Just out of curiosity, if anyone would like to share, what do you do IRL?

I'm intrigued to see what kind of diverse playerbase EU attracts.

I'm the head Programmer/Developer at a small town Web Development company. I mainly specialize in PHP/MYSQL and Custom WordPress development (even though I hate WP). We also do graphic design and video production, which is what I initially went to school for. I'm also starting to dabble in desktop application/game programming xD.

I've noticed that a lot of friends I have made in EU are in a similar field, perhaps something about it attracts us nerds ;). How about you?

Lots of IT here I see.

I've been in IT for 30+ years. I run my own software consulting company to help companies develop new Windows desktop and Web application in .NET, C# and SQL Server and to take these products to market. I'm a certified MSDBA and MCSE. I also provide business and IT planning for companies. One of my specialties is performance analysis and I have helped many large corporations isolate, identify and resolve performance bottlenecks. I also give public lectures on the topic and am a published author.

Unfortunately I don't have much time to play EU these days, but I still enjoy the game when I do get to play.

12 weeks a year I get to point a finger at aspiring and ambitious 20-40 year olds, most of which get fired. :D

hmmm, my usual duties include

Digital print tech - artwork processing, Zebra ID card printer tech support, .net programmer - embedded and desktop, desktop support, network support and phone engineer. And some mechanical support.

Probably got some more but forgotten them.

edit. I knew I'd forget something - SQL database wrangler and data processor.

And that was just this week.

Make your own mind up about which of those is most interesting, significant or lucrative, depending on your priorities.
