Work - hmm, this is a tough one to talk about. I am what is called a Sales Engineer, while I make decent money I don't nearly meet the mid to high range figures on that website, but it is a great description of the job. I am also third level support for the company I work at and an Enterprise Project Manager. What does that mean? Well unlike what my wife says when people ask what I do, the answer is not 'he works with computers'. =-)

Say you are a North American gold mining company, a major Travel Agency or a National employment sourcing company as examples(no names on a public blog) and you need to have a company host your web, mail, shared data, product/people databases in a secure Data Centre as well as manage your IT security and access to these devices you would come to my company. The sales rep would introduce me and I would work with the company to discover their needs and come up with a solution. This generally takes into account:
-Firewall needs
-Remote access…
Should start actually blogging regularly since I am a techno Geek....Funny thing is I do blog, but it is on my groups blog The Geek Nighter Weblog read it if you dare, we have 7 years of archives and you will see everything from movie deets, game reviews, jokes, flames and everything under the sun.

On to other schtuff, my interests, this is my blog, so I will talk about me sometimes, other times other people or things.

-PS3, hmm, just bought one, LOVE it, but no games, thankfully I have a dozen PS2 games in the to be played or finished pile (FF12, RE4, Okami, Rogue Galaxy, Devil May Cry 3, Kingdom Hearts 2, etc...) and Oblivion is on it's way from a kindly ebay seller. What I love about my PS3? Blu-ray - ROCKS, Superman Returns is psycho on that thing, Super Stardust HD - Awesome, Upsampling of PS2, DVD's and audio is just icing on the cake. Aside from that pickins are slim on the PS3, this year I have Home, Heavenly Sword, UT3, Uncharted, Lair and Folklore to look forward to…
