I literally began at Speakeasy digging ditches, when I wasn’t trying to get my ‘Internet in a Burlap Sack’ working. When the location was being prepared for an internet connection, we had to dig a trench across the entire floor to insert the T1 (thrilling speed in the day,) so the SPARC box would connect to the Internet.
After doing well at that job, I was promoted to painter and painted the walls after the drywall was put in place. I liked doing the dirty jobs at that time in 1994.
