I cook stuff. And also surf, play poker, drink a lot of beer and wine, and other things when I'm not feeling lazy.

In my day job, I'm the Web site manager for a medical school. Outside of work, I enjoy gardening (especially veggies and herbs), cooking, biking, kayaking, and photography. I also go out to dinner to a different restaurant each week with friends, and tonight, I'm starting a class at a local arts center on using photography and a fresh eye to create art.

Cool thread idea, LT

I'm a full-time student. Not working at the moment. For fun I hang out with friends watching movies, live in my online world of Final Fantasy XI, go for long drives when the weather is nice, and cook.

POTS (Plain Old Telephone Service....seriously, thatís what it stands for!) is old school these days, but we do still sell POTS units. We do lots of packet switched devices. My group's main focus lately is the back-hauling and grooming wireless networks.

Cell towers receive and transmit the RF signal and need to get and receive data back to/from the network for routing. We back-haul all of that data with T1 (copper), T3, optical links, and giga-bit Ethernet links. When I hired in, we were doing a lot of DDS stuff, but have since moved on to T1/T3 multiplexers, cross connect devices, etc, that can serve the wireless divisions.
