Currently I am looking for a job in Ricoh/Pentax, it seems to me the most promising hypothesis.

I currently run post offices for people across the NW of England. This means each day I get to study different places. However, I have been offered a permanent position somewhere I have photographed to death! I have a decision to make.

For the last nearly 30 years I worked at the University as an AV and later IT/AV manager.
So I still use 1x Mac PowerBook titanium + 3x MacBook Pro's at home, 1x Macbook Pro and Macbook Air at work,
Plus a number of various Dell notebooks.
Well, I can perhaps be classified as a nerd or even as an old fart.
My place is an IT/AV Eldorado, ( separated a couple years ago, just having a break, still friends _ so finally can do what I really want!).
I have tried to sleep with Pentax cameras and a number of various lense, no I am not ready for this yet, none of the tripods did any better.
My cat is much more enjoyable choice although that might change with the time.......
Enjoy your Pentax gear while you can!

An oblique answer Sandy. Iíll play along. I use math to save the lives of absolute strangers.

I'm an international hitman and spy, operating under the cover of my day job as an astronaut brain surgeon.

Either that or I'm medically retired from the travel industry, and doing volunteer charity work because I find that rewarding in ways other than financial.

So you imagine there is not a single woman on the Pentax forum?

But the lethal drugs aren't mine - the patients get them free of charge from me.

What I charge for is my ability to avoid the lethality

It's just a casual English usage of "you guys", inclusive of everyone.

We have many female members here
