Funnily enough, Office Space is pretty close.  I write bank software.  Currently on contract working on software that the bankers use to perform account setups for a bank that's listed on the S&P 500.  No one knows the names of the companies that I've worked for directly, but the names of the banks that use the software are widely known.

I pull other peoples nose-hair out, you know, as a hobby.

Professionally, I work for one of Canada's largest insurance companies (GWL) as a "Senior FileNet Server Support Analyst". Basically, I'm the guardrail between tipsy developers and total. product. failure.

FileNet? It's now an IBM product. Think Sharepoint, except better. Tongue

I am working at this very moment, having had a server CPU allocated to an Oracle back-end DB server fail to work.
So they're cleaning that up, and then I get to start everything up and test to make sure it all still works.

Go team.

Teach ESL at a junior/high school in Japan. I enjoy it a lot. Vacation days are ridiculous. I literally have more (paid) days off than working days. And my working days usually end by 2 or 3 pm. On the other hand I envy all who are living at home in their own country with a house of their own and a nice backyard.  Maybe someday...
