So for the last two years I've been studying a 2 year education to become a IT-consult in IT-security.
With almost 2 weeks left of the education I got a call from one of the biggest IT firms here in southern sweden, and guess what! they offered me a job! smile.gif and not just any kind of job.. i'll be working as a pentration tester (haha) yeah that is the correct term tongue.gif And the thing is, it's just the job i wanted!

The job in it self is to hack their clients and then present the weaknesses in their IT-solutions with tips on solutions etc.

Now it's time to dust of that old wish-list of guitar gear tongue.gif

Well done. It is exciting to see all your hard work pay off in the direction you were headed! And that does sound like a cool job.....being paid to legally hack. tongue.gif

That's great news! Computers is what I'm going to school for. IST Micro Computers is my major. I've been learning about that kinda stuff in Networking and PC Ops. Just completed the semester - I have one year behind me. Going for at least one more year! I'm happy for you! That's going to be a fun job! It's good to make sure your firewalls and such are strong enough. smile.gif

Hehe I seriously don't know where to start tongue.gif that list is like a list that's been growing the last 4 years tongue.gif
If only the bills payed them self I would be adding a new gear thread every day tongue.gif unfortunately that's not the case..
But the first thing will be a Mesa lonestar which I need asap!

next thing will be to either build a warmoth guitar or to order a Custom suhr classic.
