Computer engineer here Cheesy
I can make you a nice processor unit. 32 bits? 64 bits? Maybe 16? No problem

So we are talking about hardware?
Please clarify the best you can.


Well it's also an engineering, maybe you want to host a big server in your new house?

Maybe we would want such a thing on our project!
But still I am unclear exactly what you do, this is probably my fault. But if you wouldn't mind elaborating or sharing with us the scope of one of your projects, I could better understand what the trade you are in is and specifically what your function is.


Well I basically develop simple built in microprocessors.

I am currently working in the lumberyard at a building supply store while I get my degree. I have also worked in a custom welding shop, in demolitions, and in farm/equine work. About to start a second job laying basketball courts around the state.

Cool, I will put you in the demo section as the first demo guy and list your other attributes. Does this mean you can act as a supplier of lumber in ways? Do you get a discount?

I do get an employee discount, but I am not supposed to use it for those outside my household or family and I will honor that. Also, I have driven a forklift daily at my current job and the two before it.

edit: i also have a fair amount of experience with masonry and concrete, all through volunteer work.

I worked for a General Contractor for 5 years as their Estimator/Project manager. Everything from residential (whole house) to commercial and government stuff.  It was ton's of fun, as I started literally on the bottom (part-time general labor), so I got to scrub walls after cement pours, stack and clean forms, etc.  Eventually I was lucky enough to participate in just about everything, from concrete, to welding, to carpentry, to standing steel, rough framing, finishes, drywall, electrical, plumbing, all of it.  When I moved up into the office, I also got to work with the plans, and since i'd already had experience with CAD/CAM stuff, got to build most of the projects we had in 3D.  Made estimation simple, and also brought to light a number of issues that could have posed problems when we were in the field.  Overall, it was a total riot.

Got out of it three years ago, ended up going back to web-design for a bit, and now I'm just loafing around unemployed. Cheesy

Excellent, where abouts were you located?
For the record I am currently a project manager / estimator too. And it is a pretty awesome job.

I used to be a drywall contractor. The list of projects include, but not limited to:

....
~Bruno~

Dually noted. Drywall is a vital part of most projects and virtually all homes. Very Valuable Trades... Keep em coming and you will see where I am going soon.

You would think that the world's largest residential log cabin (Fontanel Mansion) wouldn't have much drywall in it, but if fact it took 550 4'X12' (5/8" thick) sheets of drywall. The tricky part was making sure that my installers place the top sheet of any exterior walls a certain distance from the ceiling line, for there were 100's of these tiny jacks holding up the roof (though fastened to the walls) that had to all be turned 1/4 of a turn every (don't remember the time frame). This was to allow all that weight to settle evenly. If any drywall was off, there would be a gap or the walls would buckle and/or crack.

~Bruno~

Edit: In conjunction with drywall installation, I also contracted insulation installation, metal stud framing, installing commercial windows and doors, acoustic ceiling installation, wallpapering, cove base, synthetic stucco application (Stucco Flexr), and painting. All based out of Nashville, TN, and Houston, TX.

I've been doing general carpentry (drywall, painting, roofing, decks, windows, etc.) for the last 2 years for my uncle's company in Upstate NY. I've also operated forklifts, scissor lifts, electric pallet jacks, and boom lifts throughout my life.

I'm a mechanical engineer. My skills include 3D scanning & printing, reverse engineering, finite element analysis, tool & die design, computer programming, and process control. After college I spent 5 years designing jet engine service/assembly tools, and now design for a forge that makes giant metal rings.

Don't you have a dog to eat?

I have also supervised construction of record keeping systems shown below, but larger. I oversaw a couple projects for Iron Mountain in the Chicagoland area.

What I would give to get 'in' with jet engines.. *jizz*

I've made a self sustaining jet turbine out of steel pipe and tin cans LOL.

Too bad it melted.  Bring on the tungsten ;P

Okay... ya got me... in my former professional life I was an Architect. Had two offices in the Midwest, and 16 really good people working for me. The portfolio was full of bottom feeder retail projects, if you have ever eaten in a Quiznos, had your hair cut at Fantastic Sams or Great Clips, had your significant other buy shoes at 5-7-9, purchased flannel at Eddie Bauer, gotten tech support through a NOC with Charter Communications, or stored your special munitions at Fort Lewis or Fort Ord, you have seen my work.

Unfortunately, one of those customers didn't pay for a whole lot of work done over the course of a year, and put us under with just about $ 750,000 in write-offs due to crooked Texas contract law, dishonest area developers, warped incestuous corporate ownership, gullible Third World franchisees, and a client who had a $25,000 per week cocaine and hooker habit. I won't embarass them by saying which one, I'll just hope that they choke on their next "Mmm, Toasty" sandwich.

I urge anyone considering entering into any sort of business arrangement with WiseOldOwl to read the entirety of this thread - https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=18197.0

I would recommend others steer well clear of WiseOldOwl until he either justifies what was done with the funds invested in that project and/or repays the investors.

Not to be trusted.
