I was an accountant, turned techie. Got tired of working hard and watching other people make the money. Resigned to do what I love R/C.

I now do exterminating, consulting, and my R/C business. Lots of time with my daughter and playing with my cars both large and small..

I do the extreme R/C sizes that the hobbyshops don't want to support. Mini-Z, HPI Bajas, and I used to run the 1/4 Scale track here in Arizona.

Mainly I kill bugs, and I do it FAST!!

I am a Low Temperature Refrigeration Mechanic- namesake=referjohn

12 years union,EPA universal certified. working on anything refrigerated, my van has 6 different freons on stock, I work mainly supermarkets, industrial, commercial, county ,state,prisons and hospitals.

pay is great,overtime even greater=however 70 hours aweek during the summer months, as i post this i am at 59 hours this week. come home late everynite, at 37 years old my body is telling me it's near 50 years:(
I joined this trade stricly for the paycheck 12 years ago- and tell people it is not for everyone- ON CALL 24/7 FOR 7DAYS STRAIGHT, most dudes give it a try and end up quitting & going over to the HVAC sector- hvac is a non-emergency climate control scheduled during office hours- not so with refrigeration. i get called out at anytime, take your boots off-call, have a nice first bite of dinner-call, just got out of shower ready for bed-call,2:30 in the morning-call..... demanding is a understatement- my phone just rang and luckliy it was the wife and not the answering service:eek:

to wrap up here, i can repair the smallest refer 1 cu ft freezer 1/8th ton. all the way upto Arizona Sherrif Joe city block at the maricopa facility 1.5million ton. normal freon drops in a supermarket after a repair at 600lbs freon R404a
that 1 cu ft freezer takes 3oz R134a

if anyone has a question about refer or hvac- feel free to ask me

My life had all kinds of jobs, but the ones I remember best were:

-Body man for a old tuner shop (I did the fiberglass bodykits, around the age of 16)
-Warehouse night shift supervisor (the races with the forklifts were exciting... :p around age of 18 or 19)
-Carrier for a last minute emergency carrying company (for this one I wished I had a motorcycle, would have been much easier... I was 22)
-Quality control man at a mistery shopping agency (I basically checked reports, was 23)
-Staff, building a stage for some collage party (structure building is one of my favourite tasks, I was ..and still am 25)

Last one was this year but even before that I was starting to have a lot of trouble getting a job cause I didn't finnish school, so now I'm studying once again to get everything done and have employment once again. :)
My actual course is Multimedia, not my favourite but I managed to cut some corners to it. ;)

-Warehouse night shift supervisor (the races with the forklifts were exciting... around age of 18 or 19)

:eek::confused: yikes... that's kinda unsettling to hear... i'm into heavy equipment and deal with operators, where safety is one of our top concerns... guess it would be kind of hard to explain (not to mention quite embarrassing) how and why a forklift is laying on its side to the boss... :o:(

but i guess heck you're only 18 or 19 once... :rolleyes:
just hope you guys didn't have any accidents...

deloreanaka8
2010.10.20, 07:35 AM
Yeah I was around 18 when I had that job, but I'll explain what I meant by races.
There was a hall around 60m long, at around 5am when work was done, we would do a drag race with what battery charge was left from the empty forklifts. :)
I'd never think about letting those things go into dangerous cornering cause it would be a certain flip. :eek:
We never had a single accident and we also managed to do the safest and fastest moving in that warehouse, even a few company prizes got involved. ;)

I work in Developer Evangelism at Microsoft. Our basic job is to convince customers to use our technologies. My team focuses on working with major brands and properties to get them to use our latest and greatest stuff as a showcase of what's possible. As an example, we helped NBC build their Sunday Night Football application using Silverlight to deliver live HD streams with multiple camera angles - which wasn't even close to being easy, nor cheap. :)

We'll be hosting a big Mini-Z race at our upcoming web developer conference in Las Vegas this April. We'll be geeking it out with some .NET goodness. Kyosho is sponsoring the activity. I spoke with @mini-z today and he's also going to help us out. Turns out he's a .NET developer too (a man of many talents, it appears).

Nice to get to know all of you. This seems like a really tight, friendly community. Glad to be a part of it. Hopefully the Mini-Z stuff we'll be doing at Microsoft will benefit the community in the future.

Wow! Sounds exciting! I have a feeling you are going to fit in well here!

You are absolutely right about this community it is very tight knit. I have had the opportunity to put many of the screen names to a live face and have met nothing but quality folks.

Welcome to the forum. Hope to meet you at an event some time. Maybe you could make it to one of our Carolina CUP events some time.

From the sounds of your enthusiasm sounds like you will be adding Mini-z evangilist to your job description soon!

I am one of the chaffeurs who drives this Trust Fund kid to the few local tracks every week from Central Park West Manhattan. I do know his dad but he wouldn't let me take his E92 M3 or 911 Carrerra to the Mini-z track with his son. I get lunch from the trustafarian in return. He tends to ruin every Mini-z car or part I sold to him. I then fix his used Mini-zs for a living. Currently I have 3 blown or messed up ASF boards from him.
