Wow, a lot of IT guys............cough nerds cough..........just kidding, don't hurt me. I'm a college student, majoring in sororities if you catch my drift.

I'm a software/web consultant. I like looking through the server logs mid-day to see who's browsing the main site (we don't keep statistics on forum usage). It's always a bunch of people using thei

I get some flexibility to get out and hit the course during the week which is great.

I'm one of those home office web developers.  Currently neck deep in a mobile app project for a nonprofit.  Also learning some new web app framework or another at any given time.

Originally envisioned plenty of time to get out to the courses when I made the transition from hobbyist to full-timer.  Most definitely not, as I tend to get head-down absorbed in work all waking and some should be sleeping hours even when I -do- have available time to step away.  I like my work too much.

Quick update because the plans have changed a little. It's been a busy start to the year with acquiring more properties, networking, traveling and doing a lot of due diligence. Through meeting some great people things have kind of evolved from a "buy and hold" strategy to now I've been offered an opportunity to join an investment banking firm. My focus will be on the syndicated/institutional real estate side of the business. So I've just started working on getting the securities licenses that are required.

Update to the update:

Passed my Series 22 and now studying for the 63. Long term I'll also be looking to get my real estate salesperson license and Series 7. For the past few months I've been focusing more on the marketing side of things. I've helped oversee the rebuilt/redesign of the firm's site (might have to do another one) and moving on to building our online marketing platform from scratch. Lead generation campaigns utilizing social media, landing pages, calls to action, email marketing, etc. If anyone has experience doing this I'd love the opportunity to pick your brain. 

I've created a lot of content but haven't been able to share it because the regulatory body that reviews our communications hasn't approved the new website yet. So with all that on hold I'm using the time to get my licenses. 

My wife is also part of the operation, she got her licenses just before summer and has been learning the ropes on the sales/advisor side and doing well. Basically what we do is help real estate investors who are tired of being landlords move them into hands-off real estate investments. A lot of our clients are located in California, bought real estate in the 80's-90's, want to sell but don't want to pay the capital gains. We "hold their hand" through the process, help them defer the taxes and allow them to "graduate" to large-scale, institutional grade real estate. The cool thing is my wife and I are investors ourselves and it's been a lot of fun to work with the clients and the sponsors (companies that offer/manage these real estate projects).

@mvmac Impressive!  I was a real estate broker for nearly thirty years. I used to have my own company, managed a few others and was president of a local community real estate board.  I had a few good years, and a lot of not so good years. At one time, was in the top 25 in California (in a particular franchise company), but you probably know more than I ever did at least from the investment side. I don't know what a series 7 or series 22 is, but I have been out of it for many years now having sold my last property in 1997. Oh, also did a stint in mortgage banking.

I'm an orthopedic PA who sees just about any musculoskeletal issue that walks, crawl, or rolls into our office. I love setting fractures, reducing dislocations, and doing surgery. Mostly, I like helping people get back to life and doing what they want to do after injuries.  

I'm working so that I can one day reach the pinnacle of our earthly lives in being a starter for a golf course wherein I fuss at young teenagers waiting to tee off while having the benefit of playing golf for free

Hello everyone! I've migrated over from freegolfinfo.com. I don't often post at any the three or four forums that I joined a decade or so ago. Generally I just follow interesting discussions but rarely post. I retired July 1st this year after a forty two year career as a Steamfitter/Pipefitter/Welder. Five years ago I played to a 10.3 index but only played 4 or 5 times a year for the past 4 seasons! Late this fall I played every three or four days for three weeks and there were positive signs that I might play in the mid-eighties more often. Winter put a stop to the season last Friday so I'll find out next Spring!

Time to update this. I switched jobs in August. I am now working for FirstEnergy in Akron, Ohio as a Transmission Line Engineer. I mostly work on design and conflict issues with 69 kV lines or above. This job requires me to know more on the structural side of engineering since we deal more on designing transmission facilities from substations to substations.

    • Another example is giving unsolicited advice. Could be as simple as, "it plays long." Supposed to be a two stroke penalty.  
    • Does anyone remember that photo from about 10 years ago that showed a guy walking across Washington Road with his beginner set of golf clubs on a  buggy because he had secured a ticket for one of the practice rounds? It was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I've tried to find it but can't.
    • This was the fourth time I played round of golf and very first time I kept a score. I got 115, double par limit,  good bad or ugly?  This was also first time I played with this neighbor and his friend, thanks to them who don’t mind a newbie like myself. The course, canyon lake CA, is pretty short course 6000 yds but with some narrow fairway and quite a bit of elevation. My observation The first few rounds was when my friend, who got me into golf game, showed me around of what I would see in golf course and also showed me different stroke/shot and different clubs. First off, good stuffs, I got a few chances of birdie, two of them were short par 3 (150-160 yds) 5-iron hit on the green, a few straight driver 200+yds landed on fairway. Only got 1 par out of 18 holes, mostly double bogies and a few double par. Lost only 2 balls, got into bunker only 3 times (2 were successfully rescued in first strokes) and only 2 second hit from the tee.    The bad, ugly and need a lot of improvement. Got 4-5 drop penalties 2 lost ball, the rest were in the rough and behind brushes. Never got 1 putt into the holes mostly 2 putts and a few 3 putts. And quite a bit (4-5) of hit the ground shots. My observation. I need a lot of consistency, I got a few good shots while my neighbor’s friend (score 85) got only a few bad shots. Better judgment, instead of easily chipping (less than 30yds with clearly view to the flag, I pitched and end up either short or way over. Aiming, I only got the ball landed where I want it a few times, a few 15-25 feet off and a lot of not even close 😢😢😢. And clubs selection, I got a few shorts shot to the green (80-100yds). I hope this will improve the more I play. I enjoyed the game and company, I say it way better than when I had no idea what to do and what clubs to use.😁😁😁. A few shots I got on video  (short and missed aim, too bad I didn’t get any of lucky shots)  
    • Day 62, July 26, 2021: Three-quarter swing work again today, hey I may lose a little bit of distance, but I know where the ball is going.
    • Iacas doesn't need to. The polling has been done by others and the general feeling is overwhelmingly clear. These titles have to go. This is an issue that has been addressed for at least a couple of decades and it is only now that things are actually being changed, rather than merely talked about. You don't get to say that something isn't objectively offensive because it's an issue you don't care about. People are going to decent lengths to prove to you that it isn't a matter of opinion. The fact that YOU don't care is irrelevant. There are a few in this thread who say stuff like "people are too easily offended" or "people are too thin-skinned". No, people care about  demonstrably negative and demeaning names and stereotypes and are supporting efforts to wipe them out. Why does that bother you?
