Most of our readers have jobs doing computer-related work. Not all of those readers find their jobs enjoyable. If you could have your ideal job in a computer-related field, what would it be? If you are in your ideal job, tell us why it is ideal. Related to that, how many hours a week do you work, and do you think it's reasonable? What would you consider a reasonable work week? We're interested in getting an international cross-section, so if you live outside the US, we'd love to hear from you as well.

I am also currently working with Websphere, helping IBM to set up e-commerce solutions. I put in whatever hours are needed from about 30 a week to 70. Fortunately it's generally nearer the 30 than the 70 !! I enjoy my job, it's pretty varied, but I had to go through about 6 years of crap to get here.<p> The worst job I had was working for a medical IT company, I was on the front line taking calls from hospital departments, patching a real pig of a system and having to commute over 3 hours a day for the privelige.
