I am a network administrator/computer tech support for a paper manufacturer. I maintain the computers/servers for 2 plants in Arkansas. I have about 200 computers/servers so it keeps me pretty busy, but I do find time to post on these forums when I am not too busy.
Been doing this for the past 9 years and I'm over it. Not so much because of the animals, but because of pet owners. You really get a feel for how stupid and stingy people are when it comes to taking care of their pets, and it wears down on your morale. Initially, I'd gotten into this field via working with rescued wild and exotics (wolfdogs, wolves, tigers, bears) but honestly, the unpaid volunteer work was more rewarding. Speaking of that, the pay SUCKS. Vet techs don't get paid shet, despite the fact we're:
Equipment repair techs, all in a one day, pretty much every day.
Yeah, people in human medicine get paid waaaaay more, and for only having to do one or two of the above. It's ridiculous. Next step for me is Computer Sciences, Arabic, but preferably Persian if I can find it, and possibly pharmacy tech classes. If I'm going to be busting my a$$ all day long, I want to be makin' BANK for it.
