufficient for the engaged IT department, as the skills that are most needed — leadership and collaboration — are not externally "sourceable." Most CIOs fail to realize that staffers are honing many of these badly needed skills as they participate in multiplayer online games. Those CIOs that recognize the talents that lay right beneath their noses — and take specific steps to cultivate them — will realize a new generation of IT business leaders much more skilled than those that have come before.

 

 

Successful players of online multiplayer games, such as World of Warcraft and the Battlefield series, have developed many of these skills, including:

 

  • Leadership.

  • Situational awareness.

  • Collaborative problem solving.

  • Dynamic engagement.

  • Practical goal orientation.

 

So, is it time to add "video game guild/outfit leader" to your resume?  Personally, as a hiring manager, I'd take notice.  Of course, I would ask for some references.  Or better yet, I might need to observe you in-game.  ;-)
