Currently approaching 4 years with Apple, I am a Senior Technical Advisor with the AppleCare Mac+ division and a Team Manager Apprentice. What that really means is that if you call into Apple and have either a really hard technical question or you are a disgusting piece of worthless sh!t that calls itself "human" you get to me and I am the top of the food chain for people customers can speak to at Apple. When I am not taking calls (ugh :sick: ) then I sometimes get lucky enough to backfill for Managers and manage their teams while they are out for several days to several weeks and develop their team and work as a Manager. If I am lucky in the next 6-12 months I will be promoted and have my own team and not have to take any phone calls again, WOOT!

I'm a self employed motorcycle courier in a small town in rural Georgia. I ride to work, and I ride to play... I don't get much work though. It's not that I'm not good at it, it's mostly that I started doing work for people in the neighborhood and word spread from there by word of mouth. I typically make JUST enough to cover my monthly expenses and it's VERY meager.
KZs I own
1982 KZ750-H3 LTD (frame's bent, no longer rideable, RIP)
1982 KZ1100 LTD Shaft (thought it was a Spectre)
1988 KZ1000 Police
1989 KZ1000 Police (basket case)
2002 KZ1000 Police

Non-KZs:
1983 Hondamatic 450
2001 Honda Rebel

I am the Network guy for Kentucky State University, and I am adjunct faculty in Computer Science at the same University. I will complete my Doctorate this month, and hope to move to full time faculty, the first of next year.

Thanks, Cwise

Haha! I loathed titles, refused to have one for many years at my first business, would not let anyone else have one either. When I finally gave in, the first title I used on a business card was "Head Cheese". I enjoyed the double entendre too, along with those that recognized it :-).

Current card says "Chief RestoCycler". And my last official act yesterday before closing up the shop was on my knees cleaning the floor around the vapor blaster and taking out the trash. The paparazzi were waiting for me outside.
