I mentioned it in my intro, I am the Youth coordinator at a retreat center. what that means is that I am responsible for developing a the youth program from the ground up. what I do is give motivational and spiritual development workshops to kids aged 13-19. I also work with gang and wanna be gangstas

ehenz, I totally relate, somedays it seems like wo earn every penny, but there are those few that make it all worthwhile.

I am a long time member of the ever-shrinking leisure class, also known as an un-employed bum. I used to be a professional student and a humanitarian aid worker, as well as a few other things I shall not mention.

It is curious that none of the TECHNO's noticed that you are suppose to pick two items.......

......but the percentage mixes both choice together.

Another employed computer geek here. I read the instructions, does that make me a freak among the geeks?

That is not strictly true. Many techno-geeks don't read directions but there is a strong subset of techno-geeks that are compulsive documentation readers. I followed the directions and I am a systrem engineer, formerly a sys-admin.
