"I don't think my family really knows what I do" Big Grin | :-D

They just know I am a software developer (by position Big Grin | :-D ) but don't know, what I actually do in my organization, they keep asking me, "How do you spent so many hours on a single chair and a computer ?"

Look at the Height of discernment
Once my sister laptop failed to start, she shout on me, 'You are working in computer industry, I dont know anything...Just start my laptop' (wow, people think 'Developer' can do anything with computer now Laugh | :laugh: )
