VLSI design was always my favourite subject on my degree course, so I'm quite envious!

My years of electronics related studying have naturally led me (via several years as an automotive engineer for a certain well know Essex based car company) to a job as a database analyst for a London university. Obviously... :?

Do you get days when you get that sinking feeling? :roll: :)

Ahem, I am an unemployable, single parent with no skills whatsover except fathering children (currently 8) and I get £35,000 p.a. in state benefits including a paid-for package holiday (which is a basic right anyone has to claim in my difficult circumstances) from you taxpayers, for simply breathing. :shock:

Oh, and I do a bit of designwork, technical authoring and woodwork on the side. :wink:

I design and make plugs from which glassfibre vivariums are manfactured. It's brilliant because it gives me all the excuses I need to spend as much time in my workshop as I want. And as the business grows it'll mean more money to spend on TOOLS!!!

Regards, John

I'm a software engineer, working in the Space (i.e. satellites, ground control segments, satcoms etc.) and Defence areas.

Mostly working in the UK, but in the past have travelled abit, primarily in Europe in support of space work. My most exotic work location was a 6 week stint in French Giana (near Brazil - up and to the right abit), installing & testing a range safety system for Ariane satellite launchers.

I make kitchens, sometimes just doors and drawer fronts, sometimes the whole thing. I work in birch ply and ash-veneered MDF. It's woodwork, Jim, but not as most of those on this forum know it. Making doors isn't as much fun as one would think when one has a pile of 50 styles and 50 rails to work through. Still, it's better than working for a living.
