The Friday Five is Back and Working!

1. What do you do for a living? I operate a computer that processes astronomical data. That's the short answer. The long answer is boring and technical.

2. What do you like most about your job? It's pretty cushy. A lot of the time, all I have to do is keep an eye on the data quality and make sure everything's going OK. Which means I can surf the net or whatever.

3. What do you like least about your job? Morning shifts. Two weeks out of every six, I gotta be in to work at 7:45. My brain doesn't even begin to think about starting to function until at least 9:00. Often 10:00.

4. When you have a bad day at work it's usually because _____... Things aren't working right. Jobs that should run smoothly have to be interrupted multiple times to troubleshoot problems. Magnetic tape snaps and has to be spliced. Hardware breaks. That sort of thing.

5. What other career(s) are you interested in? I want to get paid for staying home and sitting on my butt. You know of any openings in that field?
