We need new threads here to entertain and learn about each other cuz even the smartest man knows, you don't have to be rich when you have a friend in every field ;)

After you buy that IBM + Lenovo equipment I am the guy who does the warranty work. I service all IBM equipment: laptops, pc's, cash registers, ATM's, servers, A/S400, RISK, mainframes, and loads of stuff that other people make but don't want to service themselves. Mostly I just drive around in circles all day in the Durham + Kawartha area. Too bad I have to have a company van and can't take the bike everyday.

Steel Building sales/consultant. I think most know. But I do give cost pricing to all ADV'ers...

Gas prices aren't bad if you think of gas as liquid exploding dinosaurs.

Until you come close to death, you really never know how or what it is to live.

Is it an adventure to find oneself, or is it destiny......

When I work for you you'll never see a bill. You'll be glad I was there but not too pleased that you needed me. I work every day of the year, holidays and stats mean nothing, I work 24 hours a day. I'm a firefighter here in Edmonton.

Building Trades

As some know my infinite coolness doesn't just come from being me, far from it actually.

Our family has been in the Heating/Airconditioning industry for about 60 years so I don't know much else. If I don't know what is wrong with your a/c in 15 minutes money says you need a new one.

We Engineer, Manufacture, Install, Maintain and Repair equipment for every building application imaginable. Air heat, Wet heat, A/C, Refrigeration, Specialty Controls, Sheetmetal and custom fabrication. Most of our work is in the commercial sector but we dabble in high end residential comfort of all imaginable descriptions.

This summer has been no good for business to date( been f'n good for riding) but rest assured it'll get hotter than a firecracker soon enough.

drcool to the rescue

My forte is equipment replacement. Here are some pics of a recent adventure. 15,000lb, 24 feet long and 3 stories up. Refered to as BFH(big fookin hoist). Some may recognize my man Moondoggie aka slavedriver in the blue tshirt on the roof.

Some will also recognize my trailer. Most won't see it in this position. It was a great way to get materials to the roof and the garbage removed.

quite a profitable way to spend a Saturday.

I'm a printer by trade and computers pretty much destroyed the side of the business I was in (B.C, LH's, Envs & invoices) and now I "print" beer & pop cans for a living. Those of you living in the East will recognize my work if you drink Kokanee Beer or any of the Big Rock brand of products that are sold in cans

Oh yea I absolutley LOVE my fookin job

plug this?

I have a local paper spread just like Uber's but from '96.
I will refrain from posting it as hair warfare might erupt.

now for the plug

Mr. ArthDuro has been slinging paint and pencils since he was 9 months old
and has spent the last 11 years of his life dabbling in the finer points of visual
communications. That makes me a gun for hire in all things visual or the more
commonly known graphic designer. Besides just straight up kickin' butt I might
help you get graphics for your bike, get a shirt or album made, put together a
website or put an identity to your company's image or product.

my first bike looked very much like this
