What do you do for a living?

We own an autobody/welding shop, and I LOVE working on Benzes.

I am a monitoring technician for Verizon Telecommunicatinos.

I like snowmobiling, hiking, (don't get to do much of each), and tinkering with my cars.

I'm the National Sales Manager for a food company. You probably haven't heard of us because we're mainly a food ingredients company. You know, like the commercials for BASF, "we don't make the surfboards, we make them stronger".

We do have one retail brand that has pretty good distribution all across the U.S. called "Better than Bouillon", it's a soup base in a glass jar with a black label.

I'm an International Buyer from Stuttgart Germany.
I came over to the United States in 1980 for a German company ( MAHLE ) on a two year contract.
It's been 22 year now and I loved every minute of it.
I like playing golf, scuba diving and work on my two Benzes.

What a useful person to know.. Is it a full hydraulic moving thingy setup - can I get one of those cheap from you..?

I'm a Computer Systems Engineering student by the way, and work for my Dad's independant garage the rest of the time.

G-Benz - How easy is it to hide little things in the software, an 'Easter Egg'. The oscilloscopes I use in my University Laboratory have Tetris on them, you need to know the right button press to load it up..!

later,

Pentoman,
Our flight simulators are stationary based(for now at least.We just purchased a hydraulic base, onto which we will sit one of our units) unlike those of our neighbor's CAE, whose units are fully hydraulic.Of course ours are a fraction of the cost.We make everything here, from the software down to the knobs and buttons for small twin props up to 737s.
Check out our website:http://www.mechtonix.ca
...And yes you can have one cheap...$500 000US.
....Everything is relative.
