All sorts of jobs at many levels in "paper trade" before being excreted for the last time in January. Now do some exam invigilation at local school, but am otherwise retired.

And run a website if you didn't know. Cool

Programme collecting is a very insular hobby - I always imagined that serious collectors had jobs which allowed them to maintain/reinforce that particular personality trait.

Attention to detail and a tendency towards pedantry are another two traits which may well be common amongst us all?

My dad expected and longed for me to follow in his footsteps and drive buses for a living, but instead in went to work in an office (yawn).

Years later, I now wish I had become an archeologist.

Just my thoughts for you all.
