    I was just wondering how many more of you out there are sitting in front of their computer, having thier soul sucked out by faintly flickering lights, while others prosper from torturing you in the most evil of mental prisons?

    well.....that was a happy thought wasn't it? :p

    Actually what I really was interested in finding out, was what kinds of things you guys do for a living if anything. And whether or not you enjoy your job?

    24x7 tech support call centre, schedule changes every 2 weeks, and I have a bad series of shifts coming up. Afternoons for 4 weeks, then graveyard/night shift for 2 weeks, then back to another 2 weeks of afternoons before getting an 11am start shift. Oh, and after 2 weeks of 11am, another 2 weeks of graveyard/night shift. After that's all done though, I think I have 2-3 months of day shifts starting between 8-10am. I just wish they would break it up more. The job's alright, but it's not a career choice. Gotta get out of the call centre and into a proper IT department somewhere...
    Anyone hiring in the GTA???
