Was a Lab Tech Specialist, Lab support tech, ESD coordinator, and tracked all batteries in all systems that IBM used or made throughout the company. Was forced to retirement after 33 years. Worked at a hobby store for a couple of years. Now I'm fully retired and spend most of my time changing names in Config files so they are easier to find items. This is a carry over from tracking batteries, (a database base is only as good as the consistency of the data input)
