<div class="IPBDescription">Who is the average NS player?</div> I will be finishing school in a few months and will be entering the workforce and I started wondering:

What does the average NS player do? I am a bit interested in all the types of people that NS attracts. Do we have any Doctors out there? Maybe some military personnel?

So, Who the heck are you people? <!--emo&:D--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif'><!--endemo-->

I am currently a Computer Engineering student at Pennsylvania State Unversity.

    Um, I wouldn't call myself an average NS player, but I'm currently a senior of Social Science Education (just what this country needs, gamers teaching their children history) at the luxurious <a href='http://www.kennesaw.edu' target='_blank'>Kennesaw State University</a>. As a part time job I work for my dad at an office, but I'm soon quitting to become a full time slacker.

    Well I sleep then wake up, take a shower and play NS till like 12 or so. Spend time with girlfriend and friends, then go to work till 11. Get back on and play some more with the clan I am in. Eat and once more go to sleep. Rinse and repeat.

    Business Systems Architect

    Which in non-HR terms means I'm the lead programmer and application architect for my company. I make most architecture and system decisions for IS: choose languages and platforms, decide on middleware tools, evaluate new technologies, R&D, all the tough coding, etc. Lots of project management and design/planning, but there is still lots of code to do. Code mainly in VC++, but have coded in just about every language out there.

    If you've heard of the tool <a href='http://www.telefragged.com/wally' target='_blank'>Wally</a>, well, that's me and represents the kind of stuff I do for a living.
