I used to spend a lot of time playing golf and drinking alcohol (sometimes simultaneously) but now minimal free time is shared unevenly between my family and rocksmith (and this forum because I'm joined to the internet at the hip)

I am an IT Guy as well. Implementing and managing our new VMWare and Citrix environment. Been doing this for 20+ years and I still love going to work every day. I also got to play Army for 21 years in the North Dakota and Minnesota National Guard (I didn't consider myself a "clueless" officer, but Steamroller52 may disagree ;)). Kidding aside, I am very proud to have served and I admire every member of the armed forces and their families for the sacrifices they make. Thank you!

I think the mathematics and organization of the fretboard as well as all the cool gadgets you can use with a guitar (amps, peddles, mods, etc) is what attracts the geeks to the guitar. Hence the high number if IT folks.

I also have a penchant for music based video games (am a Rock Band 3 completionist), I have had some formal instruction in piano, guitar, and play rock band with my TD9-kx2, so am a self taught hack of a drummer too.

Senior Unix Administrator. Been into computers since 1979 or so when I was a typesetter on a CompuGraphic Editwriter. I'm really a troubleshooter, identifying and resolving problems with systems. An important part of that is performance tuning to have efficient systems and documentation so we know what we have. I've done programming in the past and of course script as part of my work. But I have two fairly large apps I wrote to make my work easier and which is gradually (like a fungus) being used by other teams in the organization. The organization itself is the largest maintainer of 911 information in the US and probably Canada. If you call 911, your address is very likely being retrieved from our servers. We maintain the Amber Alert gateway and are a competitor to Reverse-911 (ours is called Advanced 911).

From this comment, and from your name...I surmise that you are one of the two women on the intarwebs (Black_Widow being the other). Not that it matters, of course, but "women" and "guitar game forum" aren't the most common combination. :D

I thought it might be interesting to hear what everyone does outside of Rocksmith. What career are you in? Or are you still in school?

To start things off: I'm a marriage and family therapist.

RS really helps me unwind and stop thinking about mental problems!

Interviewed for a job when I was a law student and the lawyer interviewing me asked if there was anything I HADN'T done. . . and that was YEARS ago.

So, let's see. Chronologically: drummer/percussionist, former racing crew member and shop boy, law school drop-out, retail manager (hated it), technical writer, expatriated American, skydiving jump plane pilot (plus private helicopter pilot), Army vet (disabled short-timer), armed security guard, wheeled tactical vehicle mechanic, logistics analyst and now back to technical writing. Father of two - son and daughter - who both play multiplayer RS with me which is awesome. Husband of a very understanding nursing student who actually asks if I'm going to play RS at night and who attempts to convince me that all the above (except for the dad part and drumming) hasn't been a colossal waste of time. . .

Yeah really fun at 3AM when the helpdesk pages you, and a few pings tells you it's a circuit or router problem.
You call them back, umm no the server isn't down, it just looks down, but if you'd ping the router, you'd see no response.
Page the network ops guys.

Yep it is those fat electrons getting stuck in the lines. I actually hear an old DS1 tell an officer this when I a brand new tech that had just reported on board the ship in '84. I was like you did not just tell him that. The officer just said ok thanks and left. It has been one of my favorite lines.

Was on the Board for Evergreen MTB for 2 years, including when Duthie opened. I ride up GR to Duthie periodically. I'm I guess what you'd call an "all-mountain" rider in that I like the really tech XC with small drops, but not the FR/DH stuff. I bike to the Tokuls regularly from my home, but really like the Hwy 410 stuff once it's melted out (which should be about late July this year... sigh). When I head to BC, it's usually to ride the Squamish stuff. I helped write a couple of the big grants that we got for South Fork Snoqualmie road-to-trail conversion for I-90, but that's more alpine XC. Not like the Exit-27 stuff you're probably referring to. We probably know a lot of the same people though, especially if you hang at Duthie and 27. Cheers!

Yeah, I do a bunch of different riding (used to do a Tiger Mountain Tuesdays, but that was a few years back). I mainly ride with folks from DirtCorps (and have ridden with those guys before they even had a name), but also know some folks from the HLC. I did help build Semper Dirticus at Duthie, and spend a bunch of time over in Duthie when I'm not riding the i-90 corridor, the north shore, or whistler. Oh I can't wait for summer.

This is job number 21 in my lifetime and it's my favorite of the bunch.

You get to be outside year 'round and riding around on massive equipment is cool enough that it sort of (not really) impresses the ladies.

...and yes, sometimes I'm that guy that is blocking you on your morning commute. I'm sorry, but it's necessary!

I get a lot of people telling me I'm #1 using their middle finger but I also get a lot of happy kids (and adults) waving at me, so it balances out.
