While some of you can live the glamorous life of being a DJ and get the bills paid, some of us need to get up early and do the crappy stuff to make our employers richer. This makes me think about some stuff...
1) If you are doing gigs, how do you manage to get up early? You could maybe be caffeinated during work hours but this cant be done for too long. Specially if you sometimes have to work at home.
2) Djing is not a cheap "hobby". I have seen the "Show us your setup" post and I have seen a lot of pricey stuff with multiple computers and gadgets, dedicated rooms and what not. You must be rollin' in the dough!
3) With DJing and computers going hand in hand I think maybe most of you with a day job should have something computer related. IT manager, Db administrator, Linux demigod etc...
IT System Admin. DJ practice/new music hunt is moderately compromised by extra workload I need to finish at home besides home/family duties. I wish I could take my VCI100/MPD32 to work but I managed to install a demo version of Traktor and Ableton very hidden on my work computer. Although the pay is good is not that I cant buy more equipment but that I would not have the time to learn and configure properly more gadgetry.
