What is your job?

How do you afford your Rock N Roll lifestyle?

I own my own company. Most big named buildings downtown are my accounts.

Pharmacy Technician. I don't live a rock and roll lifestyle. LOL

I saved enough money to buy a Boxster from selling a few games from my pinball machine collection.. Down to about 6 now, about to pick up another soon.

Hot water is from 12lbs to 80 lbs depending on how high the building is (how high I need to lift the water)

Boilers'r'us? I live in the clean side of your world. I work for a consulting firm doing 3rd party commissioning of new building HVAC systems. Mostly green stuff so I am much more likely to be seeing hydronic floors,heat pumps, geothermal filelds, solar walls, etc. than those old rads.

Information Systems & Database Administrator/Programmer.
Also did some Civil Engineering, construction design etc since thats what I went to school for, but transitioned and reschooled in the late 80's to jump into the emerging computer fields, which is way more interesting.
