I write software for REAL computers, not these modern toy ones. Anyone old enough to remember COBOL? I am a fundi at it.
I also qualified as a tourist guide for the Wastern Cape and I do it as a very pleaseant part time distraction.
I am a fanatical Machester United fan and I try my best to support the Stormers, Proteas, and Western Privince although they often make it very difficult.
My name hints at other interests.

Hello all,

I work in the medical industry, despite having studied banking.
My father has retired out near Malelane, so I have an ideal base from whihc to enter the southern part of the park. I try to go at least 2 or 3 times a year - even managed 12 times in 1 year while studying

Hi there!!

Thought I would add my occupation, although I have already mentioned it somewhere...

Have been working for different airlines for the last 20 years. Most recent airline is Air France (used to work for Pan American, lufthansa in Germany and "Air Liberté")

In France, we lazy people only work 35 hours a week. I have to get up at 3:30am sometimes and get home, on other days at 01:00am. But this gives me three day weekends and cheaper tickets to come to Kruger....

Hi

My son and I have a scaffold business. We hire scaffold out to small to medium business. Also build scaffold towers for larger building contractors.

Spent most of my time with admin. Very boring. I love to design scaffold structures and then build it. We are also qualified scaffold inspectors.

Best part of the job, you are always outside in the sun.

I love going to Kruger. Have been visiting Kruger on a regular basis for the last 41 years. Even spend my honeymoon there.
My wife is a bigger Kruger fanatic than what I'm.

Studied electronic engineering .

Am now in the field of industrial electronics .

Work on industrial automated warehousing machinery .
Design and modify regular condition machines to work inside harsh operating environments .
Maintain these machines , and repair electronic controllers for them , this is where I get my forum time from , while I wait for data sheets on components etc to download , or for electronic test circuits to run .
Its far more fun than just watching the controller getting tested and to see if it will turn into smoke or not

The best part of my job is when I have to go and sort out problems on machines in places like Nelspruit , or Louis trichardt , and get to take the knp 2 night shortcut home

Retired civil servant but unlike DuQues I had to work. 36 years with the U.S. government, the last 20 as a Regional Administrator for Administration and Management with the U.S. Department of Labor covering a 10 state region. For a mind-numbing description of what this entailed see: mind-numbing description

But that is past. I now spend my days either traveling the world, planning our future travels, or reviewing past travels with my lovely wife of 40 years, Diane, and along the way even manage to take a few photos.

It is a great time of life, and we are enjoying it to the utmost.

I'm an IT manager, working for a tertiary institution. My section is responsible for the university's servers, network and so on. I enjoy my job, but it can get rather stressful at times. Computers are bad enough, but the people problems are what really make me tear my hair out.

I fear my job description is at least as mind-numbing than TXDrifter's, plus it is runs to ten pages, so I'll spare you!

I am also the mother of a bright and beautiful three-year-old, and he keeps me and my SO pretty busy when we're not at work.

Legislative attorney. It's a good job and I feel lucky to have it. Just wish it weren't so far away from South Africa.

I am mostly a business consultant and a tour broker.

Because there are pocket money to be made, I do bridging finance for people.

To keep in touch with the latest developments at the academical front, I am a part time lecturer at the technicological university of the Free State, teaching Marketing & Marketing research.
